Life is busy. Lots to do. Work. Family. Friends. Travel. You love living inner city but you crave a small veggie and herb patch, some greenery around you.
You want convenience, low maintenance. To be able to lock up and go when you have time away.
You want to have people over, family gatherings. Space to entertain or have family members to sleep over sometimes.
So many homes have bigger yards than you feel you want to worry about. And a fixer upper is not on your radar.
