It’s no secret that the pandemic accelerated certain real estate trends — namely people moving to places where they could buy a home and take advantage of more space. A new Placer.ai report shows where people have moved over the past two years, including a look at where Brooklynites have gone during the pandemic.
Overall, New York has lost about 1.3 percent of its population statewide since the first quarter of 2020, according to Placer.ai’s analysis of cellphone location data. Low-tax states in the Sunbelt Region and Mountain West benefited most from population gains during the pandemic, cementing an existing trend of people moving from expensive states to cheaper ones.
