It’s an interesting topic. Everyone has their idea of what “dream home” means. They’re at every price point.
If you’re looking for yours in 2020, read on for tips. If you’re listing, make it someone else’s dream home by staging it that way!
Dream homes are not one size or style fits all.
Can you picture your dream home? Try. It’s much easier to find when you know what it looks like!
If you need help getting started, think about the lifestyle you’re after and then imagine your new home at the epicentre of it.
You might want a family home that better suits your active lifestyle, for example. Maybe you’re renting and your dream is to own. Or it could be you’re ready to lock-and-leave as you travel to exotic destinations.
Once you’ve given some thought to your lifestyle and the home that’ll best suit it, think about your budget. The good news is there are dream homes at every price point. It’s all about the fit.
Consider the most appropriate square footage, floorplan and number of rooms. Give some thought to the type of neighbourhood you want to live in.
If you’re listing because you want to move – position your property as someone else’s dream home!
Who is the buyer that’ll see it that way? If you understand your home’s key strengths -- based on what people want -- you can enhance them for the sale. This doesn’t mean extensive renovations. You might not get your money back. It means great staging, though.
Stage it yourself or let us help you attract the right buyer. Consider updating colour schemes, furniture and layouts. Give our Interior Design Trends article in this newsletter a quick read.
Whatever you do around presentation, make sure it’s priced right when it hits the market and you’ll have a better chance at selling it quickly.
