Yes, I admit it. I am a real estate junkie. Residential real estate, specifically. I dream about it and all aspects of it. Buying it, owning it, maintaining it, improving it. The architecture, the neighborhood, the sense of place that only a home can bring to life in a very tangible way.
I've certainly experimented with other financial investments in my life and have found them to be as unpredictable as real estate prices, but with none of the comfort and joy a home can bring. More later on the best expereinces I've had over the years selling and finding homes.
