Lots of people dream of buying their own home — heck, having a place to pay a mortgage on is pretty much part of the American dream!

There are plenty of reality shows that make money off of the idea that millions of us sit around dreaming about having a house to flip, or getting the chance to design and build the house of our dreams.

It's such an overwhelming job to even think about that it can feel for some of us (particularly those of us with bad credit) like the closest we will ever get to attaining that dream. But it doesn't have to be that way.

1. If you saw the eye in the sky first...

If you looked at this image and saw the eye in the sky first, you're a person who loves the idea of building a house that makes a real statement.

You might not be showy in other areas of your life, but when it comes to your dream house you have truly opulent ambitions, and so you should; it's your dream house, after all!

You should build or buy your home in the center of a prominent European city.

You'll get culture, easy access to everything that you need, and plenty of opportunities to let people check out the beautiful home that you have worked so hard to make a reality. 

2. If you saw the mushrooms first...

If you looked at this image and saw the mushrooms first, you're a person whose dream house blends seamlessly in with its environment.

For you, building a house is all about incorporating the natural landscape. You want your home to seem like it's a part of the natural scenery, not some monolith that sticks out like a sore thumb.

You should absolutely build your home in a remote area.

Pick which you love more: the woods or the sand, and opt for building within a forest or building inside of a desert. For you, keeping your home safe and hidden from prying eyes is the ultimate goal. 

3. If you saw the river first...

If you saw the river first when you looked at this image, there's a very strong chance building a home isn't something you ever want to do.

If you had your way, you would rather invest in several apartments or flats throughout the world.

That way, you always have a place to flop as you dedicated your life to your truest passion: travel. 

For you, a home isn't the sanctuary that it is for other people; it's just a place to catch your breath before you head out for the next adventure. You want to make sure you've got plenty of homes to see you secure on your epic journeys. 

4. If you saw the ladder first...

If you saw the ladder first when you looked at this image, your dream home is one that happens to be close to the ocean.

While you wouldn't have a lot of art or other objects cluttering up your home, that's not because you don't appreciate beauty. In fact, you are willing to spend the money to get the ocean view that you have always dreamed of. 

In your dream house, every single window has a view to the water.

Plus, there is a deck where you can sit and look out over your coffee to watch the sun coming up over the water.
