Is Commute Time Becoming a Housing Factor?

Article | June 2, 2021

While many workers plan, at least according to recent surveys, to continue spending at least part of each week working from home, a shorter commute still seems to be holding increasing appeal. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB ) says its first quarter Home Building Geography Index (HBGI) indicates not only a pandemic driven shift in construction to low density, low cost markets, but a rapid expansion in areas with the shortest commutes. Litic Murali, writing in NAHB's Eye on Housing blog, says workplaces are moving toward hybrid home/office work models which could affect 30 to 40 percent of the American workforce. This will give renters and buyers increased market power over their travel times and the ability to reduce both housing and transportation costs. The nationwide average commute is 26 minutes. Those counties in the bottom quintile (lowest 20 percent) have a commute time of 18 minutes or less while the commute in the highest quintile is 28 minutes. The data show that 36.2 percent of the U.S. population resides in the counties in that top slice. The HBGI indicates that the top two quintiles with the longest commutes together had 63.6 percent of single family building. However, growth was strongest in that bottom quintile with a four-quarter moving average annual growth of 22.2 percent.

The Future of Real Estate & Realtors

Article | April 3, 2020

It is where the AI (Artificial Intelligence) takes over days worth of a real estate agent's hard work and computes results in a second. We are moving at an unprecedented pace in technology and everything seems to be moving faster with time - Data capture, data analysis, home comparables, broker commission splits, transaction timeline and much more. As AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IOT (Internet of things) take over most of the work of Realtors, the biggest question that lies ahead is "What is the future of Real Estate & Realtors?
