The ongoing pandemic is influencing the kind of home new buyers are looking for.

Forget the home gym and the huge media room. Most home buyers right now are looking for a home office. 

According to a study by, a home office is a must for many new buyers.  About 40 percent of  potential homebuyers are working remotely so they are looking for homes to accomodate those needs.

In some cases buyers are looking for 2 home offices or enough room to transform an extra bedroom or dining room into an office. 

It's unclear how long this demand will last but for now a home office is the most chosen new home feature.
