Every year, thousands of people relocate to cities in search of better education and employment opportunities. However, the population of the suburban areas has recently risen dramatically. So, what makes people prefer to live in the suburbs? After all, there are many benefits that the suburbs provide to their citizens. It provides people with a balanced lifestyle that combines the best of both rural and urban ways of life.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also had a wide-ranging impact on almost all of us. In effect, if you consider five of your friends, at least one of them has relocated as a result of the pandemic—or knows somebody that has. It turns out that the suburbs are by far the most popular place to live during the pandemic! So, what is the reason for this, and what would it mean for the residential market in the future? Here’s what you should know about the recent trend of suburbanization.
Why Are People Moving To The Suburbs?
Certainly, the suburbs have seen a considerable increase in population in the last year or so. But why? What is it about this pandemic that has people considering relocating to the suburbs? This is due to a number of major factors.
#1. Work from Home
First is the phenomenon of working from home, which has become much more prevalent since the pandemic. Heretofore, most jobs were concentrated in large cities, so people would feel compelled to live in the area in order to have a decent commute to and from work. But, with so many companies now enabling remote work, it’s no longer required to live in a big city to make a good living.
#2. Low Cost of Living
Low living costs are one of the primary reasons people relocate to the suburbs from the city. Whether you want to buy a home, rent a house, take public transportation, or pay your utility bills, the suburbs have always been less expensive than the city. Once city dwellers realize that their income and expenses are the same and that they are not going to save money, they are obligated to relocate to the suburbs.
#3. Closer to Greenery
If you enjoy nature, you should consider relocating to the suburbs. People prefer the suburban areas to the city for a variety of reasons, including access to green areas. With the exception of parks, there aren’t many opportunities to see shrubs and trees in the city. The suburbs, on the other hand, enable you to be surrounded by nature.
#4. Stronger Community
Establishing a sense of community in the city is incredibly difficult. It is because everyone has a busy schedule in order to make more and more money, and no one has enough opportunities to form friendships with those around them. Folks who relocate to the suburbs benefit from a higher quality of social life. With time, they form close bonds with their neighbours and become members of a personal and social community.
#5. Spacious Property Sizes
City dwellers are aware that the closer you get to the city, the smaller your living space becomes. It’s why, when people recognize that their city home is too small for their existing family members or that their kids are getting older and need their own room, they relocate to the suburbs because they offer a more expansive household.
As can be seen, moving to the suburbs has become a more popular option since 2020. Will this trend continue? Many experts believe that as long as people can work in a remote location, they will prefer to live in the suburbs rather than the city, owing to the larger properties and lower prices.
And it’s probable that many people working from home now will be able to do so even after the pandemic is over.
