As Remote Destinations and Telecommuting Emerge as the New Normal and Preference
LOMBOK, Indonesia (November 20, 2020) – Selo Group, an award-winning and fully integrated development company, is introducing a range of lifestyle investment options as digital nomadism and remote working as well as destinations with less crowds emerge as the new normal and preference. The group’s land and villa developments are increasingly in high demand since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic as rising numbers of savvy investors are seeking vacation homes where they can maintain a healthy lifestyle while remaining plugged into work and school.
According to the Knight Frank Global Buyer Survey 2020, over 26 percent of respondents said they were more likely to buy a second home as a result of the pandemic, presumably to enhance their lifestyle and to use as a retreat in the event of future outbreaks. Home offices and outdoor space are a growing priority along with privacy. Pent up demand is also apparent, as 51 percent of respondents say they plan to travel within three months of borders reopening.
“In 2020, 88 percent of employees have experienced the benefits of working from home and several companies have transitioned their office format to remote-work permanently,” said Andrew Corkery, CEO of Selo Group. “Now is a prime time to invest in not only a vacation home, but rather, a new lifestyle for work, home and leisure. With our portfolio of luxury products and land parcels, we are providing buyers with a lifestyle investment that is beneficial to their wellbeing and will generate memories to cherish for years to come.”
