Every time I open my fridge I see one item that seems really out of place and is not edible .. a house! Whaaat? Why? How? you are asking? Why would I do such a thing? I admit, it might seem a bit strange but I can assure you that there is a fairly simple explanation: I am big on visualizing my goals.
And big goals we have. We've more than outgrown our current house and hubby's commute to Walter Reed NMMC is just too long. It's taking too much time away from the most important part of our life, our girls. Our dream is to move-up within the Silver Spring, MD area within a year or two.
We are regular hard working people - there has been no winning lottery ticket in our past and there will be no big inheritance in our future. We have to make a plan in order to make our home-buying dream come true. The house in the fridge is just a reminder to stick to the plan and to the budget.
Whether it's the first house or the fifth most people cannot just go out one day and purchase one. It takes planning, budgeting and discipline. Seeing your goal in front of you can help keep you focused.
If you don't happen to have a house handy, you could also cut out a picture and attach it to the front of your fridge or tape it to your bathroom mirror. Or you can stick a copy right where seeing a visual of your dream may have the biggest impact: your wallet .. in front of your credit cards.
The fridge was my choice because I look into it more than a mirror - I have kids - as well as my wallet.
If you are dreaming of a new home a bit of visualization may just help get or keep you on track, too. When you are ready to set out on your home-buying journey in the Silver Spring, MD area, please give me a call - I can help make your dream come true.
