youWish looks like a usual real estate website, but in actual fact it is completely different. For a start the homes on youWish are not for sale. The owners are simply showcasing their properties and enjoying the benefits of being a member of the youWish international, online community. The ‘youWish price’ that is revealed when you become a youWish member, is the amount an owner wishes they could get for their property should they ever decide to place it on the market.
So naturally, because youWish is an entirely new concept, you are going to have some questions. We’ve done our best to predict what they might be and provide the answers. If however, after you have read the text below you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the team at youWish.
