I’m so addicted to looking into homes, well, not physically looking into homes but virtually. I’m constantly looking into real estate websites so I can see inside everyone’s home. Is that weird? I don’t know but it sure is fun!
This is what I look for when I virtually peep:
- I like to see how the home is built.
- Does it have an open concept design?
- What colors do they have in the home?
- Is it staged properly?
- Do they have updated appliances?
- Do they have proper window treatments? Updated furniture?
- Is that TV over the fireplace (ugggg)
- Do they STILL have Contractor’s Beige?
Here is a home for sale that is one of Waxhaw’s best. It’s located on 6020 Hathaway Lane in Waxhaw, North Carolina. It has 7 bedrooms, 7 baths and is listed just under $2,000,000. That’s a whole lot of house!
I always get goose pimply when I see these large luxury homes because I just want to jump in and design a color scheme for the new homeowner. I myself am a homeowner of just 6 years also here in Waxhaw so I know all about the stress and worries when moving into a home and choosing color should not be one of them.
I would be more than happy to choose color for this home. Here’s a color palette that just may work. What do you think?
I am sooo guilty of real estate peeping! They say it is like porn for women 🙂
LoL – you’re probably right Kelly! So many houses, so little time 🙂
love it! me too! it’s like window shopping. so fun 🙂
Ok I’m so glad someone else does this! All of my housemates think I’m such a weirdo for being addicted to property websites but there’s nothing better than perusing properties from all over the world!
It seems that many people are coming out of the closet when it comes to real-estate peeping. It’s like being a fly on the wall 🙂
I know! I love it when there are floor plans too, then I start thinking about how I would decorate.. 😀
I like trying to find the decorating faux pas and there have been some doozies! I think my favorite is to look at the million dollar homes to see how the other half lives. Oddly enough, I find that the smaller homes, like a 4,000 sq., will be decorated more “tastefully” than a much larger home. Not sure if they just loose the decor scale or run out of time and money. I’ll keep researching though 😉
You know what, I completely agree! I love looking at insane houses, but mostly they have really tacky looking faux-period decor that I’m not much of a fan of, or they seem really impersonal!
My personal favorites are live/work loft spaces or log cabins – I’m such a sucker for mezzanine floors
