A home is more than just four walls and a roof.
It is more than rooms filled with furniture.
Yet, when we are looking for a new home or selling our current place, we are tempted to reduce the experience to its tangible elements.
As buyers, we cringe at the outdated wallpaper, the oversized sectionals in the living room, question the overall square footage and scrutinize the mechanicals on every home we look at in our search for that perfect one.
As sellers, we boast about the subzero refrigerator and granite countertops we paid premium dollars for, and expect all potential buyers to appreciate the gorgeous fire pit on the back patio.
But, what are we really buying, and what are we truly selling?
It's not “just a house.”
It's not just a box of furniture.
As REALTORs, it is our job to get beyond refrigerators and granite countertops. Your home is where you will spend the majority of your time with your loved ones and friends. It is both the factory and the storehouse of our memories. It is the place where you will see your children take their first steps, learn to ride a bike, do their homework, go to their senior prom and become mature, young adults.
Your home is where you will bond with those special neighbors – the ones who watch your pets and water your plants while you are on vacation. It's the place where you landed that big promotion when your husband wowed your boss with his famous teriyaki chicken. It's the bedroom where you stayed up all night with your son’s flu bug.
Buying a home is a major step in everyone's life. Picking the right setting for all of those potential memories is as important as picking the right schools.
It's not always easy to spot just the right one when you are searching for a home. As your REALTOR, we can eliminate many of the smaller issues so that you can spend more time imagining how your family will occupy the rooms within the walls – horrific wallpaper notwithstanding.
If you are looking to purchase a new home, or wish to sell your current residence, please contact me and save yourself the worry and headache of trying to navigate an increasingly complicated and fast-paced market. Seller expectations are high, inventories are low, and competition is fierce.
