Shopping for a home is a lot like dating. When we look for a mate, we want them to be a bit attractive – and if not, at least hold a bit of potential when it comes time to renovate. We might go on dozens of dates before finding that one person who we feel is perfect for us, might have even been made for us; just like we go to dozens of open houses before finally stepping into the parlor of our dream home. Certain features might draw us to the other sex, just like some house-hunters have a soft spot for quirky features like turrets and wrought-iron spiral staircases.
There is no simple way to find your dream home. We like to think that we are logical when deciding on something as crucial as where we want to raise a family or settle down and retire. But sometimes the littlest things can make our heart melt.
