The way we work has changed.  Permanently.   

In a world of masks and lockdowns, businesses have been forced to adapt to the new global circumstances.  Some of those adaptions are transient, likely to disappear with the rollout of a vaccine.  Others – like working from home – are more permanent.

The old objections to remote work (distraction, mistrust, time management) have been overridden by necessity, and now businesses are starting to realise that a workplace of video conferences and empty offices might actually benefit them.

According to Review42, 55% of businesses globally offered some capacity for remote work prior to COVID-19; now, 88% of business organisations worldwide have either mandated or encouraged their employees to work from home.  These numbers aren’t going to backflip, either.  Remote work in the United States alone has risen by 173% between 2005 and 2018, making it likely the events of 2020 have just accelerated trends towards an increasingly digital world.

For property investors, this is an unprecedented opportunity.

Think about it for a moment.

Prior to 2020, only 55% of the world’s workforce knew about the benefits of remote work: more exercise (leading to better health), work environment control (leading to greater productivity), more time with family and loved ones (leading to greater life satisfaction), a more flexible schedule (leading to great productivity and happiness).

Now, 88% of employees understand how great a remote workplace can be, and they’re looking to take it even further: once travel resumes, digital nomadism will be on the rise.

Working and travelling is the ultimate dream for most people, and the lifestyle of a digital nomad makes it possible.  No 9-5, no daily commute, no restrictive commitments … just a coffee, a laptop, and a view of somewhere exotic and beautiful.

The biggest challenge?  Finding somewhere to stay.  Hotels are too crowded and too expensive, home villas are few and far between, and Airbnbs are unsustainable for long-term residences.  When travel resumes, the world’s new influx of digital nomads are going to have trouble finding accommodation.

And that’s your opportunity.

Selo Group’s sustainable developments are designed for beautiful locations like Lombok or anywhere in Indonesia, delivering a balanced lifestyle of work, home and leisure.  Pick a location, work with us to develop a design, and our fully integrated approach handles the rest.

Even when you’re somewhere else in the world, your new property will continue to benefit you – rent it out as a high-yield holiday home to those newly minted remote workers, and watch the returns flood in.

2020 has given property investors an opportunity.  It’s up to you to seize it.
