I've been thinking a lot lately about where I would like to live if I ever got the chance to move. Not that I'm unhappy with our home right now-I actually love our location-but, every once in a while I get the fancy to maybe move some place new. For most of my life, I've lived on the east coast, but now we're in the midwest. So, of course the next location I thought of was on the west coast. Like, maybe looking at homes in Los Angeles. Then again, maybe I'd prefer Colorado or Texas...who knows! No matter where I dream of moving, though, there are certain things that are a must-have for my home.
First of all, I definitely want a location that is relatively close to a city, but not actually in the city. I spent a short time living in an area that was very sparse. I had to travel an hour for the closest Wal-Mart, and if I felt the urge for fast food, the nearest Wendy's was literally over 4 hours away! No, I am not joking. That is an experience I do not want to go through again! So when shopping for a new home, location is maybe not everything, but definitely a biggie.
Another big seller on a home for me would be the size and layout of the kitchen. I would prefer a home with a bar in the middle of the kitchen, and plenty of counter and storage space. With the amount of people in our family, I need a lot of room for baking and cooking!
One aspect that isn't absolutely necessary, but would be a big seller for me, is an extra room for a study/library. Something I could just line with bookshelves, and fill up with all my beloved books! At this point, I have books stacked in a closet, just because I don't have enough room for more bookshelves anywhere. So while it is not something that I have to have, finding a house with enough room for a couple more bookshelves would make it a sure sell!
