Joining the list of new homebuyer demands is the Zoom room. A Zoom room is an area of the home dedicated to conducting video conferencing for work, remote learning, or virtual family gatherings. says some agents are using Zoom rooms as selling points in listings. Two important features of a Zoom room, according to, are a professional look and an attractive, well organized background. But the most important feature is a strong Wi-Fi connection. Taking over an unused part of the home, such as under the stairs, can be perfect for a Zoom room, but it should be a quiet area as well.

To make sure you're able to maintain focus, you want this dedicated area to be in a quiet location, away from the main part of the house, if possible, says Karen Gray-Plaisted of Design Solutions KGP.
