Your Home is Your Character; Your Personality

Real Estate Agent with Pat Bennett Realty MA 9508945 NH 059297

Buyers go in search of homes with a few thoughts in mind; to get the most for their hard earned cash, to make sure it fits their needs and most important, the home's appeal.  After an exhaustive search, the buyer settles down to what he feels will be the right choice.  Was the home chosen because of the price, NO?  Was it chosen because it met his needs completely, No?  The home's appeal will win nine out of ten times and why...., because it felt right. 

Buyers search first within their price range and this is the first step.  When they come to a home that tugs at their heart strings, more than most will try to stretch a little above the price.  Because there is such a range of home styles to choose from, buyers need time to match their personalities to their homes.  There was a commercial on TV not long ago that showed pets with their owners.  It was amazing how each animal had some distinct feature that resembled its owner.  It doesn't matter whether the home is median or high end, in every way it will reflect the owners image. 

With the passage of time our tastes change or circumstances change that make it necessary to yet again go in search of a home that will reflect our new lifetyle.  It may be better earning power that will allow us to upgrade or a change in the family structure that directs us toward downsizing.  No matter what the situation may be, we will be searching for that special home, that wonderful place that nurtures us and shields us from the outside world.

You are so right about the passage of time changing your housing needs. If the kids are grown, out of the nest, and you have a big home. Can you see yourself living in "part" of the home? A crow's nest third floor apartment because you are retiring, going to be traveling and just need a spot between the treks? Or carving out a daylight cellar granny flat, or an in law suite over the garage, finishing off the back shed? Using all the space and maybe renting out the areas you don't need to family like your favorite uncle, aunt in one portion, your parents in another. Makes the family tighter, closer and saves beaucoup dollars.

Andrew I daresay that you've come up with quite a few ideas that deserve merit.  As a matter of fact these days that's exactly what's happening.  Saving dollars is most important and if you don't need that big house think of the savings as far as taxes and heating bills.  Thank you Andrew for your response.
