The Work from Home Trend: how Aussie homes are changing

The work from home phenomenon created by the Covid pandemic has required a rethink of the use of our private spaces.

According to McCrindle Research, the most significant advantages of working from home is flexibility and work-life balance. However, there are logistical difficulties with working from home for extended periods. Ask any parent of small children how difficult it is to work from home in a suitable quiet place!

According to a research paper from ANZ and statistics from HIA Economics, Australian property buyers are more likely to buy a home with an office or study nook. Since the start of the Covid pandemic, builders have reported a change in home-buying preferences: buyers have an increased appreciation for more space at home. Almost half of the builders surveyed say they have seen an increase in buyers’ interest in a designated office space.

Not that the home office is a new concept…

…instead of a study being the domain of large country manors, new home offices are a flexible, multifunctional space.

What do you need to include in a home office? 

At Triple Zero Property, we have responded to these changes in the way Aussies use their homes in liaison with our panel of builders to now include: 

  • A separate room away from the living area perfect for a designated home office (often at the front of the home)
  • Large windows for a light-filled office
  • USB ports and ethernet ports
  • Additional electrical sockets
  • Premium connectivity to the NBN

The work from home trend is likely to continue, and homeowners and renters are demanding light-filled, Wi-Fi connected, multi-purpose spaces that can be used for a home office.
