Modern technology has given many of us the ability to work from almost anywhere. But while the technology that enables it has existed for a while now, remote work didn't become commonplace until the onset of the pandemic. Since then, according to recent Census data, the number of Americans who work from home has tripled. Naturally, the increased ability to work from home has had an effect on how and where we live. One new survey looked at remote work and moving patterns, and its findings aren't all that surprising. Simply put, remote and hybrid workers are more likely to move. In fact, while just 17 percent of on-site workers moved last year, 31 percent of hybrid workers – those who split time between an office and home – and 27 percent of remote workers did. This pattern began during the pandemic but it doesn't look like it'll fade in 2023. The survey found respondents who work remotely were also more likely to say they have a moved planned this year than participants who work fully on-site.
