How Working From Home Changed Real Estate

How Working From Home Changed Real Estate

The work environment is changing and with it, so is our home life! Reliable and comfortable office spaces are becoming an important addition to new construction homes in Florida. Because let’s face it, none of us want to spend months or years working from our laptop in the kitchen.

If you are planning to move into a new home, make sure you have your at-home office needs in mind. Here are our top tips for finding the best house and neighborhood for your work-from-home lifestyle.

Plenty of Space for A Home Office

If you are looking for new construction homes in Florida, make sure your potential new home checks all the boxes of home office needs!

Look for homes that come with a dedicated office space or a den. It will make things easier than using a guest room that could be used later for when you have family or friends over. There are many new homes built with a free room that could be used for multiple purposes including a home office.

Access To Reliable Internet

Make sure your new house meets your technological needs. You shouldn’t have to deal with spotty video conference calls or be slowed down by the speed of your internet. Every home in Babcock Ranch is outfitted with 1 GIG of fiber optic service. This allows our residents to have one of the fastest internet services in the state.

You will also want to ask your builder about hardwired internet for the strongest, consistent connectivity and USB charging outlets to create a clutter-free workspace.

Access To Collaborative Environments

When you work from home you can lose out on connections with coworkers and in-person interactions. That’s why having a coworking space close to home can be so beneficial.

Whether you are looking for a spot to regularly connect with other business professionals or just looking for an occasional day away from your home office, coworking spaces can be a great place to grow your business and inspire new ideas.

At Babcock Ranch, we have The Hatchery, a coworking space that offers high-speed internet, conference space, exclusive networking opportunities, and access to printing, scanning, and copying services.
