One of the questions your real estate agent may ask you when they list your property is; what did you like most about your house? If you can take a minute and think about more than just the hardware of your house but really try and remember all the activities and fun that were a big part of your life in your home, you may have a lifestyle property.
What does that mean, lifestyle property? Simply, it means a property that is perfect for a way of life or living. Traditionally, it speaks to immediate amenities. For instance, if your home were located on a golf course or by a tennis court, it would be perfect for people who enjoyed golf and tennis as a major activity in their life, year round. Or if your home had a dock that would certainly attract people who enjoy the water and would like to have their own boat right in their back yard.
However, just because you don’t have a golf course or a dock, doesn’t mean you don’t have a lifestyle property. A home with a large well-appointed kitchen and spacious dining room, or a patio and garden around a pool, or a beautiful back yard might be a home that was the sight of endless family get togethers and entertaining with neighbors and friends. Opening your home to others and enjoying cooking and entertaining IS a lifestyle for many people. It’s what they do every weekend, holiday, and anytime they can. They get a lot of pleasure out of it, so they do it often. That is their lifestyle, their way of living, and your home could be their dream come true.
