What are your home buying wants/needs?

June 6, 2017

When people are looking to buy a new home, they look for specific factors that contribute to the wants and needs in their lives.  It is important to pay attention to these, for buying a house is normally a long term investment.

One of the biggest things to pay attention to when house shopping is to stick to looking at houses in your price range.  This will prevent you from struggling in the future to making payments you cannot afford. Another big factor to look into when house hunting is the area the house is located and the size of the house.  If you find the house of your dreams but it is 45 minutes away from your job, you have to consider if you will be willing to make that drive back and forth everyday.  Also, if you find a house you like that might even be at the low end of your price range,  you have to take into consideration if that house is something you might out grow in a few years (children, etc).

People also look for specific wants around the house they are considering to purchase. If someone has kids, they most likely will want their house to be in a kid friendly neighborhood, with a park close by, or with minimal on going traffic.  Some people also look at the style of the house, is it old fashioned or modernly built? If someone truly has their mind set on any of these things, it could make or break the sale of a home.
