Why Home Buyers Have Their Eyes on the Suburbs in 2020
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are being urged to continue practicing safe social distancing and taking other precautions to curb the spread of the coronavirus. However, this is easier said than done when you live in a large city, where masses of people inevitably find themselves in close proximity to one another. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to practice social distancing when you and a dozen of your neighbors are all trying to get an elevator up to the 12th floor at the same time.
But in the suburbs, people are a bit more spread out. There is more room to breathe and sufficient space to follow safe social distancing. In short, there has never been a better time to consider buying a home in the suburbs.
Suburban homes offer more amenities than city apartments
City inhabitants often find themselves having to adapt to apartments that are small and cramped – yet still expensive! Apartment dwellers may find it extremely challenging to follow stay-at-home orders since there isn’t much room for a home office, let alone a home gym.
The solution is to buy a home in the suburbs, where you will have plenty of space to set up your ideal home office. You can even set up your dream gym, all in the comfort of your own home. Plus, you’ll be able to go out into the yard and enjoy the outdoors without inadvertently getting too close to your neighbors.
Suburbs are more affordable than city life
City living is unquestionably expensive. Housing costs far more, and so too do everyday expenses like groceries and auto insurance. Yes, auto insurance companies charge urban residents far more than their suburban counterparts—even if they have the same driving record and vehicle! In contrast, moving to the suburbs can save you a bundle over the years.
