Working Remotely – Ready to Move?

Many of us have found ourselves working from home lately. For some, it may look to become a permanent situation, and you may have been entertaining the idea of moving. After all, if you don’t have to be tethered to your office, maybe you can relocate someplace where you can also relax and enjoy the outdoors.
Scope out Some Areas
A recent study by Pew Research shows that more than a fifth of US residents have changed their choice of homestead or know someone who has since the COVID pandemic changed their work/home life balance. According to a recent CBS report 4 in 10 urbanites were looking to live in more rural areas, exploring areas that have something more leisurely to offer, or seeking a more economical choice.
Checking Your Budget
You will want to research the cost of living in the area and part of that includes housing costs. The mortgage rate for a 30-year fixed loan is 3.01%, as of September 2020, according to Bankrate. Search for places with low taxes and an average housing cost under $100 per square foot. You should also check for those securities that will make your new life more accessible. Plenty of opportunities to put in a full days’ work and still have time to enjoy the good life. Explore options that provide plenty of amenities, like Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.
