As We Celebrate 4th July Let’s Explore The Changing American Dream
Thursday Jul 01, 2021

The 4th of July often gives us a chance to reflect on how far our country has come since we became an independent nation. It also allows us to celebrate the things that make us American. One of those things is the ability to dream and to accomplish those dreams. We often hear about 'The American Dream' and while this doesn’t necessarily refer to one specific thing, for many Americans it either means owning your own home or business. Over the last year and a half, we’ve noticed a resurgence of this dream of homeownership and we think it has a lot to do with the pandemic. 

At the height of the pandemic, many companies adopted a work from home policy. With more time at home, many Americans began to yearn for the quiet, comfort and spaciousness of the suburbs. According to this article, of the 10 largest cities in America, eight registered lower growth in 2019-20 than in 2018-19; six displayed their lowest growth in the last decade; and five lost population. The latter include New York, Los Angeles, and San Jose, Calif., as well as Philadelphia and Chicago. Here at Advance Relocation Systems, we have been privy to this change, having seen an exodus of persons from large cities like New York and San Francisco to more suburban and rural communities during the pandemic. 

Now that we are in a phase of recovery from the pandemic, the drive to leave the cities has slowed. Nevertheless, Advance Relocations Systems stands ready to assist both residential and commercial clients as they navigate and assess their needs during this period of pandemic recovery, whether that means moving out of or into the cities. As an Atlas Van Lines agent, we are capable of moving anyone from anywhere in the United States to any other part of the United States or outside of the US.
