At Lake & City Homes our tagline is "Homes that fit your lifestyle". Because a home's architecture can impact the way someone lives, we think it's important for homebuyers to identify the lifestyle they have or aspire to have as part of the process of shopping for a new home. A home's architecture can positively or negatively impact a person's lifestyle by virtue of a variety of factors. For example, if you like formal entertaining and the only way your guests can access the backyard is through one of the bedrooms, that floorplan may not be compatible with your lifestyle. You'd be better off with an open living/dining area and a floorplan that flows in a circular design through side and back doors to the backyard. If you like each room to have its own character, personality, and function you might prefer an older style home such as a colonial, bungalow or cape cod. Similarly, if you're keen believer in living green, such as having a small carbon footprint by supporting local growers and taking the bus to work or riding your bike, you'll want to target neighborhoods with a high WalkScore. If you prefer all your living on one level, you might gravitate toward ranch style homes rather than two stories or split levels. If you have a family member who lives with you year-round you may want to find a house with a separate "mother-in-law" suite, a 2-unit, or a house with a second kitchen (or the option of putting one in). If you've had enough of maintaining a home and caring for a yard, you might be ready to adopt a condo lifestyle where a lot of the work is done for you for a monthly fee.

Whatever your fancy, you can rest assured that a professional Realtor at Lake & City Homes will be happy to help you identify the lifestyle you're after, narrow your search criteria to pinpoint your target areas, and help you locate and go after just those "Homes that fit your lifestyle!".
