Data generated from the company's one-way moves include:

#12 - Johnson City / Kingsport, TN
#14 - Asheville, NC
#23 - Melbourne, FL

Didn't see this coming at first back in March 2020, but as the pandemic lingered and the mass migration started we and a bunch of our friends landed in a good position to benefit from it.

Friends back in our old stomping grounds of Melbourne, FL say the area has gone bonkers too with all of the people moving in. We still have property there which we have received multiple offers on since then (it's off the market) but are holding out as land near the coast there comes at a premium.

While I understand the desire to move somewhere smaller or "interesting" like Asheville, people who are moving with their current jobs that were formerly butt-in-seat five days a week in the office, but went remote for COVID, are probably going to have to make some hard decisions when they get inevitably recalled to the office.

Many positions have now been restructured for remote work. Will they all stick for the long haul once the vaccine is widely distributed? Of course not, but a large portion most likely will.

Employers and the general population will be hesitant to rush back to pre-Covid traditional work environments even with a vaccine available, and our “quick to panic” and media driven population will be in this boat for a few years post Covid.

In general, lots of people have lots of different options with their positions now, and are rightfully exercising them. And despite the “doom and gloom” portrayed by the media during 2020, not everyone had a bad year. We certainly had a good 2020, but we’re also welcoming to change and don’t watch the news.

I agree - COVID has changed many things forever. The way businesses conduct their business, as well as the way universities and schools operate will not be returning to their pre-COVID ways of doing things. There will be much more remote work as well as virtual learning.
