Dream Home Checklist: Wants and Needs

Dream Home Checklist: Wants and Needs

Chris Marshall is here to help you find the right home.  What is the lifestyle that you are looking for?  Is it entertaining? Is it travel? Is it maintenance free? Is it a big yard with a garden? Is it a house full of children? Close to schools or acreages of land? Downtown city life? A new neighbourhood with new amenities? An established neighbourhood with mature trees? A renovated house or a project to make your own? Is it close to public transportation?

Home Location

  • Address - 

    Urban – The big city. Sure the prices are generally higher, but you can walk to a restaurant, maybe even to work. You’ll also have the widest range of housing options.

    Suburban -Newer schools, newer shopping centers, bigger yards, bigger homes, no wonder so many people love the suburbs. But if you work in the city, be prepared for lots of rush hour traffic. It’s a packaged deal.

    Smaller Cities and Towns – There are many wonderful self-contained communities, and compared to the big city, you can save a bundle.

    Rural -If you like the idea of owning land, how about a few acres all to yourself? Seclusion is not for everybody, but for some, it’s heaven.
