When working remotely you can choose to live in any location your heart desires.
Why wait until retirement to relocate to your dream location in Delaware?
If you can work remotely, does it have to be in your current home?
Even in retirement, most Baby Boomers want a home office, so the best builders here in Delaware have long included a home office in their home plans. Some call it a “flex room” or a study but the potential uses are varied.
What’s the best location in your home for the office?
Most popular is just off the foyer, near the front door. Other floorplans show an extension off the master bedroom which can be used as a sitting room or a home office. For years, bedroom #3 has served primarily as a home office for semi-retirees. Whether still working or retired, we all have computers, printers and more.
Planning to Sell?
On Realtor.com, the #2 recommendation to anyone getting ready to sell is to “Create a functional home office or classroom.”
Many workers aren’t heading back to the office until 2021 or even later, which means home office space is at a premium, along with space for kids to log in to their virtual classrooms.
“People need a dedicated space for multiple people to be able to be on calls at the same time,” says Walker, who currently works at home alongside his wife, and his kids attending school virtually. “It definitely creates challenges when we all need to be on calls and need space to work.
Even if you don’t need two home offices or a remote learning station for your own family, consider staging your home to show the possibilities for buyers.
“Staging a guest bedroom as a home office or classroom is a good idea,” Walker says. “The potential buyer can see the room being used in a versatile way and visualize it for themselves.” By Lauren Sieben | Sep 24, 2020
