“Classic architecture, international cuisine, adventurous activities and serious art: This Western New York city is blossoming.”
Maybe it’s the food, the Bills, the sunsets, the arts, or one of the many reasons Californians want to move to Buffalo. No matter how you look at it our City has a lot to offer, and it’s finally getting the recognition it deserves.
According to real estate website Redfin, more and more people are looking to move to Buffalo during the pandemic. The website claims that its data shows house hunters looking to move to Buffalo increased by 107% since the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020.
The biggest probable reason? Affordability. Redfin says:
“The increasing popularity of Louisville, Buffalo and most of the other destinations on the top 10 list like El Paso and Tulsa is likely due in part to their affordability … [compared to Los Angeles and New York], the typical home in Louisville sold for $229,000 in September, and in Buffalo it was $190,000.”
Another interesting fact?
“Los Angeles and New York are the number one places Redfin.com users are leaving as they move to the areas growing most in popularity. Los Angeles is not only the number one origin for people looking at homes in the Santa Barbara metro, but it’s also the top origin for people looking in El Paso, Little Rock and Tulsa. New York City metro is the top origin for people looking in Buffalo and Syracuse, plus Louisville and Greenville, SC.”
With great affordability, amazing food, great sport fan bases and more remote work options, it makes sense why more people are looking to move to the Queen City.
