What Really is a “Forever Home?”

Whether you have just started your career or are ready to settle down, the questions of when to purchase your “forever home” won’t stop flooding your mind. You constantly daydream about the amenities, details, and special touches. But when is the right time to make this investment? 

A forever home is a real commitment. Consider our advice before you take the next step.

What is a Forever Home?

When comparing it to a “starter home,” forever homes are quite straightforward. They are timeless homes that you would never change a thing about and that you hopefully never have to sell. 

A lot goes into building your forever home so you’ll want to take your time throughout the process. You’ll need to pick and choose all the important details that you didn’t think about for your “starter” or first home. Some of these include exterior and interior paint color, landscaping, cabinetry, flooring, and even hardware like doorknobs and drawer handles.

Your forever home takes after you, your style and is a part of your future. Hopefully, this home will remain in your family for generations to come.

Why a Forever Home?

If you’re thinking of building your forever home, you’ve probably found where you want to settle, begin a new chapter in your life, or start a family. Maybe you’ve saved a significant amount of money over years of hard work and now you’re financially stable enough to make an investment.

You found the right neighborhood, or maybe you found incredible friends that you never want to leave. The school system is A+ and the weather fits you perfectly. 

“Why a Forever Home?” You ask? Simply because you’ve found the place of your dreams at the perfect time of your life. Everything has simply fallen into place.

Questions to Ask Yourself

Buying your forever home is a big decision. Take some time to think about it, write out the pros and cons, and answer these questions to make sure this is the best time for you. 

  1. Are you in the process of getting married and having children, and therefore your decision-making may be clouded by emotion?
  2. Do you want to build and customize the perfect house?
  3. Do you want to live in a family-friendly neighborhood where people stay with their homes for more than 10 years?
  4. Do you intend to live in the area for more than 10 years?
  5. Do you have a stable job that you enjoy, or are there other job opportunities in the area?
  6. Do you want dogs or other pets?
  7. Do you want friends and family to have a place to stay in your home when they visit?
