Buying a new pair of shoes is relatively easy. Once you find the style
you like, all you need to do is try them on and see if they fit. If they do,
you go to the cash register and pay.
When it comes to size, buying a new home can be trickier! Whether
your intention is to upsize or downsize, figuring out the right size can
be especially challenging.
Say for example, you’re downsizing from a large two-story home to a
smaller bungalow. You don’t want to underestimate the space you need
and end up in a place that feels tight. If you’re going the other way and
upsizing, you don’t want to end up sinking extra money into a property
that’s larger than you really need.
So how do you avoid these scenarios?
One of the best ways is to start by considering your current home. Do
you use all the rooms in your home regularly? Is there a bedroom that’s
rarely occupied? Has the recreation room become simply a storage
area? If you’re downsizing, subtracting rooms you scarcely use can give
you a better idea of what you need in a new home.
Upsizing is a bit more challenging because you have to anticipate what you
will need in the future. For example, if you have young children, and your
place is feeling cramped, then a home with a recreation room or separate
family and living rooms may be a good idea. You may also need a bigger
kitchen with a spacious eating area (in addition to a separate dining room.)
Think about the extra room you’ll need and how you’ll use that space.
When I work with a client, I typically sit down with them and discuss the type
of home they want in detail — and, based on needs and circumstance, I
make expert recommendations. Bottom line, I help clients find the perfect fit
in a new home. Contact me if you’d like to learn more.

Is your home office the dining room table? Is it anywhere you can sit
down undisturbed with your laptop? If so, you might be interested in
converting a room or nook into a dedicated home office. Depending
on what you do for a living, there could be a tax advantage to
creating this space too.
The first step is to pick a spot. Ideally, you want an area where you
can work without too many distractions.
Next, make sure the spot you’ve chosen can accommodate a desk
and any other furnishings you’ll need. Think about what you want
within easy reach of your work area. Will you need a place for books
and other papers? An extra chair for client meetings? A flipchart? A
filing cabinet? Think about all of the options in advance.
Then, you’ll want to make sure the spot you picked has the electrical
outlets you need, especially if you’re going to have a printer, special
lighting, a computer and other items that need power.
Finally, you’ll want your home office to be a place where you can enjoy
working. So decorate it with that in mind. If you like plants, get plants.
If you enjoy golf, have your golf trip pictures hanging on the wall.
With a little work, you can quickly create a home office space that is
comfortable, functional and enjoyable. It sure beats the dining room!
