More Buyers Are Wanting Suburbs
While the country is reopening and restrictions are being lifted, the quarantine experience is still fresh in many potential buyer’s minds—and many of those buyers are favoring suburban homes over more dense city spaces. More buyers are wanting suburbs!
According to data outlined in a recent realtor.com article, interest in suburban properties is significantly outpacing interest in city dwellings. Online viewings of listings in suburban zip codes on realtor.com grew 13 percent in May. This is almost twice the 7 percent pace of growth in urban areas.
“This migration to the suburbs is not a new trend, but it has become more pronounced this spring,” Javier Vivas, realtor.com’s director of economic research, said in the article. “After several months of shelter-in-place orders, the desire to have more space and the potential for more people to work remotely are likely two of the factors contributing to the popularity of the burbs.”
Your can explore so many of the Gainesville area suburbs via our Communities Tab. Under that tab at the top of our site, you can select different areas ( NW Gainesville-east of I-75, NW Gainesville-west of I-75, SW Gainesville, NE Gainesville, Newberry, Jonesville, Alachua, High Springs, Tioga, Haile Plantation). We’ve even made special community pages gated communities, and over 55 communities. And then each of those pages will provide you a list of all the different suburbs & communities by name.
Each of these community pages show the names of each neighborhood in that area. Then you will see all the current homes for sale in each of these neighborhoods! The Bohn Team has built each of these community pages, and you may want to “save” or “bookmark” the communities you like best – as these pages update daily. It will keep you up to date on all the homes that come on the market in your favorite neighborhoods!
So, what does this mean for you? If you’ve been thinking about a move to the suburbs, you’re not alone—and if you’ve been thinking about selling your suburban home, it looks like you’re going to have plenty of buyer interest.”
