A Home Isn’t for Everyone

Working in the bathroom remodeling in Bergen County NJ business has helped me realized the value that a home can bring to a family. I’ve always lived in apartments which I’ve found to be perfectly reasonable for someone like myself; no family, no dependencies and no concern about equity. My income is no doubt enough for me to qualify for a mortgage but what is the point of owning my own home when I don’t have a family or a significant other to share it with? I’ll never see the American Dream as something which drives me to purchase a home.

Working inside homes has given me new insight. I used to be completely against the notion of a home regardless of one’s position in life. It came off as a pointless use of money when a condo or even a reasonably sized apartment would get the job done for most people. Now I see that a home becomes more like a bastion for the family. It’s a place that they can find shelter. A place that is their own, especially if they’ve managed to pay the mortgage off. There is a real sense of comfort that comes from the feeling of owning something completely enough that you know it cannot be taken away from you.

So maybe, perhaps one day, when I have a family of my own I might find myself with a home. Until then, I’ll be happy enough with an apartment. It might not be the most optimal use of my money but in the long run a home is a lot more work than one person needs to have to deal with in an already busy life. I’ll be more than happy to help people build the home of their dreams and find satisfaction in that.
