How do we find our dream home?
Don’t let the media determine your dream home.
Chances are you already know what you want and what you can afford. Find a respected agent and trust them.
But also trust yourself – your home will only be a dream if it fits your life’s reality.
Picture how you’d paint the walls, and where you’d put furniture. Take pictures and keep good notes. Make lists about what you want – the size of the yard, how the house faces the sun, whether the layout suits your family’s lifestyle.
Consider what you’ll need if, for instance, you or family members age in the home. Compare your lists with potential properties, and consider if any necessary changes can be made easily.
Because it can only be a dream home if you can really live in it.
