#701 Home is not a place but a feeling..


Picking out a new house can be exciting and terrifying at the same time, especially when you also might be choosing a new location to live. So how do you choose? What if the house has problems you can't afford to fix? What’s the tiebreaker if you love two places equally?
The first and only way to begin the decision-making process is to grab your calculator. A dream home becomes a nightmare the moment you can't afford it. “As you calculate, look beyond the listing price,” Look at what the repayments will be when and if the interest rates go up say (3x, 4x even). Can you afford it..
When looking for a place to live, you need to as my mother used to say, take off those rose coloured glasses. Look at the heating, cooling of the house, for eg: A house with vaulted ceiling costs more to heat than one with a low ceiling. A house with a pool means paying to maintain it, or spending your weekends scrub scrub, scrub. All these extra factors can add up.

So what is it that makes a home a home.. It is a feeling. This is where the rose coloured glasses definitely come off. It is a sensation of peace on a cozy rainy Sunday, imagining yourself tucked up on my favourite chair watching the rain drip down the glass window, the feeling of relief when you pull into the driveway after a long trip; a quiet kiss on the head of a baby asleep in my lap; the warmth of my partner’s arms as we soak up the sun outside, the dog sitting in his favourite place.

Home has been many places for me over the years, but its comforts are defined by simple, blissful moments like these...
