The idea of starting home-shopping all over again may cause you to break out in hives. Or you may already be looking for the next upgrade.
For some of us, our first home is our forever home. But we know many people who upgrade, downgrade, or move-laterally every few years. There's nothing wrong with either strategy or to something in between. We like to tell our clients that "All Real Estate Is Investment Real Estate". Barring any personal reason that binds you to a home, you should view your home purchase as in investment, and if the returns - after all "friction" costs associated with selling - are positive, then no move-frequency is to often. If you and your family can handle the stress - and you're accounting accurately for that cost in the equation as well, then move as often as you like!
For some of us, we love the idea of bringing our grandkids back to the home that we raised our children in. But some of us want a simpler life as we age. For others, we are called away from our homes more frequently due to jobs or life changes.
In the end, your house becomes a home because of the people who live inside of it, so you can move anywhere - frequently - and still have a warm and welcoming home. Or you can stay where you are now, for the rest of your life, and you won't be missing a thing if the people you love are close by.
So when you are ready to buy again, we'll be here for you. And if that time never comes, we'll still be friends. We hope that everyone finds a home that is full of happiness and love - that starts with Integrity, that is built on Diligence, and that ends in Service.
