How To Know What Your Dream Home Looks Like

by racheal

Magazines and the Internet are loaded with dream homes and no wonder because everybody is chasing that dream of owning their own home. The only problem is the articles on the net and in magazines only talk about the writer’s dream home and not yours, after all each of us have a different dream. Different people have different tastes and each person’s likes differ. For some a dream home will be a multimillion dollar home with marbled tiles, white shag carpeting, and all expensive decors. For some it may be a spa bathroom and professional style kitchen and yet for others it may be a small cozy place to retire.

So before you start the process of buying your dream home, take a moment for a reality check. Realize how much time you actualy spend in your home and jot down the needs you have and also plan a budget for your new home. 

Say you like cooking then you can have a large kitchen with bright appliances and a huge eating area. If you are not an expert cook then you need a less advanced kitchen with minimum items, as you wouldn’t be spending much time there. For those of you who love to be pampered, a spa type bathroom may be ideal. You can have a jacuzzi tub, multi shower or rain shower heads, a sky light, adjustable ambient lighting, and even heated towel bars or floors. Nowadays the latest trend is eco-friendly homes; even vogue magazine has an article spread about eco-friendly homes. Installing solar panels for water heating and electricity or have a garden so that you own a green home. 

All these facts should be taken into consideration while you are planning to buy your dream home. Whether you are building your dream home or buying an already built home, see to it that all your requirements are met. Make a list of your necessities and then enjoy the search for your dream home.

New Homes Construction On A Rise In Edmonton!

by racheal

According to the Edmonton Home Builders Association, home builder companies are experiencing a rise in new homes being built in Edmonton, Canadian a province of Alberta. Builders have seen a 50 per cent increase in the number of people visiting show homes in the past three months. This translating into home sales, which equals a demand for new homes to be built.

The association vice president, Sandra Young said Thursday; "Some of it's pent-up demand, right, because it hasn't been any sales for almost six months, or very very low numbers in sales for six months ... some of it is people realizing that now is a good time to buy, because pricing is good," said Young. Young also explained that prices have dropped more than 20 per cent since the height of the boom two years ago when builders flooded the market with inventory, but now that supply has been sold off, and builders are again constructing.

"We're just a much leaner and meaner machine, so to speak, and we've got house prices out there today that are 22 per cent lower than they were in November of 2007 plus the carrying costs, and when I say carrying costs that's the mortgage rates," executive vice president Jim Sirup of Jayman MasterBuilt Inc. This is a huge turn around for Jayman MasterBuilt Inc since the downturn in new home construction in Edmonton when they had to lay off about 50 people.

Jayman MasterBuilt Inc, one of the largest new home builders, that are seeing a rise in sales with many other new home builders in Edmonton.
