3. The Age of a Property

Age will always make a big difference when considering your dream house. Always be aware of what you’re signing for before making that offer.

Do you swoon over the irreplaceable charm offered by old homes?
Would you fall in love with a property that offered its built-in dumbwaiter and a hidden servant’s staircase?
If so, tailor your search to those historical diamonds in the rough. However, be aware that older homes tend to require a bit more TLC than their newer counterparts.

Alternatively, does your ideal property require no more work than turning the key in the front door?
Do you dream of a closet large enough to hold your more-than-substantial wardrobe and an updated master bath that feels like a spa? In that case, new construction may be a better fit.
If you can get in on the ground floor, you may even be able to select certain features while the home is being built and customize it further to your tastes.

4. The Right Amount of Space

Space is always Paramount in the search for your dream home. You should always Think about the space that you currently live in and answer the following key questions:

  • How does the size of your current house feel?
  • Do you have enough bedrooms?
  • Do Multiple family members have to share bedrooms?
  • Is there enough storage for all your household items?

In addition to considering your current living situation, you should also consider your plans for the future. If you think you may be making an addition to your family sometime soon, plan for a little extra room. Ideally, you’ll want a happy medium that will give you room to grow without going overboard.

5. Cost

If cost is not considered, your dream home could end up becoming more of a worry than an escape.

Try not to stretch yourselves to the furthest reaches of your budget.
Remember that there are more costs to consider than just the monthly mortgage payment.
You should also consider local taxes, monthly utility costs, and association fees when purchasing.
Once you submit an offer on a property, have your agent get in contact with the sellers. He or she can ask them to provide a breakdown of their average monthly and yearly payments.

Everyone deserves to find their dream home.

With the right amount of research, it is possible. Use these important factors as points of consideration as you and your family begin the home-buying process. They’ll help you focus on the qualities that a property must have to be your perfect fit.
