Chicago has emerged as the fifth biggest city for outward migration in the third quarter, and they’re largely looking to move to South Bend, Indiana, according to a Redfin report.
The report, which analyzed the migration patterns of Redfin users across 87 U.S. cities, noted that in Q3, Chicago experienced a net outflow of 6,257 residents.
While that’s not great news, Milwaukee, Indiana, and Rockford, which made the 8th, 9th and 10th spots on the outflow list, respectively, are mainly looking to the Windy City to relocate.
“Remote work has opened up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to buying a home,” said Redfin chief economist Daryl Fairweather. “Many residents of expensive areas like New York or Los Angeles couldn’t manage to afford rent and save for a home at the same time. So it’s no wonder that these folks are looking to buy homes in much more affordable places like Louisville and Little Rock.”
