Do you have a home office???

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX By The Bay

Great article in today's Realty Times about having an office in your home.

http://realtytimes.com/rtapages/20060803_homeoffice.htm

I've had one for over 10 years now in addition to an office at the real estate firm I'm affiliated with; I see each as a great compliment to the other.

I find I'm very productive in the morning hours working from my home office. I can go work out with my wife and then come home, fix a nice breakfast, and do some work from there before getting cleaned up and heading in to the ‘other' office.

It's also very convenient to have this setup in the evening hours if I get a property call or need to send or receive a fax; no more trips to the office at 10:00 PM to get or send a fax.

The home office environment is also much more conducive, for me anyway, for more long term or serious projects which take concentration and focus. At my home office there's no co-workers stopping by to ask a question, decide where to go to lunch, or talk about last night's ball game or whatever.

Do you have an office in your home and how's it working out for you???

I think as our work becomes more electronic and internet based, the concept of "office" is becoming a bit blurry. I have a home "office", but I have full access to everything I need to conduct business just about everywhere I am. With tools like EVDO internet access, eFax, Zipforms, TP7i, portable printers, etc. I can do everything I need to do just about anywhere I am. As paperless transactions and electronic signatures become more common, we are moving to a point where a laptop and cell phone will be about all you need to conduct business.

Well written Jim...I have a home office and I am typing this comment on your blog while sitting in a very nice office in a comfortable chair that I don't have to pay office dues for.....

Enough said.... ;-)

Get so much more done from home, use goto meeting for our team meetings and it is great we do have two office rooms in Celebration but we are hardly ever there.

Why not just sign up for an internet fax service. Send and receive faxes via email. No fax machine, no second line, no hard to read pages, no more waiting on your husband to get off the couch!.

Since I signed on with rapidfax.com ($9.95 a month) I haven't needed or used a regular fax machine. It even comes with a toll free fax number which our out-of-state clients love.

Try it, I promise you it'll be the best ten bucks a month you've ever spent.

There was a great article at NAR about home officers and their earnings compared to Office workers in our industry.  The bottom line is those who go in make more.  I will see if I can find the article.
