Ask yourself—Am I Living in my Dream Home?
- No, I just bought my first home and will eventually be in a position to buy my dream home.
- Yes, with a few changes it can be my dream home.
- I can’t even afford rent in this town.
- Well, no, but I can’t find my dream home so I’ve given up.
Regardless of your answer, ask yourself the next series of questions and then answer that first question again—Am I Living in My Dream Home?
- Do you want more space, outside and inside? Or are you wanting to downsize?
- Is that 2 story still working for you?
- Do you want the convenience of living close to everything or are the wide-open spaces calling to you?
- Do you like a huge open kitchen and adjoining family room so you can be the holiday house?
- How many times a week do you wish that you could knock out that wall or build that addition or move your house to another neighborhood?
- Do you still visualize that cute bungalow near Old Town or the health center or your grandkids?
- Do you dream of a 1500 sq. ft. ranch with a couple of outbuildings, 2-3 acres with trees, large boulders and a dog agility course for those cute little rescue pups? (Hey, that’s my fantasy! Get out of my head!)
When interest rates are this low, when we are in a strong seller’s market (especially if you need to sell your present home), and the frenzy of spring buying is just a terrible nightmare, the possibility of finding your dream home becomes more real.
Don’t be discouraged by reports of lack of inventory or high prices (remember your home has appreciated, too)—the next six months may be one of the best times to in northern Colorado to find your dream home. With less competition for the more expensive homes and still lots of buyers for your home—what are we all waiting for?
