Most homebuyers have a “dream house” that includes everything they want, whether it’s a new kitchen, open floor plan, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms or all that and more.
So, how can you buy your dream house, whether you are in your 40s, 50s or 60s?
The answer might be as simple as deciding to go for it, says Tom Page, vice president of iStar, a community developer in Richmond, Va., and general manager of Magnolia Green, a residential community in Moseley, Va.
“When people are buying in their 20s and 30s, there’s a dream house that they’d like, but they can’t afford it,” Page says. “In their 40s and 50s, they’ve got the money, and they say, ‘Let’s go buy that nice house.’“
