Life Changes: Predict Your Housing Needs

Life Changes: Predict Your Housing Needs

Looking ahead, what does home mean to you? By determining your future housing needs now, you position yourself to seize market opportunities and discover communities that resonate with your lifestyle.

To begin the process, start by asking yourself the following questions. Then, book a consultation and lets start planning ahead.

What will your family look like in 3-5 years? Will there be a new addition to your family? Will you have kids that are grown up and about to move out? What is the possibility that an elderly relative (mom, dad or grandparent) will be living with you?

What will change regarding work and school? Will a teenager be off to college? Will you or your spouse be retired? Will someone in your household be starting a home business?

How will your lifestyle be different? Will you take up a hobby that you’d like to be able to reach easily (such as golf)? Do you see yourself wanting to live closer to shopping, theatre, walks in the woods, etc.? Will you eventually be traveling more often and, therefore, not be at home as much?

How is the neighbourhood changing?
Where is it heading relative to your future needs in terms of residents, noise, sense of community, local developments, etc.? Do you see yourself wanting to live in a quieter community, or a more urban centre?

What are your dreams? Do you dream of living in a particular neighbourhood? Would you love to have a big backyard with a garden someday, or a chef’s kitchen? Do you think it would be great to have a wooded park with walking trails just a few minutes away?

Start designing your future today, and reap the rewards tomorrow!
