Hi Friends,

 

 

One defining feature of this year’s housing market has been the “at home” revolution.

Staying at home. Learning at home. Working at home.

Life these days is lived “at home,” for better or worse.

In a new survey from LendingTree, nearly half of respondents said they now work from home. Yet only 42% of that group work in a dedicated office space.

Of the rest, 19% work in a living room, 18% in a bedroom, and — skipping down the list — at least 2% work outside. (Nothing like fresh air, I guess!) Men were more likely than women to use a dedicated office, at 48 to 30% respectively.

Consequently, it’s no surprise that over a quarter of likely movers place features like office space at the top of their list of must-haves in their new home.

Now more than ever, an extra room works wonders for the mind, body and soul (and productivity). A bigger, better kitchen can liven dull weekday dinners. A more spacious yard offers pleasant afternoons, not cooped up inside.

With mortgage rates still below 3%, it remains a uniquely good time to buy, sell, or buy and sell a home. Now’s the time to consider your options.

As always, if you have questions about the market, or if you or someone you know is thinking of making a change, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We’re happy to help!

We hope everyone has a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!

Talk soon,

Mark & Pete Caspersen

Fall Real Estate Market in San Diego Remains Strong

According to SD News, the real estate market will remain strong in San Diego this season due to many factors – one being that people are in search of homes with more exterior and interior space considering the increased amount of time spent in their homes.

Other factors may be due to the reduced buying during the spring and early summer, as well as the extremely low interest rates available.
