Remote Work Has Changed Our Home Needs. Is It Time for Your Home To Change, Too?

Sharing this article from Keeping Current Matters.

Over the past year, many homeowners realized what they need in a home is changing, especially with the rise in remote work. If you’re longing for a dedicated home office or a change in scenery, now may be the time to find the home that addresses your evolving needs.

Working from Home Isn’t a Passing Fad

Before the pandemic, only 21% of individuals worked from home. However, if you’ve recently discovered remote work is your new normal, you’re not alone.

Remote Work Has Changed Our Home Needs. Is It Time for Your Home To Change, Too? | Keeping Current Matters

survey of hiring managers conducted by Statista and Upwork projects 37.5% of U.S. workers will work remotely in some capacity over the next 5 years (see chart below):

Working from Home Gives You More Flexibility and More Options

If you fall in that category, working from home may provide you with opportunities you didn’t realize you had. The ongoing rise in remote work means a portion of the workforce no longer needs to be tied to a specific area for their job. Instead, it gives those workers more flexibility when it comes to where they can live.

If you’re one of the nearly 23% of workers who will remain 100% remote, you have the option to move to a lower cost-of-living area or to the location of your dreams. If you search for a home in a more affordable area, you’ll be able to get more house for your money, freeing up more options for your dedicated office space and more breathing room. You could also move to an area you’ve always dreamed of vacationing in – somewhere near the beach, the mountains, or simply an area that features better weather and community amenities. Without your job tying you to a specific location, you’re bound to find your ideal spot.

If you’re one of the almost 15% of individuals who will have a partially remote or hybrid schedule, relocating within your local area to a home that’s further away from your office could be a great choice. Since you won’t be going into work every day, a slightly longer commute from a more suburban or rural area could be a worthy trade-off for a home with more features, space, or comforts. After all, if you’ll still be at home part-time, why not find a home that better suits your needs?

According to the latest Top Ten Issues Affecting Real Estate from The Counselors of Real Estate (CRE), many homebuyers are already taking advantage of their newfound flexibility:

“. . . after years of apparent but variant trends towards urbanization, the pandemic universally caused a movement away from urban cores, particularly for those with higher incomes who could afford to move and for lower-income individuals seeking lower costs of living.”

Bottom Line

If you’ve found what you’re looking for in a home has changed due to remote work, it may be time to make a move. Talk to your local real estate advisor today to start prioritizing your home needs.

Helping Our Clients Find Their Way Home – James & Beline

When I met James and Beline I was taken by their thoroughness. In fact, I appreciated it. How a client goes about buying has everything to do with their success. James and Beline had their budget and goals and were able to adjust what they thought their first home would look like into what their first home could be.

Having one crazy bidding war for a condo in San Carlos under their belt, James and Beline understood the competitiveness of the market and where their possibilities were strongest. When a townhome in San Mateo came on the market – we all knew the opportunity before us. With no offer date, we knew we had to act fast – then with another offer coming – even faster.

But that’s never a panic for our buying clients – before we see a home we ensure our clients’ loan is underwritten so they can act fast and with confidence. This step – makes all the difference.

With no red flags in the disclosures – we wrote a clean and competitive offer. As we always say – what will be, will be and it worked out – San Mateo is their new residence.

It was a joy to guide James and Beline through their first home purchase – even mid-pandemic. Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

If you’re considering a sale or purchase of Real Estate in the Bay Area – you need a full-time, professional Realtor to guide you. The Caton Team would love to interview for the job as your Realtor Team – please reach out at your convenience.

Thank you for your trust navigating this crazy Covid market. I’m so grateful you trusted me and I trusted my gut. We could not have done this without a fantastic seller team – so thank you Tabre of Compass as well. It was a joy to work with you and so much fun becoming friends!
