Let’s face it. Our homes are working in overdrive trying to keep up with our current demands. Serving as an office, school, daycare, gym and not to mention the everyday hustle and bustle of a home!
It’s no wonder a lot of city centres have seen homeowners make the shift from condominium ownership to the spatial allure of suburbia. Some Real Estate trends emerging from COVID- 19 include:
- Multi-functional spaces: Buyers want space! A dedicated home office (or two), abundance of natural light and a dedicated backdrop for their Zoom sessions.
- Outdoor Luxury: Homeowners are investing in their own backyards with the addition of pools, outdoor kitchens, televisions and rustic fireplaces.
- Suburbia awaits: Buyers are cutting ties with the cities where they work for more privacy and space offered in the suburbs.
- Second home, Primary destination: Many cottage owners are adding upgrades to their second homes to serve as their primary residence. Those who didn’t own a second home before the pandemic are looking to buy one now.
The need for space is at an all time high! Choosing the right suburb to support your lifestyle is a crucial part of making that shift. Let’s chat about your Real Estate needs. We are here to help!
