How To Know When You’ve Found “The One” – Home Edition

Are you currently on the hunt for a new house to call your home? Can’t make a decision between two of your favourites? We’re here to help! Purchasing a new home whether, it’s your 1st or your 3rd, can be a tough task. When do you know when you’ve found the one that’s right for you and your family? There are a few factors to take into consideration before making the call:


  1. You can envision your family living there.

When you first step into the home you can envision your children running around, spending quality time with your family and hosting a party in the home. This is a great sign that you’re on the way to finding the one. No home is complete without the ability to be comfortable in your own surroundings with the people you love most.

  1. The house fits your basic needs.

There may be some aspects of the new home that don’t exactly fit your wish list, but having the home fit your basic needs is a necessity. For example, the home must have the right number of bedrooms and washrooms that you require to function as a family. Being flexible is also a very important in the house buying process. The colour on the walls might not be your cup of tea, but small details like these can be changed in no time! Remember to focus on the big picture.

  1. Location, location, location.

Location is a very important detail that should never be overlooked. How close is the home to your office, school, parks and shopping? The home should meet all your desired needs in location. If the home is too far from a bus or train station that you take to work, maybe that isn’t the right home for you. First instincts are key when looking into locations for potential homes. Make sure to take a walk through the neighbourhood after your viewing to check out the community.

  1. You can’t stop thinking about the house.

You’re talking to your friends, family and co-workers about the property. This is a fantastic sign that the house is right for you! When you’ve reached the point where you feel no need to look at any other homes and you want to make this one yours its time to make a move!

  1. You’ve already started picturing your stuff in each room!

This is something that many people do when they’ve found “the one”. As you’re walking through the home you can’t stop thinking to yourself how perfect the space is for your personal belongings. As long as you can envision your furniture and decor in the home everything else will fall into place in no time!
