Happy couple in love in their new home

Finding Love is Like Find the Perfect Home

You may not realize it, but finding the perfect Boston luxury home is actually a lot like find the perfect mate!

Finding true love and finding a home you will truly love, both start with you looking for something that will be in your future.  Like dating, when you search for a new home, you go searching for something attractive, comfortable, and even sexy.  There are certain criteria or conditions to be met like size/heart, how many rooms/weight, date built/age, updated appliances/nip-tuck, missing shingles/hair loss, etc.

Each home has its upside and downside just like each date.  Is it a warm place/does he have heart?  Are there too many stairs/is she understanding?  Can I hear the neighbors through the walls/is he listening to me?

So you keep searching and dating, then finally, you find it!  The perfect Boston home and the perfect person.

If you need help find a Back Bay condo or Beacon Hill condo, or want to tour luxury homes for sale on Boston’s Waterfront or North End, contact CL Waterfront Properties LLC.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
