Homeworking: an estate agent's perspective

As homeworking becomes increasingly popular, so does the attraction of having a home office when you come to sell your property. This article on Canada.com quotes builder and developer Bob Gill who says that it's common to see dedicated home offices in houses selling at over $750,000. Tellingly, real estate agent Dennis Jabs says in the article that 15 years ago, only one in 10 of househunters looked for an office in their home but now that figure is nearer four in 10 with lawyers and financiers particularly keen. For more on this subject, see this article on Enterprise Nation's site which suggests a home office can raise the value of your home by over £25,000.
