You have a weird concept of what rural means.
Kenneth Lynch

My apologies. Since you used an abstract concept for “gentrifying” in your prior comment I assumed it was understood that gentrification in rural areas is more often referred to as “urban sprawl”. Allow me to amend my prior response:

Also, nobody is interested in gentrifying in the sticks. The simple reasoning is that there is not enough financial potential in small rural towns as there are in larger cities.

False. Nobody is interested in gentrifying in the sticks because the dictionary definition of of “gentrification” precludes such a thing from happening. The definition of gentrification refers to the “renovation and revival of deteriorated urban neighborhoods”. There are no urban neighborhoods in “small rural towns”.
