We go through seasons in nature: spring, summer, autumn and winter. We also go through seasons of life: single, couple, family, and retiree.
Do you recognise the current and upcoming seasons of your life?
It is the same with the need for our home. Our need for our home also goes through life cycles. When you are a single person, your home needs would be different from when you have a growing family or when you are a retiree.
Homeowners are often forced to move home whenever they go through different seasons and phases of their lives. This causes stress and financial burden, especially in this economic climate.
Even if you bought your house say 10-20 years ago, and your house value has gone up to double or triple your buying price if you sell it, you still need to buy another house to move into.
So… what are your options?
- If you decide to move to the same area where you lived, the new or renovated house would be more expensive. Can you afford the more expensive price tag?
- If you decide to move to a bigger or newer house, you need to move further away from the established suburbs which require longer commute time to and from work and school. Is that a desirable solution?
- If you are downsizing and plan to move to the same area, you probably can find a new house with smaller land in exchange for your old house and bigger land. Is it worth the exchange? Plus, newer houses on a small plot of land are hardly single-storey, which doesn’t suit downsizers who plan to retire and grow old in their home.
Those options above are what most homeowners will face every time they go through different seasons and phases of their lives.
That’s why, at Studio M514, we develop a concept of designing and building a home, called SMALL. We believe there is a better way to design your home so you don’t have to be forced to move home every time the seasons of your life change.
