Importance of commute time when signing a lease in Oct 2020Subscribe
I've heard MBB consulting firms are potentially WFH until Q2 2021, and could easily be pushed later as things progress. If I'm signing a one-year lease do you think it'd be worth getting a cheaper place in an area I'm perfectly happy living in (say Clinton Hill or JC or UES) in exchange for a 30-40 minute commute to work (way downtown)? I'm assuming we won't go back more than 3 months before the lease would be up and even in that case, I'm not sure how much people really commute to the office? Aren't consultants usually on cases - i.e. going to the client site? If people agree (1) it's likely WFH will be extended through the spring (2) even if WFH ends consultants will only have to commute to the office once or twice a week, then it'd help a lot in my apartment search. Thanks!
