Work-From-Home (WFH) Disrupts Boston Real Estate & Creates Demand for Large Custom Homes Outside Boston


Work-from-home (WFH) flexibility changes so much for those who once worked in Boston five days a week and fundamentally alters the real estate market both inside and outside the city of Boston.

How Working From Home (WFH) Has Changed Where Massachusetts Residents Live. HINT: Outside Boston! 

Homes outside Boston, along with homes in rural areas of Massachusetts, are in high demand.  Quality of life for many, especially those who formerly commuted to work in and around Boston for literally hours per day, is far better.

Living in Western MA or even on Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard, yet working for a Boston-based company, is now a convenient reality many enjoy.

While the Boston WFH movement will increase home prices in real estate markets outside Boston, your home-buying dollar will still go farther in markets outside Boston - and many who paid a premium to live in Boston because there was a need to do so can take that large housing allowance and make it go further with large custom homes outside Boston.

Boston Real Estate Market to Remain Strong


While Work-From-Home (WFH) for Boston workers will bolster demand for housing outside Boston and its neighboring cities, make no mistake, the Boston real estate market will remain strong.

This is not a zero-sum game whereby we will see a crash in the Boston residential real estate market, but rather, Boston WFH will raise the tide of other markets in Massachusetts outside Boston where residents will now be able to conveniently live.

The impact of WFH on commercial office real estate in Boston will not fully be seen for years beyond 2020-2021 as businesses are often locked into longer term lease arrangements that are made intentionally difficult to alter.
