Home Buyers: There is no such thing as a Perfect Home
Last week I asked a question to the Q & A platform "Is there such a thing as a Perfect Home" and around 80% of the answers that came in from ActiveRain members was ... NO!
I believe that the Perfect Home is in the eyes of the beholder, and every ones opinion of the Perfect Home is different.
For example: take a look at the home right (above), a architect more than likely designed this home and he may think this is the Perfect Home for him, and some people may think it's ugly.
Whether we are single, married with no children, married with 6 children, young, middle aged, or retired, everyone has that idea of the Perfect Home.
People like different colors, pools, no pools, 1 stories, 2 stories, 3 stories, log homes, earth homes, dome homes, igloos (just checking to see if your paying attention) and just about every type of home you could ever imagine could be the Perfect Home.
And even if you think you have either found that Perfect Home and or helped create that Perfect Home by home improvements, fixing up etc, as we get older our idea of the Perfect home starts to change once again.
Many years ago a persons career lasted a life time and in this day and age a person may go through 3 different careers.
And then we have styles that come and go over the years, the 1930's, 40's 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, etc that are forever changing. Some styles come back into style and some only come around once.
So if Home Buyers are looking for that Perfect Home, there really isn't the Perfect Home.
Now if Home Buyers are looking for a specific home to their liking and or one that fits their needs and or one they feel they could fix up and call the Perfect Home, wonderful!
So for all you Home Buyers that keep looking and looking and looking for that Perfect Home, please stop being so picky. You can paint it a different color, you can tear out the carpet, you can do so many different things to a home to help to make it your Perfect Home.
And always remember ... You are not married to your home, you can sell it any time you like until you feel you have found the Perfect Home!
Personally I like these homes on the lake because I grew up around water when my grandfather owned a lake home when I was young and growing up. Every time I get around a home on a lake it brings back happy memories ... ;o)
