When it comes to property we can all have different ideas of what we want to do. Some of us work incredibly hard to get on the property ladder and are incredibly proud of our homes. But I also think that many of us will have some from of property dream, one that we might want to live now, or one for the future. I wanted to share with you some of the popular ones people may have.
Building your own house
One of the biggest dreams I think people can have when it comes to property is to build their own home. Imagine having that creative freedom to design the layout of your home? From where the cupboards are to where the walls will go. It certainly can be a dream you turn into a reality as more people are considering this option. It can start with having the expertise of Contemporary Architects to help design your vision. Finding the right plot of land in the right area to build your dream. Getting the relevant permissions and having the funding in place. It is no longer the pie dream as so many people are making this their reality.
Renovating a property
Building a property might be a stretch too far for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t design and change home. Renovating a property is also high on the list with people when it comes to property. It might be that you extend and change the layout that way, knock walls down and create more open plan living, and design the interior. Renovating can be a lot of work, but completely worth it in the long term.
Changing the use of a building
Ever spotted a shop or building that seems out of place where it is? If it ever comes up for sale you could change its use. Many people have a dream of converting old churches into residential building, shops into homes, or even switching houses and making them into little cafes or restaurants. Changing the use of a building does require some sort of permission and guidance but it can be the ideal way to create something spectacular.
Buying to rent out
Maybe your dream is to have a property portfolio. You like the idea of having properties that you can earn an income from and renting out could be the answer. Some people combine renovation with this. Finding a rundown property, renovating it to a good standard and then renting out until the time comes to sell it and move on.
Finding your forever home
Finally, your dream might just be simple. It might be that you just want to find that forever home. The one where you can have animals in your back garden like chickens and sheep. Maybe you want to grow vegetables or have fields of your children to play in. Maybe your forever home is city living or in a different country entirely. More people than most will have a desire to find their forever home, it is more common than you think.
I hope that this has given you something to think about when it comes to your property dreams. What are yours?
