How is your daily commute going?

If you work from home, then it doesn’t matter.

But suppose you work downtown every day: Do you commute across town, fighting the Denver traffic on a daily basis? If you have to travel hours each day to get to work, I bet you’ve been thinking about how you can change your commute: “How can I relocate? How can I find a better way, short of getting a different job, that allows me to work from (or closer to) home?

For those who want to keep their current job but fix their daily commute, I encourage you to think about the benefits of owning real estate closer to work—it can make your life better.

We always ask our clients how owning real estate could make their life better. How will buying a house help your life, and in what ways? Is it going to increase your quality of life?
It’s not even just your money that your long commute is eating up—it’s also consuming quality time with those you love.
If you’re commuting 45 minutes to an hour (sometimes even two hours) every day just to go to work, purchasing a home closer to work is something to consider. Think about other areas in town that might shorten your commute and save you a ton of money in the process. Imagine all the money you’re spending on gas or public transportation every single day.

And it’s not even just your money that your long commute is eating up—it’s also consuming quality time with those you love, whether it’s with your kids, your spouse, your family, or your friends. If you could have more time to spend with your loved ones AND live in a great property from which the commute to work would save you money, wouldn’t it be worth it?

You have all sorts of options. Yes, it may mean a sacrifice in some areas, but I encourage you to take some time to reflect on what’s most important to you and how real estate could help improve your quality of life.

If you’ve thought about finding a way to shorten your commute to work, reach out to me. We can discuss whether that’s even possible, what areas would be beneficial to look into if it is, and how we could go about finding the right property for you. I hope to hear from you soon.
