Here’s how an increase in remote work is affecting homebuyer trends.
Remote work has changed our housing landscape. Has it changed yours? Pre-pandemic, only 21% of American workers could work from home. Now, experts are saying as much as 37.5% of all workers will have the opportunity to work remotely within the next five years. Remote work is not going away.
Some people are taking advantage of this fact by moving their families to locations in which they’ve always wanted to vacation. If you’re part of that completely remote group, what difference does it make where you live?
If you’re working in a hybrid scenario where you’re commuting a few times per week, that changes your options as well.
Whether you’re considering moving to a different area of the Metroplex, maybe want to move a little further out, or you want to move somewhere more urban, now may be an excellent time to take advantage of this market.
Last week, we talked about why it’s still a great time to buy in this market despite rising prices. If remote work has impacted your decision-making criteria, now might be the time to consider a change.
As always, it starts with a conversation. If you have any questions or if there’s anything I can do for you and your family, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
