More people than ever are working from home. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 24 percent of employed people in the US work from home at least part of the time—and that number jumps to 42% of workers with advanced degrees. And as more people make the shift towards working from home, the demand for home offices is on the rise.

According to a recent article in The New York Times, home offices are quickly becoming one of the most requested features for potential buyers. “The importance of home offices has almost begun to rival the attention that buyers give to kitchens,” says Robin Kencel, an associate broker with Compass in Greenwich, Conn., in the NYT article. And as working from home becomes more common, that demand only stands to increase.

The Takeaway:

What does that mean for you? If you telecommute, having a functional workspace in your home is important. Work with your real estate agent to find a property that has a room or separate space you can use as an office so that your home works for you and your career.
