Now that remote work has become more mainstream and Internet connectivity increasingly robust and far-reaching, more individuals and families are choosing to live and work in their dream locations and homes.
According to a study released by the National Association of Realtors, of the U.S. workers who worked from home during the pandemic, three in five prefer to continue to do so.
Lakefront Living International LLC founders, Scott Freerksen, Chief Executive Officer and Christine Mosier, Chief Operations Officer noted that the number of buyers and sellers of lakefront properties has drastically increased 22 percent over the past two years.
Freerksen explained, “We’re seeing a trend where more people are choosing to live in rural areas and on lakes. A big part of that can be attributed to better Internet connectivity, which enables people to work from home or work remotely from anywhere. Then, the pandemic itself changed mindsets. Now it’s less ‘live to work’ and more ‘work to live’. Many homeowners are figuring out what their dream location and home would be and making it happen.”
Lakefront Living International is a national real estate franchise company focused exclusively on the buying and selling of lakefront and lake community properties. Freerksen noted that lakefront second homes or vacation homes are quickly becoming full-time residences, particularly in areas with year-round temperate climate and access to high-quality amenities. Lakes have become an increasingly attractive destination for retirees as well as those working from home.
Second homes are becoming first homes. Mosier, who is based in Ohio gave an example, “Previously about 80 percent of lake homes in the Ohio were secondary homes, and now it is about 50 percent.”
Freerksen continued, “Now, more buyers are seeking the lake lifestyle, are pulling up roots and purchasing their first lakefront homes. Alongside that, seasoned owners of second/vacation lakefront homes are selling their primary residences elsewhere to live lakefront full-time. Not only do they financially gain by having a single residence; they live in their dream home year-round.”
Lakefront Living realtors are the local, on-the-ground experts who provide critical community details for prospective lakefront and lake community buyers that includes specific shoreline conditions, neighborhood characteristics, zoning regulations, lake management operations, Lakefront events, and even offer boat tours of properties. Lakefront Living’s differentiates themselves with their comprehensive database of thousands of lakes analyzed to date along with their one-stop-shop website, LakefrontLiving.com, with the lake buyer in mind.
