What does “Home” mean?

by | Feb 8, 2008 | How to Guides, Uncategorized

I read an article this morning from one of my favorite columnists, Carol Lloyd, who writes a weekly column called “Surreal Estate.” In the column she talks about a recent study asking children and adults what their “dream” home was.

The results?: A place with Love, Family, Good neighborhoods and Good schools topped the list. Little mention was made of Appliances, Appreciation or Square footage.

I think this article is a great reminder of why we buy homes… To have a place of our own, one we can make special. A place where we make memories, play our music, and make our families and our future.
