Home Buying Has Changed During the Pandemicenrique@dbmmail.com
Recent events have led many of us to reconsider our living situation and the way we interact with other people. When it comes to real estate, potential homebuyers are starting to look for different features and amenities when buying a home. As Frederick County’s fastest-selling new home community, Landsdale has seen a lot of homebuyers in the past few months. The following details some of the biggest changes we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic.
Homebuyers Leaving Densely Populated Areas
Social distancing and state mandates have left many of us wanting to move out of densely populated areas in favor of suburban communities with amenities. These new home communities like Landsdale Frederick, offer a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life. Everything you need is located close to home, eliminating the need to venture out into busy urban areas.
People Thinking More About How They Want to Live
Over the past few months, we’ve all had a lot of time to think. For many, this has led to a realization of the importance of living life to its fullest. People everywhere are starting to consider moving to a more functional space that offers an escape from the COVID experience. New home communities like Landsdale, offer large homes, gorgeous views, and home designs that fit what families actually want and need.
Families Looking at Larger Homes
Being confined inside forces you to take a closer look at your living space. During quarantine, families all over the United States have realized that their current home doesn’t fit their family’s needs 100% of the time. Maybe it’s missing a home office, room for the kids to work independently, or space for the kids to play. Perhaps you’re considering upgrading your appliances, the technology in your home, or its floor plan. Whatever the case, families everywhere are starting to look at larger homes with more features and amenities.
Less Focus on Commute
In the past, potential homebuyers tended to look for new home communities located close to work. This makes sense when you consider the amount of time most people spend commuting to and from the office. However, this has changed in recent months. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, most people have switched to working remotely, making it possible for them to complete tasks and work from any location in the world.
Since March, many organizations have realized the cost saving benefits of having employees work from home. In fact, many businesses have decided to keep staff working remotely, opening up new possibilities for those looking to purchase a home.
The current health crises has changed the criteria homebuyers look for when buying a home. Although the pandemic won’t last forever, these changes will likely stick around. If you’re considering moving, we strongly recommend looking for a new home community that offers everything you want and need.
