Defining Your Dream Home

There’s nothing more satisfying than living in your dream home: a space that you’ve hoped for and envisioned for years. Many Albertans are pursuing this kind of milestone! According to a recent study, “At 56%, Alberta boasts Canada’s highest homeownership rate among those aged 25 to 35. Of those homeowners, 24% purchased a home since mid-March of last year. Among those who do not currently own a home, 71% say they intend to buy within the next five years.”

After over 20 years in the real estate industry, I can confidently say that one of my favourite things to do is find a client’s dream home. Whether it’s your first house or fifth, I am here to help!

Call me today, and let’s get started. My number is 780.819.0978.


Where To Start in Defining Your Dream Home

  1. Define Your Style: Seek out the do’s-and-don’ts of what you are looking for. Are you dreaming of an open concept? Is character important to you or are you looking for something more modern? Are you wanting lots of space, like an acreage? A yard? Porch? Spend time researching and nailing down that style!

  2. Future Thinking: Will your family be growing? Do you plan on hosting dinner parties? Will friends and/or family be coming to visit? These are all questions that will help in firming up the size and location of your future home.

  3. Explore The Neighbourhood: Don’t underestimate this one. It’s important to spend some time researching exactly what you need in a neighborhood: schools, parks, grocery stores, walking trails, etc.

  4. Deal Breakers: If you aren’t building your home, it’s important to know what are deal-breakers in finding your perfect home. At the same time, be realistic about what you want and what’s within your budget. It’s important to distinguish between your wants and needs.

  5. Seek Help: A Real Estate Agent is held to ethical rules in helping people find a home. At Goodchild Realty Services, we go above and beyond. We are here to support you in the process of finding your ideal home!
