Goodbye Boston, Hello Marblehead

Here are my predictions of what will follow from COVID-19:

  1. People, especially families with young children, will look to move out of Boston and to towns like Marblehead with great schools, open spaces, history – and ocean
  2. The demand for open floor plans will give way to the desire for separate rooms. after families get bored of listening to everybody else’s Zoom calls, online classes, etc. etc.
  3. The perceived negative of Marblehead that commuting into Boston is a challenge (one which residents happily overcome) will diminish as more people work remotely at least some of the time.
  4. Did I mention the ocean?
