Crime, taxes and climate change among why homeowners decide to relocate

Homeowners who moved since the Covid-19 pandemic began cited crime as the biggest factor in their decision, according to a new study by real estate firm Redfin.

The survey, 1,023 U.S. residents who moved to a new home since March 1, 2020, was fielded from Aug. 7, 2021 to Aug. 12, 2021 by research technology company Qualtrics, and found 50% of homeowners said crime was an important factor in their move. 

Homeowners also cited cost of living, school quality and taxes in order of importance, according to the survey.
