The Importance of HOMEPosted Monday, January 18, 2021
As you reflect on this past year, it’s hard not to think of the difficulties that 2020 presented. Life in 2020 was far from normalcy. Restaurants closed, businesses shut down, schools went remote, and people lost jobs. What started as fear at the beginning of the pandemic turned to an eagerness to get back to the way things were. Kids going back to school, people going to events, couples celebrating date night, or family hosting large gatherings. We all hope that 2021 will be a better year, that we can get back to some normalcy but if there is one thing this pandemic has taught us, it’s the importance of our homes and the people who fill them.
Though 2020 is in the rearview, we are still living in uncertain times with limitations on many aspects of our lives that have truly transformed the work-life balance. Throughout this continued pandemic, your home has become more than just a home. It’s become your office, your school, your date night, and even your staycation. This “new norm” of home-living has motivated many families to re-assess their home and space needs. People living in apartments, condominiums, or townhomes are now looking for single-family homes, and families in single-family homes are now looking for more space. The shift in first time home buyers looking for more spacious properties caused a boom in the 2020 home buying market despite everything that happened throughout the year.
If you and your spouse are currently having a hard time sharing an “office” space (family room) along with your child playing or e-learning in the same room, it may be time to consider looking for single-family homes with more space. We understand it can be stressful as a first-time home buyer, and that's why the experts at The Sharon Falco Group are here to help! Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a home buying veteran, we can assist with all your home buying or selling needs.
