Relocating for Remote Working
In the past, moving closer to work was a common choice. From shorter commutes to easier attendance at after-hours events, it was a smart option. That all changed due to COVID-19, as research shows 70% of employees began working remotely some or all of the time. As more employers warm to remote work, it’s becoming possible to maintain your current position and explore others across the country while living anywhere you prefer – including the beautiful Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington, areas. If you’re interested in relocating for remote work, Terrie Cox, RE/MAX Equity Group explains everything you need to know to make the move successful.
Relocation Doesn’t Have to Mean Great Distances
If you’re currently living in the Portland or Seattle metro areas, you can enjoy the benefits of relocation without making a cross-country move. Both regions are home to many welcoming communities that offer all the benefits of suburban or small-town living with easy proximity to urban centers. That way, it’s easy enough to visit the office once or twice a week, attend meetings, and access airports and other conveniences that may be required.
World-Ranked Broker Terrie Cox, RE/MAX Equity Group has extensive experience in these real estate markets, where she’s gained a keen insight into the area’s communities. If you’re eager to relocate from your current city but need to remain within the state or even an easy driving distance, she can recommend a community that offers the lifestyle and amenities you seek with the easy access to work your career demands.
Look for a Property that Meets Your Professional and Personal Needs
While many are eager to work from home for the foreseeable future, others chafe at the loss of boundaries between personal and professional life. It’s all too easy for busy professionals to put in extra hours and over-work when we work at home and, accordingly, live at work. Because of this, your relocation should take into account the kind of home amenities that will help balance productivity with comfort and relaxation.
Luxury properties are especially valued for the features that make these distinctions possible. For example, countless luxury apartment and townhome dwellers have chosen single-family homes to access more square footage and generous home office spaces. Working in a well-appointed home office with ample natural light rather than a crowded space hurriedly converted for remote work can make a significant difference in your productivity and overall happiness.
Luxury homes also provide a retreat from the cares of the day after work is done. With more indoor and outdoor space plus amenities designed for relaxation and family fun, you’ll be well-prepared to make the most of your relocation and your downtime.
Work with a Relocation Expert
Not all real estate Brokers are experienced in relocations. They may understand a highly centralized market but fail to deliver what you need to make a successful move. Relocating remote workers need Brokers with intimate knowledge of a broad region and insight into local markets to maximize their investment and make the experience seamless.
