Northeasterners have long migrated south to luxurious Palm Beach in search of a relaxing and revitalizing getaway – whether that be a long weekend, a few months, or permanently. A remarkable quality of life combined with superior security, natural beauty, and countless cultural attractions all add to its timeless charm. Yet according to a recent article in Page Six, the coronavirus pandemic is the latest catalyst inspiring people to escape to Palm Beach.
Over the past few months, New York has unfortunately become one of the nation’s leading epicenters of Covid-19. Residents of Manhattan and its surrounding communities have been fleeing the region in an attempt to circumvent the contagion. For the upper echelon, Palm Beach has become the preferred retreat.
“The vast majority of Palm Beach buyers come from the Northeast [and] the greater New York area, thus [it’s] no surprise Covid-19 has the Palm Beach market very active,” says Suzanne Frisbie of Frisbie Palm Beach. This rings especially true for house-hunters who have school-age children and/or those who find themselves in an “at risk” age group for the virus.
Wherever you call home, if you’re considering making Palm Beach your protective retreat, Frisbie Palm Beach currently offers a diverse collection of desirable listings and rentals available to purchase or lease:
