Home is where the heart is, but what if your heart does not know where it should be what do you do?

Building your home is an exciting and at times overwhelming experience. You have to play an active role in your home building process to ensure you end up with “YOUR” dream home.

Here are three basic tips for building your home:

  • When choosing the right community to live in, consider the local services available to you such as shopping, transport, education and childcare. These facilities and any other that affects your quality of life like sporting, recreation and entertainment facilities.
  • When choosing a block, make sure its size suits both your budget and the house design you have in mind. Check for height or setback restrictions, and consider the energy saving options.
  • Research and inquire to find a reputable builder you can trust.

Begin by determining what is most important to you and your family. If you are single, living in a bustling city might be an ideal choice for your next home. If you have a family, on the other hand, settle in a location that has amenities cater to the needs of the entire family. Proximity is key.

Here are four good reasons why you should own a home:

A PLACE FOR THE FAMILY

Family time suffers when you live in a block of flats for instance, with many other neighbours. Your neighbours can frown at events that include group of people, loud music, and actually anything that makes a good festivity.

This is why owning your home would fit in perfectly with your lifestyle.

 

 

AFFORDABILITY

No matter what your pay grade is, over time you would realise that it costs more to rent than it does to build your own house. Especially if you intend to live comfortably. A luxury apartment in a megacity like Lagos will cost you an arm and a leg. However, there are more affordable options like this that gives you comfort and luxury for less.

LANDLORD STRESS

Every time your rent is due or you have too many visitors in your house, the first person who comes knocking at your door is your Landlord. Moreover, when this becomes a frequent occurrence, it starts to get on your nerves, and before you know it, you start looking for the next place to move in to and that cycle repeats itself.

So why not take that step, live a healthier, and stress free life.

SECURITY

Living in a rented apartment may not give you the adequate security that you need, seeing as the rate of armed robbery is on the rise.

But in your own home, you have the choice of putting up cameras, alarms, electric fencing and even a security guard. That way you can sleep with both eyes shut

If you have always dreamed of living in your own home, there is no moment like the present to make that dream come true.
