Does your home reflect.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

My lifestyle is very different than it used to be. I live smaller and that works for me. Years ago small was a relative expression, and I definitely had too much space and not enough time to use it anyway. Now I find that I don't need much space and I have a great deal of time. I work, I garden in a bigger space and one that I literally created from nothing, and I have a place I created and genuinely enjoy. Does your home reflect your lifestyle.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Hi Barbara. I remember you contemplating a condo and thought ....not me. I am glad you are happy in your old new home. Me too.  TY     Sheila

Hi Sheila- it does. We thought we wanted something much smaller when we moved back to Houston but we ended up with something larger than our last home. But it works for our current lifestyle. Plenty of room to have the family over.

I also live smaller, and love it.  Life is so beautiful in its simplicity.

I can tell from other posts you have shared about your gardens and your home that you love where you are. That is a wonderful thing!

Morning Sheila.

While I'm content to live where I do, my dream is not fulfilled as far as to where I would like to be.

My home does reflect my lifestyle, Sheila. I don't need a ton of space, but I do like having some and knowing I can easily accommodate guests and visitors without disrupting my life. And I'm very happy having a 3,500 square foot home sit on a lot of about .14 acres... because I have no interest whatsoever in gardening. Living in a community where the HOA takes care of lawn maintenance is perfect for me and having someone come in and trim bushes and lay pine straw three times a year is my idea of heaven.

We downsized almost 8 years ago, and city condo living is a delight for us. After being on a wait list for 7-1/2 years, I now have my garden plot at nearby Fort Mason, where I would love to spend more time if that were available.

Sheila, the short answer is NO...2 adults and 2 small dogs in a 2800 sq. ft. 4BR, 3 bath traditional 2 story... The house is mortgage free BUT even if we were to sell it at its full value, locally, we'd have to shell out about $100,000 to downsize into one of the numerous local 55+ communities... So we're 'staying put'... I think we're not alone.
