Finding Your Forever Home

 
‘Forever Home’ – what does it actually mean? We hear varying opinions, but generally, it means: a forever home is somewhere that you intend to settle down for the foreseeable future, if not the rest of your life. The definition is basically the opposite of a ‘Starter Home’ for a first-time buyer.
 

Atlanta is a hotspot right now for tourists, companies and families alike. With its parks, great music scene, interesting history, sports teams, great food and more, all sprawled into varied communities throughout the City. Atlanta’s culture and economy has made it into an International City with many Fortune 1,000, 500 and 100 companies headquartered here.

What Does Your "Forever Home" Look Like?

When thinking about your Forever Home, what do you see? Picture it in your mind. It may not be what you’re initially thinking. For many, buying a “forever home” is relieving and peaceful, knowing that you (may) never have to move again.

Once this thought sinks in, you next should be, “what does my Forever Home look like to me?” Are you thinking of downsizing, moving up or building new? This is where the decisions get a little harder.

What’s important to you? It’s a good idea to have your requirements in mind before you start looking for your forever home. Make a list of “must haves” and “would be nice to have”.

Must Have   

4 Bedrooms
3 Baths
1-Story (no stairs)
​​​​​​​Open Floor Plan

Nice To Have

Acreage
Outside Living / Entertaining Space
In-Law / Teen Suite
​​​​​​​3-4 Car Garage

Now that you have your wish list for your forever home, you’re just about ready to start the process of looking. Another important part of the process is hiring a knowledgeable Realtor. A Realtor is considered a professional; has completed the necessary training, belongs to their local Real Estate Board and has access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which is key to helping you navigate the housing market as finding your “Forever Home” can be daunting at best.
