Owning a home is highly emotional, despite what the financial experts say about it being your biggest investment. At a certain point it becomes more than just the house you live in.
Here are 5 signs that you love your home:
1. You daydream about how you‘ll make it better and then proceed to invest in it
Wanting to change the kitchen cabinets doesn’t mean you’re not satisfied. In fact, it means the exact opposite. Like raising children and watching them grow and develop, making upgrades shows how much you care about having your home grow with you.
2. You visualize the future in it – children growing up, moving out then visiting you in that same house
If you sit in the backyard on a summer afternoon and daydream about your six-year-old bringing her friends over in ten years, or bringing her own kids over in twenty (or thirty) years, it’s a sign you love your home.
3. You make sure it’s in top shape, attending to repairs immediately
If anything goes wrong, you make sure to address it as soon as possible. You’re in it for the long haul so leaving problems unattended for the next owner is not an option. Upkeep takes time and money and, just like home improvement projects, doing it is a sign that you mean to take care of this house and want to stay there for the long term.
4. Walking in the door calms you down after a tough day
Having your dwelling bring out the best in you and relax you after a tough week makes the difference between a house and a home. If your home has a positive effect on your mood and you look forward to returning every night, it’s a sign you love your home.
5. Your fondest memories are there
Of course, home is about more than just the building. Family makes it all worthwhile and relationships are what make life worth living. Look back at the photos from the last few years. Besides vacation pictures, if the majority of your everyday photos were taken at home, it’s a sign that your best memories are being made there.
