What are zoom towns?
We’ve all heard of boomtowns, but what are zoom towns? Zoom towns are places that urban folks are fleeing to in order to work remotely and live a simpler life. They’re called zoom towns as a nod to the popular video conferencing platform, which allows so many of these “refugees” to work remotely.
Because of the zoom town phenomenon, places in the country that for decades have been viewed by urban folks as “flyover country” are now some of the hottest real estate markets in the nation. Places like Idaho, Montana, Utah, Colorado, etc. In short, if you have real estate in the intermountain west, then your real estate value is on the up-and-up. There is a shortage of inventory in the real estate market, and if you’re lucky enough to have a piece of property in this market, buyers are willing to pay top dollar (and then some) for it!
