After travelling for a number of months, we quickly realised that home is where you are. It’s more about designing the life that we want – and sometimes, plans change.
WELCOME TO SEASON 4 | EPISODE 58
Selling James Street – Saying goodbye to our forever home
with Rebeka Morgan
WHY WE DECIDED TO SELL OUR FAMILY HOME
I’ve bought and sold a lot of houses over the years and the decision to buy or sell has always been based on the needs and values of the family.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
Some of you might know that we put our family home on the market while we were overseas. James Street in Northcote was originally going to be our forever family home. We designed it in a style we both loved with stunning fixtures throughout – we adored that home! So in this episode, I’m talking about why we decided to sell, how the plans kept changing and the lessons learned from this process.
I talk about choosing the right real estate agent in your area and why it’s so important to build a good rapport with whoever you decide on. Selling can be a really emotional time, so finding someone you trust who understands your family’s needs is critical. I also discuss the different selling options and why we opted for expressions of interest with James Street and how this ended in a great result.
I also share some practical tips that work well when selling houses including styling, landscaping, and what to look out for in terms of the market. You can check out what we did on this specific project here!
Often we get so busy focusing on the next step that we forget to zoom out and think about the big picture planning. Having a family home isn’t just about the beautiful design and details, it’s about making it work for the people who live in it. Life happens, and it’s important to remember what really matters to you.
