Home Sweet Home! home sweet home

Home. 

Home Sweet Home!

So many different meanings, so many different memories and thoughts associated with the word.

Maybe you lived in lots of houses growing up, bouncing around the country, making memories wherever you were.  HOME is wherever the family was, the wood, brick and shingles making up the house were inconsequential, just a material vessel for creating the memories of times with your family and friends.  Knowing visits to relatives meant another road trip in the back of the family wagon!  Always knowing another move was just around the bend.

Or maybe, you NEVER moved.  All your family within 50 miles, generation after generation growing up with shared experience.  From infancy to striking out on your own, one single home, much MORE in your memory than just wooden sticks and bricks.  The progression of your growth marked in little pencil marks on the doorway, out in the yard is the tree with the tire swing, and over there is where Fido scratched the back door wanting out.

Either way, when it's time to sell your home, it's a big event.  You may have no ties to the house, it's just a commodity to you, OR it may be a very emotional time letting go.


We understand, and will do everything within our power to remove as much of the stress and the strain of selling your Warren County home, to allow you to quickly move forward and start making that next house HOME. 

The personal touch and compassion combined with powerful marketing, it's The Liz Spear Team specialty.

If you have any questions, please give The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite a call.  We'll be happy to help.

Anita, My dad was in the Army, then a construction office manager.  I'm description 1, always bouncing and moving. Got the itch to move if we stayed anyplace long.  Liz is description 2.  Most of her relatives are still within a fairly tight geography.  We can identify with both categories.  Bill

Roger, Power outages are no fun!  See you later!

Barbara, We've now been in our home for 19 years.  We've personalized it to the point almost nothing would seem the same to the original owners.  Most of our sellers have been of the been in the home 5-7 years type.

When I visited Germany I couple of years ago, I was awed how many generations still lived within a mile of their family...

Yes, it's a big decision - big investment + it's where you spend a lot of your time.  Important to make the right decision on the right realtor and no one's better in Warren than County than the Bliz team.

Bet that was inspired by your travels to see your family.  I have had a few clients in my time that have cried at the closing table as sellers because of the memories in the home they are selling.  Those are the clients where the closing gift is a pencil drawing of their home...to remember.

Paul, When you look at the age of the cities/villages, just amazing how much history there is relative to here in the States!

Debbie, Thanks for the endorsement!

Cindy, Yep, there just might be some personal history/observations in this one! :)  It's definitely a hard thing to leave a home...leaving a house is easy.

Liz & Bill - Home is definitely where my family is, big, small, old, new.  I still live in the first home I've purchased and I'm not sure if I can ever move.  This is where my boys are growing up.  Although I know some people who have zero problem picking up and moving, I've had several of those clients.

Michelle, We haven't had too many of the 20+ year sellers lately.  More in the five year or so range, family growing and need more room, or shrinking and want less room!  We never purchased until after the Navy time, so in our first home for 19+ years so far.

Jiggies, that's a good post -- I'm really feeling the need to have a new "nest" of my very own that absolutely no one can ever take away from my family!!!!  This is an excellent presentation; thanks.

BLiz - While I'm not a Realtor listing property, I can speak from personal experience that moving  (I've moved a lot) has always been an emotional and stressful experience.  Realtors who were attentive were so appreciated.

Donne, We try to keep the stress level low.  We can't totally eliminate it...okay, maybe a full price offer on the first showing on the first day on the market might do it :)

Liz & Bill, it is a very emotional time for some sellers. I've had some remove the door jamb to get that piece of wood with the kids heights on it. Other sellers can't leave fast enough because of bad memories like a separation. We Stagers like Realtors see it all.

It's strange that I would have landed in this profession -- I hate moving.  An agent that can empathize with the stress and emotions is so important.  Warren County, OH sellers are lucky to have the Liz Spear Team!

Cinnamon, Looks like you can relate also!

Dawn, No doubt, and would imagine the longer, the harder it will be for most.  All we can do is try to ease the transition as much as possible.

Being ex Military, we moved every 5 years until we retired.  I was amazed that people lived in their homes for years. I would imagine the longer one stays in their home, the more attached they become.
