Trading Homes

Building a home is everyone's dream, whether you agree with me or not. At any rate, people dream of owning a home one day, and a stupendous one at that, after all, dreaming is free and there is no limit to it. Lately, building homes is not just for purposes of having a comfortable place…

Building a home is everyone's dream, whether you agree with me or not. At any rate, people dream of owning a home one day, and a stupendous one at that, after all, dreaming is free and there is no limit to it.

Lately, building homes is not just for purposes of having a comfortable place to stay where the entire family can grow and where the kids will have a better place to roam around. Homes are not furnished with priceless items such as antique decors that flew from the east and carpets that had to come from Persia or tapestries that were part of a Brazilian antiquities collection just for visual play. Homes nowdays are an epitome of class and price. Some that command tags that are way above most people's wildest imaginations.

Consider the estate of the estranged couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston that dropped the jaws of many with a $ 22.5 million price tag. Rumors had it that after the fantasy soured out, the estate was reportedly marketed at $ 25 million. Hefty, was not it? Think for a moment about Bill Gate's estate with taxes alone that reached a jaw-dropping $ 1.063 million dollars! Now that should be one very expensive house. True enough, his house in Lake Washington in Medina, Washington was estimated in 2009 at a whopping $ 147.5 million. Can it get any better than that? But what is the motivation of homeowners to even think about building homes this massive and this expensive?

Many celebrities who registered with their names homes that shot adrenaline rush into their real estate agents wanted to have homes that could still sell out with tremendous potential when they'd feel that its time to move out. There are a variety of reasons why celebrities and those borne with silver spoon would think about moving out despite the almost-heavenly realm they present abodes exude. One is simply because the magic is lost. Just so happens that after all the fantasy the house has lost its luster and the corners can no longer provide the virgin assassination that it used to give, so its time to pack and find something else, much better and grander! Another reason is due to tumultous events that are synonymous with the home that leaving the dwelling place is the only way to trash all harrowing experiences into oblivion. One common reason is when lovers no longer agree on terms and conditions that selling the house proves to be the best option there is to maintain civility.

So, is trading homes a common thing in today's society? Look around and you'll find out that unlike the days of old when grandfather and grandmother would have ceremoniously bequeath the grandiose heirloom to their children in tears of joy, houses now are like gadgets; should there be no more intrinsic value to it, its time to let go! I hope it does not turn out the same with wives and husbands in the next century.
