Now that life and work revolve around home, people are, surprisingly, on the move. Many in high-rise apartments no longer enjoy riding an elevator with strangers, and are looking for private homes. Those with private homes in the city may be looking to move out to less-populated areas or to finally invest in a country escape. Others, now working from home and with children in the house all day, are looking for a little more space. "People are not spending money on entertainment or travel," says Steve S., whose business stages homes for resale and prefers not to be identified fully for business reasons. "They think, 'I'm going to upgrade to a home office.'" Here's who isn't in the market these days: International buyers, and domestic travelers looking for a pied-a-terre in the city.
