Over the past year, the percentage of people working from home soared to new heights and has had a huge impact on what buyers are looking for in their next purchase. Many employees without a dedicated home office got creative to make the space they already had work for them, but research suggests that the remote trend is not going away anytime soon. A recent CNN article quoted prominent economists as saying, “Job ads increasingly offer remote work and surveys indicate that both workers and employers expect work from home to remain much more common than before the pandemic.”
If you’re one of the almost 23% of workers who will stay 100% remote, it’s only natural to ask yourself if your current space fits the bill when it comes to working from home. You have more flexibility when it comes to where you can live if you’re not tied down to a specific area for your job, and now may be the perfect time to make the leap and move to your dream location — whether that’s near the beach, the desert, or a new master-planned community.
If you’re one of the nearly 15% of people who have a partially remote or hybrid schedule, relocating to a new home within your current local area could be a great option for you. You may have a slightly longer commute, but since you won’t be driving to the office every day, that is a small price to pay for an upgraded home offering more space and amenities or in a better neighborhood.
