Remote Work Reality
Working from home; it’s a lot of people’s new normal. Your “office” is your kitchen table and your nearest “coworker” is your dog. Plus, with the option or even requirement of remote learning for your kids in school, you could virtually never leave your house. A survey administered by Gartner found that 80% of company leaders plan to allow employees to work remotely at least part of the time after the pandemic, and 47% will allow employees to work from home full-time. In a PwC survey of 669 CEOs, 78% agree that remote work is here to stay for the long-term, largely due to reports showing increased productivity. Projections show that by 2025, 36.2 million Americans (22% of the workforce) will be working remotely. One study on telecommuting estimates that 73% of all departments will have remote workers by 2028. If that’s your new reality, don’t you want to live somewhere you love?
Big City Blues
The work from home trend means many people are fleeing big cities in favor of towns with fewer people and more outdoor spaces. Not to mention, less intense restrictions compared to places like Southern California, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, which are locked-down due to COVID-19. Speaking from experience, Angel Fire is the place to escape. The unbelievable natural beauty of the southern Rocky Mountains makes it feel like you are always on vacation. Working remotely is stressful enough as it is, you might as well live somewhere you’d typically go to escape. With golf galore in the summer and affordable skiing all winter long, Angel Fire is the place to be.
Why Angel Fire?
One of the biggest requirements for WFH is reliable internet, right? Fortunately, Angel Fire underwent a significant infrastructure improvement a couple of years ago and now has high-speed broadband internet. Make remote work more enjoyable by moving somewhere both functional and beautiful. The 1,200 person population of Angel Fire means that overcrowding is a nonissue. Unlike other, more densely populated ski towns, namely in Colorado, property is so affordable in Angel Fire that it could serve as a second home. Living here comes with all of the perks and less than half the cost! You get so much more for your money. Not to mention the endless summer and winter activities right outside your door.
