If These Walls Could Talk5/31/2017
As I was reading the Edmond Outlook magazine, I came across an article entitled, “When These Walls Talk”. The article was actually about using picture frames to tell your home’s story. Being a Realtor, it got me to thinking about when I show homes for a buyer or list a home for a seller and the story these homes tell. The questions, in the article, were does your home tell a story of you? Your family? Where you’ve been? These intrigued me. Every home I have seen tells a story of the individuals or families that live in them. Some of these homes are filled with toys, loving pictures on the walls of families enjoying one another while others paint a completely different picture. I have seen homes that war veterans have lived in, metals on their walls showing what they have survived and wars they have fought. The decorating of a home also tells a huge story of the person and/or people that live in it. You can walk into some homes that project a warmth, love, serenity while some I have felt deep sadness, a darker story, sometimes even uneasiness. Those homes my heart yearns to know their story and when leaving, I send up a little prayer for serenity. What story does your home tell? Look around and the next time you choose to sell or buy a home, let’s tell your home’s story together.
