Americans-Fleeing-Costly-Crime-Ridden-Blue-State-Cities-for-Red-States

Americans are escaping Democrat-run cities in blue states due to soaring housing costs, inflation, and crime.

According to a report from the real estate brokerage site Redfin, Americans are now relocating to more affordable metro areas.

Redfin reveals an all-time high of 32.6 percent of its users “looked to move from one metro to another in the second quarter, up slightly from 32.3% in the first quarter and roughly 26% before the pandemic.”

Unsurprisingly, eight of the top ten cities with the highest outflows of residents are Democrat-run cities, while the other two cities are Washington, DC, and Boston, Massachusetts.

Charlie Baker, the Bay State’s governor, is a Republican, but Massachusetts has also gone blue in every presidential election since 1984.

These are the ten cities with the highest net outflows of residents, and they are all led by left-leaning mayors:

  • San Francisco, CA – Net Outflow: 48,718
  • Los Angeles, CA – Net Outflow: 40,632
  • Los Angeles, CA – Net Outflow: 40,632
  • New York, NY – Net Outflow: 35,165
  • Washington, DC– Net Outflow: 24,492
  • Seattle, WA – Net Outflow: 18,594
  • Boston, MA – Net Outflow: 12,492
  • Detroit, MI – Net Outflow: 7,334
  • Denver, CO – Net Outflow: 5,635
  • Chicago, IL – Net Outflow: 4,769
  • Minneapolis, MN – Net Outflow: 2,795

The cities listed have higher outflows than the second quarter of 2021, except New York City, Denver, and San Francisco.

Redfin deputy chief economist Taylor Marr stated:

“The typical home in San Francisco or San Jose now costs more than $1.5 million,” he said.

“Add in today’s 5%-plus mortgage rates, and you have a sky-high monthly payment.”

“Those factors, along with more companies giving employees the permanent flexibility to work remotely, are driving a larger portion of buyers to consider homes in other parts of the country.”

“Someone who would have to stretch beyond their budget in Los Angeles may be able to afford a home in Phoenix or San Antonio comfortably.”

In quarter two, metros areas in red and purple states are among the cities with the most increased net inflows.

Six of the top ten cities are either Florida or Texas, both of which have Republican governors:

  • Miami, FL – Net Inflow: 12,614
  • Tampa, FL – Net Inflow: 9,841
  • Phoenix, AZ – Net Inflow: 9,730
  • Sacramento, CA – Net Inflow: 9,640
  • Las Vegas, NV – Net Inflow: 8,597
  • Cape Coral, FL – Net Inflow: 7,015
  • San Diego, CA – Net Inflow: 6,804
  • North Port, FL – Net Inflow: 6,626
  • San Antonio, TX – Net Inflow: 5,335
  • Dallas, TX – Net Inflow: 4,964

“Tampa is still attracting a lot of out-of-state homebuyers, coming from places like New York, who can get more for their money in Florida,” said Redfin manager in Tampa, Eric Auciello.

As Brietbart notes:

Los Angeles is the top origin among new residents in four of the ten cities with the highest inflows.

While Chicago is the primary place of origin in two metro areas, New York City and San Francisco, as well as Austin, Texas, and Orlando, Florida, comprise the other four

The report includes data from two million Redfin users who viewed a minimum of 10 homes in a specific city or metro area. The particular locale comprised 80 percent of the user’s searches.

Crime and COVID restrictions

As The New York Post reported earlier this year’

Droves of Americans fled Democrat-run states with surging crime and COVID-19 restrictions last year, with New York, New Jersey and Connecticut among the five that suffered the steepest losses, a sobering new survey shows.

New Jersey led the nation with 70 percent of the people involved in moves fleeing the Garden State, compared to just 30 percent who migrated in, according to United Van Lines’ 45th Annual National Movers Study.

Illinois, home to crime- and shooting-ridden Chicago, came in second with 67 percent of the moves recorded were of residents leaving the state, while just 27 percent were in-bound.

New York ranked third, with 63 percent of movers headed for the exits and 37 percent settling in.

Nearly 30 percent those who fled the Empire State said “family” was a primary factor in their decisions.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
