I was planning on moving to Denver in May, but decided to wait until things got back to normal a little bit. I've watched the rent prices go down since then, so I plan on moving in September.
We've proven that my wife & I can do our jobs remotely. We now have the ability to leave our tiny apartment and buy a house, be closer to family, and still access the NYC job market.
Fell in love. And it no longer made sense to pay more in rent than a mortgage for a full blown house (with a yard!). It was already on the horizon, but COVID was the nudge to make it happen. It was scary to see the masses leave, and equally heartbreaking. I wasn't ready to leave, but maybe it's better that way.
