Moving To The Country

Green Acres Is The Place To Be (insert treble clef here)! I know this isn't a new trend but the desire to move out of the GTA is real, 4 of my sales in the last couple of months have been country properties. We are hearing reports from rural realtors all across southern Ontario that business is booming as the stampede of city slickers with cash in hand head to the country. Covid driven remote work opportunities are exploding as corporations shutter their expensive downtown offices realizing that they can get the same productivity from workers while they sit in their own home offices. These workers in turn quickly realize that they don't need to pay expensive rents or live in expensive homes on small lots in the GTA to do their work, so off to the country they go! Will be interesting to see if this "trend" really has wheels.
