Turning a house into a home

Real Estate Agent with Lebrau Property

The real estate industry is one that is continuously moving through the ebbs and flows of a fluid economy. This is the one constant in real estate the world over, the common thread that binds different nations’ real estate markets into a global string. It is a commonly-known fact that sometimes the property market in one place in the world is booming, and other times it is flailing. Different areas go in and out of style. Sometimes the overall economy makes it difficult to be a buyer, and other times it makes it more difficult to be a seller. Whichever side of the equation you sit on, there are prime times to be there, and there are opportunities for waiting it out. It is the nature of the real estate market (again, the common thread that spans the globe).

When one does manage to break into the property market at a good time, everything is on the up and up. When buyers finally purchase a new property, there is a sense of excitement, of the beginning of a new chapter. Sometimes, new homeowners buy their dream property with all the trimmings, and other times they purchase a fixer-upper house with the dream of turning it into their dream down with their own two hands (and then there are those who buy a property to get into the market, and build up their portfolio from there on out). Once the house is finished, it comes together and then comes the fun part – personalising it with furniture and personal effects.

From the couch you have been eyeing since the renovation process began becoming the centre piece in your new living room, to the vitamins and minerals from Plant Therapy in your kitchen cupboards, filling the new home with everything that you love and that calms you are the best and most exhilarating parts of it all. This is the finish line after the long haul through the challenging hurdles. This is when the house effectively and wholly becomes a home, your home. The renovation process can be one of the most challenging things that anyone can go through, but the rewards at the end are all the motivation you could ever need to persevere through the difficult stages and onto the finishing touches.

There is something exhilarating about seeing the vision in your head come to vivid life, and people are realising this even more. The real estate market for buyers wanting to purchase fixer-upper properties is positively booming right now, and it is not at all difficult to understand why. Buying property as opposed to renting effectively takes the money out of the landlord’s pocket and future, and into your own. Building towards and investing in your own future and quality of life is always of better interest than doing the same to make someone else’s dreams come true. Real estate ownership can be a daunting prospect, but it is entirely worth it in the end.

Thanks for post.  Good information.  Not everybody likes fixer uppers, but personally I love them.  Our current home is not a fixer upper per say, but a century home that was in good condition overall.  But like any century home there is work to do.  Paining, wood decay, etc.. etc.. But they are great if you love the work but not so much for everbody.
