The Many Choices of Purchasing a Home

November 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

row of housesBelieve me, when it comes to finding the perfect home I know there are many choices to select from. To help you narrow down your search, consider a few of these items and how they fit into your lifestyle:

Home Type: Are you looking for a single family, a multi-family, a condo, or an investment property? Are you looking for new construction or previously owned? If you are looking for a previously owned, how old? Think about the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Location: What is your commute? Are you looking for views? Large or small lot? Close to major streets or off the beaten path?

Size and Floor Plan: How big? How will you use the space? For example, do you want four bedrooms because you have three children? Or will you use the extra bedrooms for a guest room and separate office? How you use your home will determine the size and floor plan needed.

Fixer-Upper: Do you want a fixer-upper? Are you looking for an investment property? It’s a great way to accumulate equity. Consider financing.

Special Features: Make sure the home has any special features you may require, such as RV parking, central air, a main-floor bedroom, or disability features.

Family Space: Family activities often occur in the kitchen, so this may be the most important room in the house. Larger kitchens are usually better. If the home is a resale, has the kitchen been updated? Do you like the layout? Are new appliances important?

…and the list could go on. But even though there are many things to consider when you shop for your new home, I’d be happy to share my expertise to make buying your home a fun and exciting experience.
