Location, Location, Location

Is this where I want to be?

Consider your location before you decide to
renovate. Are you in the right location? Should
you be across the street? You cannot move the
mountain, but you could move to the other side of the
mountain to get better sun, be closer to the school
your kids go to, perhaps even closer to your favourite
cafe so you do not have get in the car in the weekend
to go for brunch. It may seem like trivial things but
what we are trying to successfully create is an overall
enjoyment of your whole life. To that end your home
and ultimately the location of it is a huge factor in
achieving this.

You hear about life coaches, and I believe having
the right home is very important for creating the
life you desire and want. It is well worth your money
to have a property evaluated by an architect prior
to purchasing it to confirm its renovation or
development potential.

A lot of older homes have the best locations, the
most established gardens, lets face it, they were
there first, and despite maybe being completely
run down and looking the worse for wear they
could have all the qualities that can be hard to
buy or build new.

A hundred year old tree is very hard to achieve over a
two-year period, whereas a beautifully renovation over
a two-year period is very realistic.
