make IT what YOU want

There are many advantages to owning a home, ranging from a solid investment to the place where you watch your family grow; however, my personal favorite is the freedom to make it your own. It doesn’t have to be perfect when you find it. In fact, sometimes it’s better if it’s not.

Don’t fret if the home that best fits you in the moment is missing something you wish it had or didn’t have. Live in the space for a while, then decide what you want to add, modify, or remove. Maybe you want a sunroom, but you don’t need a three-car garage. Covert the space! If it doesn’t have your dream garden, research plants that thrive in your area and start planting. Is that wall in the way, or maybe it’s missing, change it.

That’s the beauty of ownership. It’s yours! Play with colors, change the fixtures and hardware, or refinish the floors to discover their hidden beauty. Add a pool to float in or fill it in to create a putting green. Plant your favorite tree and grow with it.
