Space is now needed more than ever for home offices, gyms, relaxing and having fun while staying safe with the inner circle of people that matter most. Guest spaces for quarantining, such as finished basements, mother-in-law suites, and backyard guest houses are becoming hot commodities. With all that extra time at home, what used to be considered extras are now essential – huge patios, bonus rooms, fire pits, outdoor kitchens and even movie rooms all pull their weight in adding re-sale and livability value.
Even millennials recognize that their more nomadic concept of housing no longer serves them and the desire to purchase a home is manifesting like never before. We are also seeing those with means think more about conveniently-located second homes, like a hideaway on the coast or a cabin nestled in the Cascades. Does this ring true for you? The only future certainty is change, and it seems like it’s coming faster than ever before.
