Is It Time to Buy Your Forever Home?

July 9, 2023
Published by

Starter homes are where you dip your toes into the real estate market and experience the perks of owning your own home. Inevitably, you will outgrow this home, whether in the size of your family or simply the things you would like to have in a home but don’t. A forever home, on the other hand, is the kind of home you can imagine living in for the rest of your life. If you’re considering purchasing one of the homes in Vancouver WA to be your potential forever home we have an array of floor plans with options to help you find the ideal home.

First off, don’t think that a forever home has to be your one and only home for the rest of your life. Life happens, and today’s concept of a forever home is a bit more elastic, referring to a home you’re likely to live in for a decade or more. Rather than feeling pressure about choosing a “forever” home, look for one that you can imagine living in for years to come, focusing on what you need now in a home, but choosing one that has the flexible space to adapt to your changing needs over the years.

There is no specific age, financial bracket, career level or any other metrics that say when is the right time to buy a forever home. Some buyers will want a home earlier than others, with some choosing when the family is still young, while others wait closer to retirement as they become empty nesters and reevaluate just how much space and the type of layout they want in a home for the coming years. This is why we offer a number of floor plans that include the owner’s suite on the first floor, to enable your home to meet your needs comfortably for years to come.

If you are thinking of purchasing a forever home, it’s important to focus on the specifics you want in a home you may live in for the rest of your life. The owner’s suite on the main floor could be just such a feature, as well as a single-story home, limiting the hassle of stairs as you get older. You may want more rooms to be able to host growing families for the holidays, or rooms that can be dedicated to hobbies you’d like to focus on now or in the future. You also want to look carefully at the neighborhood or community, deciding whether you’ll want easy access to daily needs, or if you prefer something more rural and set apart. You need a home that will work for you now, but will also be the type of home you can imagine living in safely and comfortably as you get older.

Ultimately, think about what you need and can afford now, particularly if you’re looking at purchasing a home where you can imagine living for years to come. That’s why we build our homes in Vancouver WA with appealing standard floor plans. In addition, we offer a number of options to help you tailor the home to your personal needs and preferences, as well as the flex rooms and bonus spaces we include that let your home adapt to your lifestyle for years to come, maybe even forever!
