Does Your House Have What Buyers Want?
The increase of remote employment is affecting what many Americans want in their homes. Many businesses are delaying reopening or going remote full-time, and today's buyers are searching for houses with extra room to accommodate their work demands.
If you, as a seller, no longer need the additional space in your house, know that there are buyers who do.
A recent poll from Garter, Inc. shows many organizations have not yet returned their offices. And it's not only businesses that are opting to stay remote for the time being; employees are looking for more flexibility as well. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers study, roughly one-fifth of workers desire to be completely remote in the future. According to the report, many individuals are leaving their employment to pursue remote work alternatives.
As a result, today's buyers prioritize choosing houses with extra room so they may work from home comfortably. According to the American Institute of Architects' 2021 Home Design Trends Survey, 69 percent of those surveyed still desire at least one workspace at home. It also indicates that more individuals are seeking multiple spaces in their houses for remote work and virtual meetings.
As the popularity of remote work grows, more buyers are searching for houses that can accommodate numerous home offices. If you have extra room you’re no longer using, consider selling.
