Inspiration can come in many forms. Our new favorite shows are on HGTV -- One show we've been hooked on is called Love It Or List It -- A designer renovates portions of people's homes while a Realtor also shows them properties that meet the needs their home can't deliver. So many times people decide to stay where they are after the designer re-creates their current dwelling, but just as many times they decide to move to a different house to get all that they need.
I made a list last night of the things I want to do to our new house
eventually. I pretended that budget didn't matter and just made the
list. New floors, doors, furniture, re-doing the master bathroom. No
big deal, right? Some of the shows make renovations look so easy...but I know how daunting they can be. We moved out of our other house because we didn't want to overhaul the whole thing to make it "right" for us. We had outgrown it and needed more space and a new configuration.
Have you outgrown your house? Is your one bathroom causing strife? Maybe it's as easy as adding another bathroom-- or maybe not. This is the best time of year to start looking -- the weather is decent, you can see the yards, and spring is a time for change!
Until my budget allows for my renovation ideas, I think I'll just keep making my list :) If you're done loving your home, why not list it? We did, and it was the best decision we made all year!

Deep Sixing The Quest to DownsizingFinally, our family of five is livi
"I was interested in purchasing an out-of-state foreclosure I found online. I sent an email inquiry to EvoReal. I was contacted by agent Laura Beckman. Laura scouted out the property for me right away. The foreclosure property I was interested in was in need a new roof and the previous owners did some serious interior damage on their way out the door.
Laura hit the ground running again. By the next day I had a list of alternate properties to go over. I selected a few of the properties. With me being out of state, Laura previewed the homes for me, sent me pictures and videos, comps and the following day I was able to make an offer long distance. I was able to sign documents via an online service. This process was made practically seamless compared to my last few home purchases. I feel very lucky to have connected with this agent and recommend her highly!"
