Housing bracing for downturn as investors try to get ahead of Fed: Michael Kantrowitz
Piper Sandler chief investment strategist Michael Kantrowitz discusses the health of the U.S. economy and where the housing market heads as the Fed continues to raise rates on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
Homebuyers are looking to relocate from two expensive California cities more than any other major metro in the U.S.
A new Redfin report found buyers were looking to leave San Francisco and Los Angeles, with 24% and 20% of local users searching elsewhere, respectively.
"Homebuyers typically leave expensive coastal job centers more than they leave other places, a trend that started before the pandemic and picked up steam due to remote work and rising housing costs. They most commonly head to more affordable regions. Sacramento, where homes cost less than half what they do in the Bay Area, is the most common destination for people [leaving] San Francisco, for instance," the report said.
The calculations were determined by net outflow: a measure of how many more Redfin users looked to leave an area than to move in.
The report's migration analysis was based on about 2 million Redfin users who viewed for-sale homes online across 100 metro areas from August through October, calculating the portion of overall home searchers that are migrants.
