Don't try to hide it any longer, St. Louis: You secretly like Chicago.
Real estate website Redfin published a study Monday examining U.S. migration. The study looked at where Redfin's home hunters in this year's first quarter were looking to move, as well as where the users were located — based entirely on their search activity. And since this is based on anonymous internet activity rather than self-reported, you could think of it as a little window into our secret longings.And yes, we have longings. Of one million site users examined, nearly one in five looked for houses outside their own metro area. And with the help of Redfin's handy-dandy interactive map (located about halfway down this page), you can see where St. Louisans are largely looking to move.
