There it is. That lovely saying…Home is where the heart is.
Long before I became a realtor, I loved houses….no, that’s not really correct…I loved homes. A home is a place for people to live whether it’s already been lived in or will be soon. A house…well a house can be any structure. As a realtor, I don’t know if I am unique in this..but every home I go into has a feeling to it. Sometimes it’s a happy home, and sometimes it’s not. I can walk into a home and say to myself…”divorce”, or “having a baby”, or something else. I generally keep these thoughts to myself as “knowing” the reason for the sale seems presumptuous even to me. Almost without exception I’m right. I don’t know if it’s a sixth sense or it’s a vibe a house puts out that most people just don’t pay attention to. But..for me, it’s always there.
I think a home absorbs the energy of the person(s) living there and even if the furnishing are long gone…something of the people who lived there gets left behind.
So, on Valentine’s Day, I am sending wishes and hopes that your home is filled with laughter, good friends, great loves, warm tidings and chocolate (dark for me but if you really think that milk chocolate is chocolate…well, it’s all yours).
And, if you haven’t found the home that you can fill with all the good energy you have coming to you…here’s a list of open houses today.
