The world is neither standing still nor perfect. These days, there are no borders that limit us to getting to where we want to be, except the ones we put up ourselves. Put simply, our ideals to live in this world are both simple and complex - different - in ways wherein we look for a place where we belong and still call it a place of our own. 

That is the sense of being having a home affords us. For many people, it is an extension of who they are. It is the setting where they built, and are continuously building, a lifetime of memories welcoming family, inviting friends, and entertaining guests. It is more than just a place of permanent residence, but a safe space - a refuge - we long for whenever we're away. It is a space that brings us closer to understanding who we are individually and in relation to living with other human beings. With this in mind, is it ever any wonder that we sometimes lose ourselves when we don't know where our home is or have been away from it for too long? 

Before you could ask yourself, "Where is home for me?" you first have to know these three important things.

What kind of house would make me happy?  

Knowing what kind of house would make you happy sounds simple enough. But, in reality, identifying what makes a space an ideal living place can be overwhelming. Do you see yourself living in a condominium, a house, or are you more into townhomes? The key is knowing what comforts, conveniences, and features you want.

Where is home for me?
Once you know what your ideal house looks like, decide where you'd like this house to be located. This is an exciting step wherein you're visualizing yourself living in different areas within a city that embraces you or a place you've always wanted and imagined yourself living in. If you're having a hard time deciding, Signet Properties is a one-stop online platform that can help you narrow down the choices and transition into buying your future home.

How do I turn my house into a home?

Now that you've got your own place, it's time to make it more personal - more your own safe space. Make this home a place where you can collect memories, nurture your family or even start one. Make it so everyone who enters your home knows they are safe within its walls and are more connected to its residents - make it so that whenever you're home, you'd wish time is standing still because even when the world is not perfect, you've found a place to call your own that's close enough to perfect for you. 

As the famous poet and human rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou once said, "The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned," may you always cherish your home for all that it is and all that it stands for in your life.
