We'd like to know how your housing needs have changed recently and what you plan on doing about it. The lifestyles of many many people have been altered significantly by pandemic rules. The home you own may not be as accommodating as it once was - its size, layout and location may no longer "fit."

Think about how the the Covid-19 pandemic has changed your idea of a functional home. For example, are you struggling with school aged kids and find yourself needing extra room for your suddenly always-at-home family? Are you trying to figure out a place to home-school the kids in your existing home?

Have you discovered that working from home is more productive than you thought? Can a different home setup allow you to somehow keep your full-time job and avoid the daily commute? According to some, the top two reasons for buying are the desire for better technology, and for more rooms. What many are actually saying is, ‘What I have to do to work from home has just changed, and I can’t retro my house.’

Are you an urban dweller who would like to escape the oppressive "closeness" of city life, maybe temporarily, maybe permanently? As you have now practiced at working from home, do you seek more social-distancing space?

And what about the future? If this is just the first wave of infections, what are your plans if a second wave hits and you are once again quarantined at home?

What we've learned so far.
Based on feedback from readers, we have been able to make some observations which lead us to practical advice for Hudson Valley home owners. For example, whereas buyers wanted open floor plans before, now they want things like his and her Zoom rooms for video-conference meetings. Before selling, don’t make any upgrades that don’t add square footage, unless it’s the kitchen. Other tips have stayed the same. Paint using neutral colors, and make sure the front yard is tidied-up for that all-important first curbside glimpse.

So what has changed in your life and how has it changed your idea of the ideal home? We'd love to hear from you. Send your comments to us HERE. All responses will be kept confidential and no solicitors will call.
