Today, many people are working remotely, but this isn’t just a condition of the current pandemic. It is a trend that is growing because people are choosing a better quality of life over congested city living.
When the pandemic began, we saw a huge migration of people moving from large cities into resort communities. The real estate aggregator, Redfin recently published an article about how the coronavirus has driven New Yorkers and San Franciscans to greener pastures. In 2020, listings were receiving multiple offers and selling for over 10-15% of asking price.
Popular resort towns like Cape Cod, Jersey Shore, Bend, Oregon and Lake Tahoe saw a huge reduction in available inventory as the buyer demand overwhelmed the amount of homes for sale. International vacation destinations in Portugal, Bulgaria, Mexico, South America and Asia will receive the overflow of this demand once people realize how easy it is to migrate internationally.
Emily Bron, of International Lifestyle Consultants, has been helping people fulfill this dream through the careful curation of information about living and working in international destinations. When people are asked about the biggest benefits of becoming a remote worker, studies demonstrate that flexibility and freedom are key.
