 In our NEW Informed Sellers Guide, we ask the question of our potential clients to write 10 reasons “Why I love my Home and
neighbourhood?” In 2015 I wrote about Etobicoke neighbourhoods and why we love them best.

Pinterest has a board of 722 best why I love my house images. It’s inspiring to look at these images and envision them in your home. There’s a blog by the Frugal Homemaker that shows the 20 reasons why she loves her home and they are getting ready to move next year.

Quoted in an essay by unknown “For me, happiness starts from my home and ends at my home.” Well, why is that?

The main reason we ask is to find out from the home seller why they have loved living there. What is their story? For a home buyer, this can be important information. They are looking for a home to grow with and a neighbourhood to feel safe and comfortable in. What is it that made the Seller live there for so long?

For the home :

where was your favourite room to read? What happens to the home in each season? What are the warm spots and cold spots? Bell or Rogers stories? Best fireplace or  Oven mishap? Celebrations! Handyman or woman for all the different adventures, plumbing, electrical, renos, tiling, painting, roof, and eavestrough…

For the neighbourhood:
Where did they like to go for outdoor time and activities? Where is the best shopping or grocery store and why? What churches and schools were like? Who likes pets and who doesn’t? Where are the closest dog parks? Are there any Book clubs or social activities like street parties? Who is the go-to IT guy or gal on the block?

 What is your story?

We have lived in many of the hoods in Etobicoke. Princess Gardens is where we grew up, Eatonville then Princess Ann Manor. Now Humber Heights. And each neighbourhood has its best routes to major Highways, stores etc. Where to avoid traffic? Where to get the best take out, where to find your favourite coffee spot, friendliest bar, convenient gym for workouts, dog walks, Jogging or cycling trails. Baby strolling sidewalks? Auto repair or body shops you trust? Cheapest Gas or best for Tim’s and fill up.

I hope this helps you fill out our sheet so that everyone can get the most out of it. Just do not fall in love with your house again and start the discussion of “Why are we moving” again. That will just disrupt the whole process. Your next focus should be what are we getting rid of as in clutter and Furniture to make room for all the people who want to buy your old home.

So when you get your guide and get to this page in it “Describe 10 things you love most about your home or neighbourhood.” this is our guide on how to answer it, that is if you need any help at all.

Disclaimer: This Blog is not intended to get you to sell your home or to make you fall back in love with it. But…
