BIG CITY EXODUS: Prior to COVID-19 there was an ongoing exodus from the over regulated, tax-burdened states in the Northeast, Midwest, and even California. Will this migration accelerate as people opt for a safer suburban lifestyle? How many will head to the Sunshine State and the spring training home of the New York Yankees? These people are already calling and coming. Nearly 70% of New York City residents are renting anyway, they can leave. Over half of Californians are renters. The lifestyle, amenities, and cost-of-living found in the Tampa By area offers a ray of hope to those seeking an alternative to the densely populated cities and towns that have experienced the worst of the pandemic. Having moved back to the Tampa Bay myself after nine years in San Frannsicso... I have a first hand appreciation for the Florida lifestyle.
