Working from Home Part of “The New Normal”

By Lucas Smith | September 30, 2021

The last year has been a time of change for many new homes buyers.

The rise in remote work and the greater appetite to have dedicated space at home, as well as an opportunity cost if you’re getting your professional qualifications elsewhere than where they are currently located, means that some professionals will make better decisions about what kind or property suits them best this season based on how much money can be saved by avoiding unnecessary costs associated with renting out another office building vs purchasing one yourself!

The other thing we learned from our research into all these fascinating facts? Many people still think it’s temporary – which leads us nicely onto next point…

A survey by Upwork of 1,000 hiring managers found that due to the pandemic companies are planning more remote work now and in years ahead. The upsurge is also creating a demand for freelancers who specialize in this type of arrangement with employers as well as potential employees wanting experience working remotely without having face-to-face contact on site at all times

A recent study conducted by US based firm “UpWork” quizzed 1000+ company executives about their workforce plans over next five years – what did respondents say?

“The number of remote workers in the next five years is expected to be nearly double what it was before COVID-19: By 2025, 36.2 million Americans will be remote, an increase of 16.8 million people from pre-pandemic rates.”

Technology has made it easier than ever to work from home. With the remote workforce booming, there are plenty of opportunities for homeowners who want their own space but need flexibility in order make ends meet with an office-less lifestyle. As long as you have reliable internet access at your house and are happy living without any face time interaction other than voice calls on Skype or Zoom etc., then this can be good news!

One benefit that may come along is being able stay within commuting distance if they already live nearby which means less money spent each week towards gasoline alone – not even counting gas expenses during winter months when heating oil prices typically go up significantly compared what electricity costs were last year

If you’re one of the nearly 23% who will remain 100% remote: You have a great opportunity to save money and get closer than ever before with your work/life balance. If moving is not an option for some reason, consider looking into cheaper living areas that offer more amenities in order give yourself as much breathing room possible while still having access to all sorts of luxuries from home like pets or children; this way they can come visit during certain times without cutting into precious hours spent working!

If you’re one of the almost 15% who will have a partially remote or hybrid schedule:

If relocating within your local area to an urban home, far enough from any offices could be great choice. Since this isn’t going in every day and having longer commutes may seem like trade offs but there are features that come with living suburban sprawl such as more space for family activities on weekends while still being close by car access if needed readily available I would recommend looking into whether moving somewhere rural might suit better since they offer less amenities at first glance but offers peace-and quiet during certain times which can make all the difference.

The bottom line is that we will continue to see the needs and landscape of homeownership change as our opportunities and workplaces evolve.
