What does it mean?
The questions above show the relationship to our values and ideals. It is important to honor ourselves when we purchase a home. Read below to see how your answers relate to your home buying experience.
1. The person you are walking with is the most important person in your life. You should get their opinion and have them be a part of your home buying decisions.
2. The size of your dream home is representative of the size of your ambition for the home. For example, if it is a small cottage, you may want to consider a home that is move-in ready. The bigger the home, the more projects you are willing to undertake.
3. No fence is indicative of an open home. People are welcome at all times. You would want to have a home that allows for visitors and company. The presence of a fence is more indicative of a private home. You would prefer people to not drop by unannounced. This matters for your home buying decision. Either way, pay close attention to location, layout, size, and amenities. Make sure they tie in with your desire for company vs. your private palace.
4. If your answer did not include food, people, or flowers then you are a homebody. Your home is just for you and no one else. If your answer did include any of the above, other people, factors, situations influence your decision and the type of home that would make you feel comfortable.
