With the migration out of the cities, Farham is a great place to live if you are thinking of moving to a smaller place. Situated between Portsmouth and Southampton, it offers many great residential options for those seeking a great work from home location. Helped by major development some 5 decades ago, Fareham is an area which includes lovely towns like Titchfield, Catisfield, Porcester and Funtley.
The phenomenon of working from home is likely to be a trend that will continue for the considerable future. Homeowners are finding that country locations offer a great respite from the hurly-burly of the cities.
Overheads tend to be much lower, house prices a lot cheaper, these all help reduce the harshness experienced as a result of the economic conditions experienced in 2020. These economic conditions have affected most people, and many are finding that they need to re-invent themselves in business as a result.
Stop & Store self-storage has a significant role to play in the modern economy of Fareham as we assist homeowners and businesses who are relocating or downsizing. Self-storage is a very cost effective and convenient way to keep goods in storage while doing so.
What is the Modern Economy?
As most of us strive to increase our wealth, work hard and improve our lives, the events of 2020 have woken up to the reality that working conditions are not the same as before. Long periods that have resulted in lockdowns and working from home have caused insecurities and uncertainty.
The modern economy means that the cities may well change in character. As downtown offices become vacant, they may be more suited for low cost housing or boarding establishments for students.
Modern shopping centres could change their character altogether, while the opportunity to “green up” city areas, using solar power into more cost affordable community areas could occur.
Out of the bad has come good and we have had time to think about others, get closer to the family, and ask ourselves what we really want out of life.
Many have gone the extra mile for others by
- Donating some of their wealth for food or other necessities to charities that help the less fortunate
- Others have chosen to volunteer to work at food kitchens for the poor
- Going local was a big trend, bringing life back into their local community and supporting local industry and farmers.
- Employers have had to manage pay cuts in order to retain and look after staff.
- Essential workers have emerged as the unheralded heroes in communities.
It’s been a learning curve for everyone.
