Your Neighbor in Real Estate: Advertise the Office If you Have One

Advertise the Office If you Have One

RiverPark CondosAdvertise the Office If you Have One

According to several different surveys, future homeowners will be looking to buy homes that are either closer to work or they want to work from home.

The high cost of gasoline and long commute times are two reasons fueling this change.

The 'closer to work' group are not averse to urban living where the 'live/work' communities are gaining a strong foothold. These are comprised of living areas located above a 'store' type unit that exists below. It may also include communities where a retail center is located within walking distance of the home/living community.

Having restaurants, movie theaters and shopping within walking distatnce is also very appealing to these future buyers.

The other preference articulated by the future homeowners is the ability to work from home. Ideally, a home/office was listed as the main choice. A home office, to be practical, should have enough space for a filing cabinet, desk and a su
RiverParkfficient number of electrical outlets to handle the office must haves. Will we still need the ubiquitous Copier/Fax combo or will the scanner be king?

Although just turning an extra bedroom into office space may be okay, a functional work space off the main area of the house is desirable.

We are fortunate in Oxnard to have a live/work community that is fairly new.

It is called RiverPark. Although there are units still available, you might want to check them out before they are all gone.

There are different builders and developers here and some communities are already sold out. For more information or for a private tour, please give me a call.

Living closer to where you work is becoming more and more important.

I think this time we have seen the last of cheap gas. Gone with the wind.

Great idea. It is nice working close to home because you can go home and have lunch instead of taking it to work and having someone steal it out of the refrigerator or you can save money by not having to go out to lunch

I imagine communities such as this will become more commonplace as folks opt to work from a home setting.

Hi Mike, they are a popular trend now.

One of my sons is a photographer and he would love to have a live/work setup as he often works late on a project and it would be wonderful not to have to drive home--just up the stairs would be fabulous for him.

It sounds ideal for him, Norma, and he is probably the right age like the many who are looking at these.  Hope you can find him one!
