The wealthy have transferred in droves to seasonal vacation markets around the US during the pandemic.
The Sun Belt and Rocky Mountains have experienced a substantial amount of demand, according to the 2021 Luxury Outlook report by Sothebys International Realty..

In Colorado, Aspen, Vail, and Telluride reported increasing house sales through the summer, and extraordinary need sent Aspen sales volume to a record high in the third quarter of 2020– an overall of more than $1.5 billion. One of Vails sales, a 15,000-square-foot estate that went for $57.25 million, set the record for greatest sale in regional history. In 2020, Colorado also emerged as the quarantine area of option for abundant Americans and milennials looking to get away the coasts.
Sales of million-dollar single-family homes in Palm Beach County, Florida, increased by more than 140% year over year, according to Sothebys, which reported high demand in a variety of Sunshine State areas from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando. Fueling that real-estate boom are executives and business leaving to South Florida from Wall Street and Silicon Valley.
