When Shopping for a Home, Think ‘Castles in the Air’

When shopping for a home, home buyers often don’t know what they really want. They’ll drive around looking for neighborhoods they feel comfortable in, perhaps close to schools or shopping, near a freeway, or even far away from “civilization.” We have many such homes here in Sylmar.

Design psychologists suggest that a good exercise for home buyers is to spend a few minutes thinking about ‘Castles in the Air’ (a fantasy picture of what they would possibly want to have in a home if they could have it).

One way to figure this out is to write down all the places the home buyer has lived, then circle the ones that were the most appealing (and write down why next to it). This list will reveal what the home buyer actually prefers emotionally — beyond the number of bedrooms and baths.

As a REALTOR®, my job is to help you find the perfect match between your idea of “home” and properties currently on the market. Please call me if you are planning to buy and just don’t know how to begin, or if you want to sell your house and move into your next dream home. Either way, I’m here to help. Call me at 818-970-1286.
