I often see homes with special signs besides the address, that calls out a "name" for the home. Some are personal or may refer to something special about the property, like "FOX HILL"(a home on a hill where a fox is often spotted) or "Hill Top"(also a home that sits on a hill). There are also historic or period homes with creative names that refer to them. For instance a very decorated 1888 Victorian in Sea Cliff, NY, is called "The Greatest Painted Lady".
Giving your home a "name" could be a positive way for others to recall your home or a means to point it out to someone. Of course, homes have names like, "The Colonial" "The Split", The Ranch" etc... but giving it an original name sets it apart from the pact.
There are also negative ways to have a "name", especially one you don't give yourself. This kind of name you want to avoid, especially if your home is for sale. A home may be named by the neighbors, for example, a home where the couple always is fighting and screaming, may be called "Scream House" or a couple divorcing, "The Divorce Couple house", the one with shady people going in and out, "Drug dealer house" a home with an indoor pool "Pool House" etc.....
Then there are homes the Realtors may label, like a home with cats "The Cat House", a smokers house "Smoke House", a person who obsessively collects things, like dolls, "Doll House", or nick nacks "Junk House". Strange colors or finishes on the inside or outside could also form names "Rainbow House, "The White House", a stone home "Stone House" (not all that are negative) etc...
In summary, having a name could be a positive way to stand out, and that might be an added selling feature. Consider how valuable and well known "Graceland" is. However, if you don't have a name, and want to avoid being named, make sure before you list your home you remove or correct any thing that can cause negative names.
Do you have a home or a listing with a name?
If so, post it in the comments for all to see!
