People Moving Out of Cities

That’s fine. Just leave your liberal politics there too.

As the real estate market began to recover in May, home searches in suburban zip codes jumped 13%, according to, one of the largest real estate listing websites. That doubled the pace of growth in urban areas.

While homes are spending more time on the market overall, due to complications surrounding closings, both suburban and rural markets are not experiencing that lag time as much, due to very strong demand.

“This migration to the suburbs is not a new trend, but it has become more pronounced this spring,” said Javier Vivas, director of economic research. “After several months of shelter-in-place orders, the desire to have more space and the potential for more people to work remotely are likely two of the factors contributing to the popularity of the burbs.”

    Charles Marohn of the Strong Towns movement will cry in his beer when he sees this.  They have been trumpeting the upcoming apocalyptic demise of the suburbs. A vast wasteland of empty malls and crumbling streets & infrastructure.

    Althouse is symbolic of the UW Law School:  confused.  They were that way in the ’30’s, ’40’s, ’50’s, ’60’s, ’70’s……and remain that way today.

    Somewhere between the Welcome Wagon and “you’re not from around here, are you?”

    I hear Kewaskum is an inviting community. I’d encourage urban citizens to move there.

    Here in Arizona, our problem is that they are fleeing California. They sell their house there and pay cash for a brand new house here.
    Then they expect our stores to be like their stores in California and they are mad that we don’t have a Trader Joe’s, whatever that is.
    Then we had a Black Lives Matter here but were missing the Black people part. And they didn’t riot. Fortunately, we had the National Guard, cops and an armed posse there to make sure things didn’t go wrong.

    I encourage anyone that moves to Kewaskum to leave any attitude of “sanctifying criminals” behind.

    If you want to sanctify criminals, tear down police, and spread a cancer of radical “CHAZ like” liberalism, I suggest moving where Nord lives. He seems to cheer that kind of thing on with little denouncement.

    For Christ sake, Kevin. I was complimenting Kewaskum and you go into a tizzy.

    Again Kevin plays his “jump monkey jump” denounce-this game.

    Because he knows what we think.  He just knows.  And he understands all the subtle dimensions.
