My next home MUST have...

Springtime is here, and I know from talking with many of you lately that your thoughts are turning to your next home. That’s awesome! Have you solidified your home’s criteria yet? Well, location and price are huge factors for most people. You want a neighborhood that’s close to work, family, entertainment, recreation, etc. As for price, none of us care to be “house-poor”. That can turn a home into more of a prison.

So, here are some other dream home criteria to consider:
1.) Type of property (single-family, town home, condo, duplex, etc.)
2.) Condition (is a fixer okay or does it need to be 100% updated?)
3.) Features / layout (you might want a 3-car garage to house your motorcycle collection or an open kitchen for entertaining)
4.) Amenities (game room, swimming pool, interior upgrades, outdoor entertaining space, etc.)

Just know that you can scale-back on some of the amenities if needed to keep you purchase within budget, but make sure you’re comfortable with the things that cannot easily be changed about the home. Location is the #1 thing that can’t be changed, so be sure to get that part right.

Have a great day, and happy home shopping to you all!
