Real Estate Junkie

It seems “Virginia Is For Lovers,” at least when it comes to me and their real estate. This week is focused on affordable housing, because, lets face it, most of us are not millionaires. The house you are about to see has a quirky exterior with a gem of an interior. The inside of the house was not as I expected it to be at all; it is modern, open, with great lighting. This house is a perfect one to own given its unique qualities.

 

These 3 bedrooms’ and, 3 baths’ were meant for outdoor lovers’ who will drive their boat in the marinas. It is placed on 2 acres with a community pooled just around the corner. The plus to a community pool is that you don’t have to deal with the maintenance of your own pool, which gives you much more time for that boat of yours. Your porch is in need of some sweet tea and lounging of course, done by you. I know porches always get me so, I thought I’d include something from the original listing, “12 x 15 Screened Porch with lovely natural views over the headwaters.” One patio and, an enclosed porch is amazing especially if you want to have family over for a big dinner outdoors and, don’t want to get eaten up by bugs.

This is one of my favorite rooms because it not only, has some of the coolest doors but, it has a fireplace. A fireplace is so important for a home, at least for me, because it gives it an extra cozy feeling. The house has creek views, a master bedroom with a walk-in closet, storage space, and a car port. If a garage is important to you, I don’t see why you couldn’t build one especially with 2 acres.

The kitchen area is serene and, it seems to open onto the back screened in porch. I enjoy when a kitchen has space for bar stools as well as, a little table for your family to enjoy their meal although, I would be on the patio in the summer and, by the fireplace in the winter but, that’s just my preference.

I thought for the last photo I would show the only picture they include out of the three bedrooms. I would have to see all of the bedrooms to compare but, I enjoy this space as it is one of the most important spaces. My bedroom is my space to work, wind down, and curl up with a book so, I think your connection and vibes should be strong when choosing your space. If you do not have good vibes and, purchase a home there will always be something not right with it, remember to go with your gut.

Real Estate Junkie

Hello, my name is Allie and I am a real estate junkie. Oh my, the amount of time I could spend looking at Real Estate is, infinite. I don’t know what it is about real estate but, I love it. It may be the possibility of living in many places or, the history behind the walls. Now, I don’t enjoy all real estate in fact, I want to own many different kinds of real estate. I think there is something to be said about having a family home where all of your relatives can come to on special occasions or long summers. I want to eventually own an estate to use on occasion and then turn it into a rental space, or other things, “I have a few ideas in mind depending upon where it is.” Right now I am looking at real estate a little closer to home that I may want to own, rent out, air b and b, or have bed and breakfast in the next ten years. The real estate is not cheap and, may not even be available but, I am hoping to have he money to gobble up a few prime spots in many different destinations. I am a big fan of unique properties that have a decent amount of acreage and are not too close to other houses. Having farm land is an advantage especially if I were to have a bed and breakfast so, we would have fresh produce to eat/cook. A house that I would actually like to live in would be very different, maybe a converted barn or something to that extent. I would want to live in a medium sized house with the option of having a few larger houses where my family could gather and enjoy each others company. Right now I am no where near being able to afford a home let alone multiple homes. I am currently at my parents house and, I’m ok with that for now until my businesses start to pick up a larger income. I plan on taking what I earn save, invest in a property, and travel. I think traveling is very important and, it may give me an idea of how I want to live once I am on my own. I have defiantly been bitten by the travel bug and, I want to visit as many places as I possibly can. When I’m traveling I would like to blog and vlog about the places I am staying and my experiences.  I think it would be awesome if I got a chance to stay at properties in other countries and explore the way their houses etc. were built and, the history behind them. I am a true real estate junkie because I watch documentaries of the history of how palaces, and important architectural structures were made. I find it fascinating that we are walking the same steps of others who have come before us. Real Estate has been such an important part of history an, was often gifted by royalty to those who did favors for them. By doing a favor for a queen or king it may have also, earned you a title that you would not have gotten unless you were blood related to a person of a title. All of these structures have held people of great importance and, some of which their importance is unknown. Do you ever get the overwhelming feeling of how much history has taken place on the floor you now step on. That is one of the reasons I am so addicted to real estate and, the promise of the memories I can add to the home. I think the next place I will be looking in is NYC- I think I’m going to take a peek at Brooklyn and, where I could imagine myself. If you are looking for a place in Brooklyn let me know in the comments and, in my next post I will have some real estate options/links. Woohoo Brooklyn here we come! Should this be N.Y.C. month? Let me know in the comments if I should write about all the areas in N.Y.C. and, what I see about the next up and coming neighborhood. I do have to say that it seems almost all areas of N.Y.C. are up and coming these days….

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
