Does anyone here look at real estate listings for fun? I do. I not only look at them in my area, but when I'm bored and I have the time I also look at them in different parts of the world.

Here is an example of a property on Lake Superior in upper Michigan that I think would be great to live on.

The house is nice but not my favorite part of the listing. The land. Oh, the land!

Ooh, I have a new favorite in Toledo, Spain.

Until it's replaced with another contender!

It's fun to dream!

I look at real estate listing sometimes. I only look at places I know I can afford.

I love doing that in my free time. I get inspiration from it.

I have been looking at property in different areas lately.

Mainly I look at those I might be able to afford but sometimes I do look at others which are outside my budget.

Although I am not ready to move this very moment, it helps me to get an idea of what I could buy and what is available allowing me to research the areas.

My aim is to downsize and be better off financially - the stress of a mortgage can be exhausting and take away from enjoying my home.

I guess I am lucky to be in this position as my brother recently pointed out. House prices have gone bonkers in the last 10-15 years making it impossible for some to consider having their own home.

I have fun imagining what I could do with a new home and the changes I could make to create my own identity within that space. Also I like to get inspiration.

occasionally :lol:

specifically, I am looking up cabins atm and alternatively ways to build one myself. It's so fun to think about the possibilities and what I could do with the space...

When I win the lottery, I'll be in a home similar to these. I just hope I win when I can move into a home like these. I'd prefer single floor plan, with maybe a lookout. Lots of land around it, so I don't hear the neighbours. Although some of the homes highlighted here you don't even see a neighbour!
