In our younger years we experience a myriad of different housing situations, from living in our parents’ home, to shared student housing, to leaky basement apartments, to crammed condos. But with careful financial planning and a keen eye on the real estate market, there will come a time when you’re ready to finally move into that forever home. Here’s how you’ll know.
Pretty Little Liars
With starter homes, there are often trade-offs, such as sub-par living spaces for a lower price tag. If you’re tired of taking care of a house that does nothing for your aesthetic sensibilities, it might be time to step it up and find a space that truly reflects you.
To qualify as a “forever home,” there must be enough space to accommodate all that life throws at you — at least for the next 20 years. More kids down the road, parents moving in, or a backyard that’s big enough for a future pool, the house and lot need to hold all of it. If you’re ready to take on more square footage (and its accompanying upkeep), jump on in.
