It is no secret that the Covid-19 pandemic forced an inevitable shift in how we do business. An agile online solution was adopted across the country allowing people to work from the comfort of their own homes.

This opportunity has allowed people to move back to native towns as well as choose a town of comfort and preference, emerging this new type of migration called ‘semigration’.

The pros and cons of semigrating need to be considered before taking on this adaption. Schooling your children might become a compulsory task forcing you to have to discern between being a parent, teacher and staff member simultaneously.

Who is semigrating?

  • People who are looking to retire early, predominantly aged between 50 – 70 years.
  • Young families with small children looking that are looking for a relaxed lifestyle in a new city.
  • Professionals who can work remotely that are looking for a better work from home approach.

On the upside, the interest rate is at a low, making it the ideal time for you to hand pick your ideal home and town at the most affordable rate to date.
