Is a home office on your checklist of “must haves” or “maybes” for your next house in Bend? You’re not alone. Many of our clients are entrepreneurs or remote workers, and having a dedicated space at home to focus on work is essential to their careers and work-life balance.
Bend has a well-earned reputation as a haven for people who thrive personally and professionally by working remotely in our mid-sized, mountain town. According to a new report by the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis, Bend now leads the nation in telecommuting careers, with over 12% of its workforce operating remotely. Not only is Bend’s virtual workforce opting out of long driving commutes in large, metropolitan areas, but we are finding a way to balance focused productivity with increased time for friends, family and outdoor recreation.

The layout, size and style of at-home workspaces for Bend remote workers varies. From separate rooms completely devoted to work, to inventive work-space solutions that maximize part of a multi-functional room, home offices can take on different forms. Robust technology has dramatically reduced the footprint of the home office, and we are consistently impressed by the creativity of our clients in envisioning personal work spaces that suit their individual styles and unique, professional needs.
One of our core values is work-life balance, and we love helping our clients carve out time for career, family and outdoor recreation with a home that is perfectly matched to their needs. Many of our new listings include home offices, including this one in River’s Edge.
