In a post-recession world, more and more people are starting to work from home, making the need for home office space a huge priority when it comes to buying a new home or condo in DFW. Last year, a Forbes article estimated around 30 million Americans work from a home office at least once per week, while a study from Telework Research Network projected that number will increase by roughly 63% over the next five years.
Enhanced video conferencing technology has been a major factor in the sudden influx of employees working from home, which allows companies to cut expenses on larger office spaces and employees to spend less time commuting, as well as less money on costly gasoline or public transportation.
Not everyone who works from home has a typical office or desk job that requires spending the entire day in front of a computer, however. Musicians, artists, and those in varying creative industries also require a roomy work-live space, mostly to use as storage for finished works, instruments, and various other equipment involved in whatever it is they do.
In most cases, single-family homes around the Dallas metroplex provide ample space to both live and work, regardless of the job, but what about those looking for a place in the city? Condos can sometimes be limited in how much extra space and storage is available, and single-family homes in downtown Dallas can get a little pricey, especially in many of the trendier, upscale neighborhoods.
So what’s the answer?
While the needs of every individual home buyer are different, many of today’s buyers are opting for spacious work-live lofts that boasts sprawling open layouts, more than enough space to both live and work, and of course a chic and fashionable interior that inspires and motivates residents when it’s time to settle in and actively try to get some work done.
