For many, commute times have been dramatically reduced over the last year. This is a welcome change for some, as studies show that those with a commute are more stressed and have lower job satisfaction. COVID-19 concerns have pushed employers to encourage any non-essential employees to work from home and it looks like this trend will continue. In addition to gaining those extra minutes every day, you have probably noticed an added flexibility as well. Many employers are now thinking about allowing employees to work from home on a permanent basis. This can be a win/win for your employer and yourself. Without a commute, you are able to consider relocating to another local area or even making a more significant move.
Do you Need to Live where you Work?
Many people make decisions about where they live based on their jobs. This makes sense for those who are driving to and from work each day. No one wants to add a longer commute time to an already long workday. However, once the option of working from home is a reality, you have much more leeway about exactly where you live. Maybe you want to live in a neighborhood with sidewalks and children, maybe you want to move to a more rural area so that you can have more land. Whatever your preference, the flexibility to work from home frees you from your daily commute and provides you with an exciting opportunity for moving. You can decide where you want to live based on your personal preferences, finances, and family needs, rather than on your job.
