Why Home Office Space Is More Desirable Than Ever

For years, we’ve all heard about the most desirable home features buyers are looking for, like upgraded kitchens to remodeled bathrooms, master suites, and more. The latest on the hot-list, however, might surprise you: home offices.

As more companies have been embracing remote work, buyers are driving up demand for houses with designated space for home offices. According to realtor.comhomes featuring the term ‘office’ are selling 9 days faster than the overall housing inventory.
Today, more and more people work remotely. While this trend precedes the current pandemic, the expansion of this reality carries implications for the housing market. According to the same piece and the most recent data available, the number of employees working at home was fairly steady from 1997 – 2004 but has been climbing ever since.
Clearly, the work-from-home population is growing due to expanding use of technology.


With today’s increasing demand for home offices, highlighting this feature matters. What makes your home office space shine? Whether your space offers bright natural light with large windows with built-in bookshelves or a quiet, secluded atmosphere is worth mentioning to buyers when you’re ready to list your house.
For housing, the continued increase in the share of remote workers implies that demand for homes with offices or dedicated work spaces will continue to increase. The current coronavirus pandemic offers a dramatic indication of the fact that companies and employees will have to develop plans and clearer policies for remote work beyond the current crisis.
Remote work can only become more mainstream as this current crisis teaches businesses throughout the country what it takes to function virtually. With that in mind, if you have a home office, your house may be more desirable to buyers than you think.
