Would respondents consider living in the Adirondacks for an extended season if telecommuting was an option?
Significantly, 45% of our entire sample noted that they would consider living in the Adirondacks year around or for an extended season if telecommuting were an option for them.
Those that would consider living year around tended to be most considered with dual income opportunities, followed by home prices/availability and lack of business support. Over half of these same respondents felt that a Business Center was important to them, even though they indicated that the probability of usage was less than 20%. Generally, the “yes, I would consider moving,” market as a group had experience in telecommuting (40% already worked at home between 1 day and full-time activity.) Additional respondents stated that they would be interested, but lacked the opportunity to telecommute with their current employer. They stated that the flexibility in the work schedule as the most attractive.
