The impact of COVID-19 on the housing market this year is apparent with some of those changes here to stay. As companies and employees adjust to better ways of managing, many find their housing needs are shifting too. A few of these changes include needing more indoor space for a home office, and more outdoor space for recreation. That makes this a perfect time to consider a custom home in the Fraser Valley.
Rising Vancouver house prices and the high cost of living in the city are also factors. Custom homes in Abbotsford are increasingly an attractive and affordable option! As more people get set up to work from home, StatsCan notes the diminishing role of commuting as a consideration when it comes to purchasing a residential property. A recent housing market report from Remax shows: “32 per cent of Canadians no longer want to live in large urban centres, and instead would opt for rural or suburban communities.” Then, to deal with the shift in their work/life dynamic “44 per cent of Canadians would like a home with more space for personal amenities, such as a pool, balcony or a large yard.”
The trends are clear and continue to gain momentum. A custom home is the best way to get exactly what you want to balance the family’s needs with work needs in this new dynamic.
