Love the Home You're In, Or Find a New One
There’s the Christmas holidays, back to school expenses and all the other major points during the year that can be stressful and busy for people all over the lower mainland - truly, all over the world.
But Valentine’s Day is still one of the most cherished points on the calendar because it reminds us of what we have and where we want to be.
The things you love the most are often contained under one roof. Your partner, your family, hey, maybe even a dog or two. There’s nothing that compares to the feeling you get when you walk through the door at the end of the day into your castle. Or townhouse, sure, that works too!
The point is that your home means more to you than anything else, because it contains that which is most precious.
Under Your Roof
Home is where the heart is, but it’s about more than the people with whom you live. Your home says a lot about you as a person, or, more accurately, who you are has a lot to do with the type of home in which you choose to live.
Whether it’s an apartment downtown close to the sights and sounds of the city, or a quiet house on the outskirts of town that allows you to lead a cozy and quiet life, to love your home is to love yourself.
Except it’s not always that simple, is it?
The biggest purchase of our lives is often dictated by the circumstances with which we’re faced. We’d all love to afford the house of our dreams in our 20’s, but a lot has to break right. Your job and your earning power will obviously have a large say in the matter, as will the state of your family (or growing family).
Unforeseen situations arise as well. Illness, layoffs, vehicle malfunctions, even credit card mistakes can put a significant dent in your ability to afford a home.
And if the unthinkable happens and you’ve got more questions than answers?
Then it might be time for a new home.
Under A New Roof
Home is where the heart is no matter where that home might be. We’ve helped people pick up and set down new roots in every small town this side of the Alberta/Saskatchewan border, and the need for the move has varied everywhere between sudden illness to simple retirement.
The great thing about picking up and moving is you’re not actually starting over, you’re taking a different path. When you move, you get to bring the things that matter, the location is just a few miles (or a few hundred miles) different.
This Valentine’s Day, shower the things in your life that truly matter with all the attention they deserve. Flowers, chocolates and presents enjoyed together under a strong roof is the best way to celebrate the most romantic day of the year.
And if circumstances dictate the need to move that roof elsewhere? As long as you’ve got the love of your family, the location doesn’t matter.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
