HousingIQ Survey: Homebuyers from the West and Northeast find Kentucky an attractive destination

Massachusetts – November 17, 2020 – Nearly 2 out of 5 REALTORS® say there is greater interest from out-of-state buyers, according to an analysis of the October 2020 edition of the HousingIQ Survey of Kentucky REALTORS®. Homebuyers from the West and Northeast represent the largest group.

“The Bluegrass state’s lower cost-of-living, comparatively more affordable housing, and convenient location to Cincinnati, OH, Nashville, TN, and St. Louis, MO likely make it an attractive destination as working remotely becomes more widespread”, explained Vidur Dhanda, author of the survey.
