Discovering the 15 Minute Lifestyle of Orange County, NY

It goes without saying that the pandemic has affected many aspects of our lives. The initial shock of lockdowns and the unknown rocked what we thought was a steady foundation beneath us. But following a disturbance to the norm can often come revelation and insight.



One of the obvious upheavals of shutting down major cities and busy business centers was the overall shift to working from home. Those who were used to hectic commutes had a complete shift in lifestyle. Suddenly they could work remotely. Their location no longer mattered.


In terms of real estate, this meant that an initial slow down in sales became a shift in seeking homes outside the city.


And the move to working from home for many companies meant a permanent change. Many business models changed for good with no plan to change back.


Many people living and working in New York City suddenly found themselves location independent.


This pivot in the way we work has led people to change the way they live their lives. Since it is no longer necessary to live and work in a busy city people are looking elsewhere for a different lifestyle.
