In the Queen’s Christmas Broadcast for 2017 she talks about “home” and what it means to her and others.
“We think of our homes as places of warmth, familiarity and love. Of shared stories and memories which is perhaps this time of year why so many return to where they grew up. There is a timeless simplicity to the pull of home. For many, the idea of home reaches beyond a physical building. “
While Christmas is now over and we celebrate New Year’s Eve in a few days, many people are reflecting on what they’ve accomplished in 2017 and planning and goal setting for 2018. The sentiment of “home” exists because you have a physical structure in which to create those memories and feelings. Whether it’s a single family home, a duplex, townhouse, condo or another structure, the “home” that you make begins with a physical structure of some sort. For some, the thought of home ownership can be limiting and overwhelming. For me, I see it as empowering. Home ownership can open doors you never even thought of before, and help you build a nest egg for retirement and a passive income, even an inheritance for your children.
Be sure to follow the Dream Street Society in 2018 here on the blog, on Facebook and Instagram as we look at ways that your home can financially empower you. This idea goes beyond investment properties. That’s just one aspect of it. There are so many other ways to make your home earn income for you. As we close out 2017 and enter into 2018, if your goal is to buy or sell a home to help you achieve another goal, relocate for a job, buy an investment property, or simply learn how to make money on your existing home, then we need to stay connected. If you would like to contact us for further information or to have a specific discussion about your real estate needs, contact us here.
I would love to hear your goals for 2018 as it pertains to your “home”. Comment below and see who else has the same goals.
I wish for you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!
