A friend of mine recently purchased a new home.  This led to a stressful time, longing to make the right decision and find a house that would become a home.home for sale

  1. Assess your needs in advance
  2. Be realistic about what you can afford
  3. Is this a starter home or a family home you hope to stay in the rest of your life
  4. Do you need room for growth?  Are you planning on expanding your family?
  5. Search for the amenities you need or can’t live without
  6. Decide what you can live without if necessary
  7. Search for a home that meets the needs for you and your family
  8. Consider the neighborhood, surrounding schools, etc.  Is the home on or near a busy shopping center or road?  Is this something you can live with or will this cause too many delays?
  9. Is this home?  Do you love the house?  Does it feel like home?

What aspects did you take into consideration when searching for a new home?
