Work from paradise

Have you ever thought about ditching the office? You're certainly not the only one! Actually, many Canadians are choosing telecommuting jobs or jobs where they can partially work from home - or even better from the cottage. CTV News said, "any are choosing to take their profits from selling their home in the city and relocating to a property near a lake while perhaps maintaining a condo in the city." Sounds like a great idea to me! Wouldn't you rather work from your waterfront cottage? 

More Canadians choosing to work from cottages, vacation homes

MONTREAL -- The telecommuting revolution envisioned by futurists, in which vast numbers of workers eschew their daily commute in favour of working remotely from home, never quite turned out as predicted. However, a growing number of Canadians are taking the term "working remotely" literally, leaving the hustle and bustle of city life behind to work from their cottage or winter home down south, says a real estate expert. "To the extent that that expands further, I think it will further enable the larger trend of working from places that you like," said Brad Henderson, president and CEO of Sotheby's International.
