Crime Wave: 50% of Homeowners Who Moved Recently Cite Crime as Reason

Half of all homeowners who moved since the pandemic began said that crime and safety were important factors in determining where they moved, according to a new report from Redfin (redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. This includes all those who said it factored “a lot” or was the “most important factor” in their decision.

“There are plenty of positive reasons to make a move, but sometimes people move to flee a place where they felt unsafe,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “Concerns with crime, especially among homeowners, contributed to a recent increase in migration out of cities and into more suburban and rural areas. Cities historically have been able to attract residents looking for high-paying jobs, but now that remote work is ubiquitous, some may have to work on improving safety and other quality of life factors to retain and attract residents. This might be an uphill battle, because as wealthy residents leave, they take tax dollars with them, leaving cities with less resources to address safety concerns for remaining residents.”

The FBI released 2020 figures showing a whopping 29.4% increase in murder and non-negligent homicide over the 2019 figures and victims of property crime experienced losses estimated at $17.5 billion.

The left’s “defund the police” movement, combined with policies that protect criminals and make law enforcement jobs impossible, the mass exodus from blue states is easy to understand.

  1. So, if I’m understanding this right, you people who screamed to defund the police and severely limit their ability to interfere when a crime is being committed are upset about the increase in crime and its effect on your quality of life. Is that pretty much it. Well, yur momma din’t raise no fools, did she.? Well, maybe just one or two. In your wildest imagination, what did you think was going to happen? So you’re moving to someplace safer, where there more police around to stabilize things and crime is less. Well I’ll be darned, how many idiots do we have in this country? What did you think would happen when you ran the police out of town? When I see a man or woman dressed in blue with a badge and a sidearm who is sworn to protect and serve me, I APPRECIATE THEM AND TELL THEM I DO.

  2. America! Don’t let any liberals move into your cities, neighborhoods, or anywhere else.

    They’ll just bring the same mentality with them that made where they came from a cesspool.
