Going to stick out the last year lease at my apt and then move. My plan is to scrounge and save up as much as I can in order to buy my first home. Can’t afford Seattle metro home prices but there is a good chance my project management job is staying remote. If I stay remote and don’t end up losing my job due to economy slump, I can live anywhere. Olympia is more affordable and I’d be able to make the occasional site visit to projects in the metro area easily. The quarantine has made it abundantly clear to me that having a yard, a garage, and a dedicated office space would make home (and now work) life much healthier.
