Home /hohm/ – the place of residence where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.
The perfect home is out there waiting for you to find it. Our agents at CENTURY 21 are rearing to go on this property treasure hunt with you and you will surely get the ultimate prize in the end!
Home is where the Heart is
Ask anyone who has bought a property and they will tell you that the knowledge that they had found the right one came from their gut feeling. If your heart tells you that this house is your future home, then there is a great chance that you are right. Things like finding yourself unconsciously decorating the rooms and imagining yourself in them, as well as a sensation of feeling protective of the house when a flaw is pointed out, are all signs that you have probably found the ideal place for you. Trust your instinct or you might end up being disappointed.
Make it feel like Home
Once you’ve settled everything on the business side of things relating to acquiring a new home, make sure that it feels like one. Start by ensuring that the colours on the walls match your taste and the décor expresses what you want it to say. Hang up art that you enjoy viewing and picture frames of your loved ones to really reach that point where you believe you’ve been in that place forever. Moreover, never underestimate the power that carpets and curtains can have in making a home feel warm and welcoming – this is where you should invest a couple of extra Euros.
Open your Home to Others
So you’ve found your dream house and made it look and feel like a proper home. Next step? Invite some family and friends over to properly break it in and inject the rooms with the light and laughter they need to achieve that ‘lived in’ feeling. Nothing will fill your heart (and home) with more warmth and joy than seeing other people enjoying themselves in the environment you created.
Bonus point: One way to really make your house feel like a home is by getting a pet. Whether you choose to take care of a dog or cat or something a little less furry and traditional, placing a pet in your domestic environment will instantly boost the levels of homeliness your residence has. If permanently getting a pet is not a feasible option for you, you can always look into the possibility of fostering an animal for a short period of time.
