Home Trends

For many people, owning a home brings a sense of pride and freedom that cannot be matched by renting. When you own your own home, you aren’t bound by a landlord’s rules, and your monthly payments are actually building equity. You can paint your kitchen pink, change the landscape, install a basketball hoop, or turn your unfinished basement into a movie theater. Provided you work within any building or zoning regulations, you can do almost anything you want with your home. The shift in housing design is more of an emphasis of smaller homes with larger outdoor living areas. 
 
A trend simply reflects what seems to be going around at any given time, and it can be in any area and doesn't only reflect fashion, pop culture and entertainment. Trends may also depend on changing demographics, housing & economic indicators, a nation’s current political mood, and emerging trends in disasters. The following trends are focused on housing, it vital to become aware of the emerging trends that may positively, or negatively affect our home investment and our well being.
