Your premier home builders and developers at Reagan Homes encourage home buyers to look for a home that you could see yourself living in for at least 5 to 7 years. Buying and selling a home costs money, and moving takes a lot of time and effort. Staying in one place longer helps you avoid those added expenses. You need a home that can adapt to your needs as your life changes. Changes in family size such as having a child or a child going off to college can affect your space needs. If you can’t afford a place that’s large enough to meet your anticipated future needs now, search for one that will allow you to build an addition in the future.
Consider a place with multi-functional rooms, so the home remains highly functional for you over time as your needs change. An open-floor-plan-style home is very adaptable. A kitchen that overlooks a family room is helpful for keeping an eye on children when they are young, and the same kitchen is also great for entertaining friends once the kids have grown up and moved on. Think about what style of home fits you best. For example, a single-family home may be great for a person seeking privacy, but not a good fit for someone who doesn’t want mow the lawn or do their own repairs. When you purchase a home, you not only buy a structure, you also buy into a neighborhood. Think about whether that neighborhood will suit you. Is there a noisy neighbor or a school across the street that will become an annoyance? Also, do you like the feel of the neighborhood and does it offer everything you need? It’s best to find a place in a community that you’ll enjoy.
Location, location, location…where your home is situated does matter. A house that’s located on a busy, noisy street may be less desirable than one situated on cul-de-sac. A home on a cul-de-sac is likely to be worth more than a poorly located one when it comes time to resell. Consider a home’s location before you’re persuaded by a spectacular interior. You should contemplate how easy or difficult it might be to resell the home. If a home not in keeping with the landscape of the neighborhood in terms of size, style and amenities, you might want to overlook it.
It’s easy to shoot for the sky and overspend when buying a home — you understandably want the best your money can buy. Examine your finances, keeping in mind current and future expenses, and don’t exceed your means. It’s smarter to buy a home you can easily afford than one you have to stretch to get into. Stay down to earth, and you’ll be better prepared should unexpected financial commitments and problems arise later down the road.
