On Wednesday we talk about wealth and this home in Idaho Springs will certainly help you build wealth. 40 minutes from the city and mountains, Idaho has experienced a lot of growth in the past few years resulting in not enough housing for residents. The city regulations welcome creative solutions to the housing situation such as ADIs and airbnbs. This home would serve as a great long or short term rental or if you lived in it, an ADU may be added to the garage. Whatever you choose to do, Idaho Springs is set up to see more growth and development in the coming years.
Does your home have a name? Ours do somewhat, although, they aren’t particularly creative. I refer to one as “The Blue House” since it used to have blue carpets and blue countertops. While the others are called by their street name. Borrrrrring…
This article makes an argument to name your home. “Once reserved for grand estates and castles, house naming is a much more casual affair these days thanks to social media. House names can be like Twitter names or vanity license plates: Another place to define your identity and communicate your personality and humor.” If you are drawing a blank on what to name your home, this fun name generator could help (or serve as a laugh).
Still on the fence? “The survey undertaken for the property website Globrix, found that one in 14 said they would be prepared to pay more for a home just because it had a name. Even those that were not prepared to pay more said their opinion of the property would improve, with 40 per cent saying they would be more interested in viewing a property with a name.” I am not surprised by this fact. The book, Tell to Win reminds readers that we are all emotional transporters and to market ourselves, a service or product we must convey a story that evokes emotion to make an impression with the consumer or public. A home with a name will immediately convey emotion to potential buyers.
It is no secret that we bought a home in Downtown Littleton that we are slowly renovating. I termed it the “Downtown Littleton Project” and have written about it here and here and here. Since “Downtown Littleton Project isn’t the most exciting name for a home, I used the name generator and was provided with a number of different options: “White Fenceside”, “Peonies House”, “Front Porch View” and “Rabbit’s House”. All of these options certainly paint a better picture of the home and certainly make it more welcoming.
So, now the question is, what are you going to name your home?
