A perfect storm of factors is enhancing rural appeal. A combination of the coronavirus pandemic, shelter in place orders, social distancing, the security and availability of food, economic uncertainty, angry and violent protests, as well as looting and vandalism is prompting waves of Americans living in big cities and metropolitan areas to rethink where they want to live. If not quite a mass exodus, the pandemic has sent enough urban dwellers to the exits to shake up the rural land market, especially in the Southeastern corner of the United States.
After all, social distancing is much easier in a rural setting, and hunting, fishing, and kayaking were “social distancing” activities before it was a thing. Moreover, with people demonstrating that their jobs can be done just as effectively from home and a lot of companies offering their employees the opportunity to work remotely for good, many Americans are weighing a move to areas where they can buy properties with more space, privacy, and security.
LANDFLIP’s Founder, Ryan Folk, was invited back as a guest on The Land Show last week. Ryan, along with hosts Dave Milton and Jonathan Goode, land agents at Southeastern Land Group, discuss the spike in buyer interest in rural land for sale, the unprecedented traffic growth across the LANDFLIP NETWORK and what an exciting time it is to be in the land business.
