Making Your House A Home
Much of our blog reports on market conditions, local area lifestyle information, home improvements as well as Buyer and seller information. To frequently we fail to talk about just enjoying your home. We would like to underscore the importance of making a house a home. When we think about increasing curb appeal for sellers, what about for buyers to envision themselves in a home? What are some steps you can take to really envision your ideal home, and then start your search. It is a great time to buy over renting, and stabilizing housing costs is a great way to invest in your future.
Your Future Space
How do you take up space? This is more than an abstract concept. When you are envisioning your new home, where are the spaces that matter the most to you. If you are trying to get the most for your money, homes that offer huge kitchens, when you are not a big cook, would not make sense. Similarly, if a home has a dedicated media room and you do not watch a lot of TV, it is also not a great fit.
Once you have thought about your anticipated usage, think of how you can customize space. If you are purchasing a single-family home, that is an existing construction this may be a bit more difficult than if you are customizing a new construction home. If you are looking to customize a new home, we have so many resources for you. When customizing an existing home, during showings consider cosmetic versus structural changes. A good Realtor should be able to tell you what generally will be feasible, what will have broad market appeal in terms of resale and even suggest vetted resources to help you realize your vision.
Your Home, Your Happy Place
What makes you happy about your living space? When you come home from work or if you work from home, where do you find the most joy. Home shopping can be stressful! You will enjoy the experience much more if you have a clearer vision of what really brings you the greatest happiness in the space you call home. It could be a luxurious spa like bath or a kitchen where you may cook nice meals to enjoy with your family. Perhaps it's a dedicated studio space, or home gym. It's different for each of us but regardless of what your "happy space" is theemotional benefitsare one of the joys of homeownership that cannot be overstated.
