True love is hard to find and Valentine’s Day is a time when love is celebrated. Finding your soul mate is hard, but finding your forever home can be even harder. How will you know if your have the Perfect House or the “Perfect for Now House?
Read below to learn how to find your forever home:
Your forever home has 85% of your must-haves.
Think you know your must-haves? Fun activity: grab a piece of paper (one for each person making the buying decision). Without sharing ideas, write down 10 must-haves for the new home. Now circle the three non-negotiable items. Compare your lists. Your forever home should have at least those three circled features from each list but rarely does it have all ten.
Your home withstands time.
It’s a known saying in real estate “so long as you’re living, there is another move in your future.” It’s very true. From buying your first home to moving to an elder care environment, your forever home may be forever for a period of time. Your new forever home must meet the needs of your current place in time.
Your home makes you happy.
It’s true there is a “vibe” in homes. Some homes feel happy and some not so much. Your forever home will give you that good vibe and you’ll recognize the feelling when it happens. The vibe that makes you look forward to coming home after a long day of work or even coming back from an amazing vacation. There is truly no place like home.
