There was once a time when living in a shared house was the normal way to go when you moved out of your home (or separated from a partner) and it certainly is an experience to cross off the bucket list. But anyone who has experienced it will likely have their own stories a la ‘he died with a felafel in his hand’, and there comes a time when you just want to fly solo and make your own stories. Those who have taken that leap into independence can attest to the newfound freedom and enjoyment that can be found in living alone, and having their place all to themselves. At Bunbury Real Estate we’ve heard all the interesting stories of shared housing gone wrong, and we love the opportunity to introduce people to the joys of living alone.
Time Out for Yourself
Let’s face it, people are great. However, sometimes you just want to get away from everything and everyone, and relax into your own space. Having your own place where you can retreat back to, is akin to having your own private cave where you can spend time doing exactly what you want to do, and nobody will say anything about it.
No Negotiating Required
Sharing with other people can be challenging even for the best communicators around, and despite all the best intentions, sometimes personalities can clash. We spend the majority of our daily lives at work, study and play, negotiating with the people around us to achieve a win/win for everyone, as best we can. When you live alone, you know that you can head back to your little island in the world, where you can let it all hang out, and be who you are, without worrying about stepping on anyone’s toes.
You Choose Who Visits
The upside of living with other people is that you get to have impromptu social engagements, but the downside is that you might have to put up with people whom you just don’t want to be around. When living alone you get to choose who comes to visit and when, so you can create your own social engagements according to your own needs at the time.
I Did it My Way
If you are one of those people who like to have things in the house set up exactly how you want them, living alone has a distinct advantage, because everything is done your way. Even down to how the washing up is done! If you decide that you want to move the whole lounge room around every week, nobody is going to say a word. If you decide to stay up all night listening to music, or feel like watching movies in your undies it’s fine by us, if it’s fine by you.
You’ll Feel Empowered
Making choices 100% for one’s self is one of those rites of passage that come to people who are focused on their own path in life. Living alone is one of those choices, and helping you to step onto that path would be our pleasure at Bunbury Real Estate, so contact us to see what we have available, and start enjoying the benefits of living alone.
