"Why Do I Live Here?"
It's the question on many people's minds, almost as profound as asking the meaning of life: "If I can work from home and live anywhere, do I want to stay here?" In a way, it IS the meaning of life, like choosing your place in the world.
"Here" could be a variety of places, from the city to the suburbs. One thing our national pandemic and times of quarantine have shown many of us is the true importance of place. And if you have the luxury of working from home, your world is opening wider.
Isolating in place was/is still a challenge no matter where you are, but the options to have a yard, or take a walk on the beach or in a wooded state park, are amazing benefits for health and wellness.
And this concept is definitely catching on.
A recent Wall Street Journal Article, "When Workers Can Live Anywhere, Many Ask: Why Do I Live Here?" highlights the trend we have been seeing locally. The Coastal Delaware real estate market is thriving. We published our Summer Newsletter (which discusses this trend of people realizing where they'd want to spend more time at home) and only a handful of the featured Lewes homes are still available. We continue to list new homes, and many are going just as quickly - some with multiple offers immediately.
During this time of reflection and reprioritization, we at The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group are happy to help answer any questions you may have about our local real estate market. Prime bay and beachfront properties can be hard to come by - and they are definitely the more expensive options - however, our local towns have a vast array of price ranges. Our area has fewer apartments and condos than some more densely populated areas, which often grants homeowners more space and community amenities.
And there's always the remarkably peaceful stretches of beaches and nature preserves for a welcome kind of social distance.
Certainly, the ability to work from home is a luxury not all of us have. But if you are fortunate enough to have that flexibility, and when you ask yourself "Where would I really want to live?" and answer "the beach," give us a call!
