The term ‘luxury home’ brings to mind those TV programs, such as in the 80’s with “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, or MTV’s “Cribs”. Owning a luxury home is not just a matter of the home itself, it also comes with a luxury lifestyle.
Luxury homes are located all across the world, with the most expensive being along the coastlines of any given country. For example, homes in La Jolla, California which is a small community located right on the beaches of San Diego have luxury homes starting at $1,198,000.00 and can range up to a seven bedroom, 14 bath home listed at $28,000,000.00.
Obviously if you are in the market for a million dollar home you will not be mowing the grass yourself. Luxury lifestyles usually include gardeners, maids, dog walkers, chauffeurs, personal chefs, etc. Those who can afford such luxury are usually CEO’s, music moguls, those in the movie industry and the moneyed families of the world.
Usually those who can afford these types of homes will have one custom built, rather than buying one from someone else. After all, if you have the cash to invest in your dream home wouldn’t you want it to be untouched by the hands of others? The added advantage is that by building your own luxury home you can have everything that you desire included in the home. The disadvantage of owning a luxury home is if you ever want to sell it, those who can afford such luxury are few and far between.
Another option is to make the home that you already live in a luxury home. Start by appreciating what you have; talk with your partner, brainstorm with them and come up with ways to increase the appeal of the home you already have. Change the way you live without spending any money; this would include things like clearing out that clutter in your home and organizing your belongings. Keep your house clean and comfortable. Make it a loving and beautiful place to live. Find ways to appreciate the home that you a have long forgotten. You see, that is part of the American dream. If you can learn to appreciate what you have, make the most of it and dare to dream while your feet are still on the ground, than you can learn to live an extraordinary and luxurious life. Your home already has so much potential because a wonderful person like yourself already lives there.
