As housing needs change, homes adapting

The COVID-19 Era has changed how families look at their living spaces.

With parents having to work from home and kids attending school online, the need for adequate, dedicated space has never been greater.

The home now must be dynamic enough to sustain each family member’s needs in the living, entertaining, working, and educational categories.

Before COVID, a family of four could be happy in a three-bedroom home, but today might need a den and even additional “flex” space.

Instead of that three-bedroom home, they’re expanding their search to include additional bonus rooms, some now potentially looking at a five-bedroom home to accommodate their working and schooling needs.

An expert Realtor can position your home for optimal buyer demand, illustrating to prospective buyers how to best use your living space.

Additionally, with the disappearance of organized youth sports, school gyms, parks, and other outdoor amenities, more and more families want the accommodating backyard paradise, especially those featuring pools, spas, outdoor kitchens, pizza ovens, fire pits and space.

Families need an escape, and their backyards are quickly becoming the designation as travel and entertainment remain less conventional.

If you have a home to sell, your home may be just what these buyers are looking for. If you’re a homebuyer, you need an expert Realtor to unlock inventory you won’t find elsewhere.

Knowing the needs of both today’s buyers and sellers are Carol Royse’s specialty. For more information on home values in the area, call her at 480-776-5231 and ask about her “Trade-Up” program.
