I’ve been thinking about this, since my personal observations don’t mesh with stereotypes I keep hearing. You may have in your mind that small towns are dying and a pretty flat market. That may be changing, though, as people get more and more tired of traffic and the frenetic pace of life in cities.
Another factor I’ve observed that encourage people to relocate to more rural locations is being able to work from home. I’m a prime example of that. While I’m in a big city during the week, I’m able to spend half my time in my rural home, thanks to having the option and needed infrastructure to work from outside the office when I want to. My friend Mike, who just moved to Cameron a few months ago, is in the same position. This setup requires access to GOOD internet connections, though, and that has slowed down a lot of people who want to live in a small town our rural spot. Finally it’s becoming a priority for service providers, though, as they realize not everyone out in the boonies lives in a cabin with dirt floors and no electricity.Hermann says please like and share!
