6 Things To Consider Throughout Your Homebuying Journey!

Happy family with two kids having fun together

In the market to purchase a new home? Whether you’re new to homebuying or are a seasoned pro, it’s helpful to ask yourself important questions to refine your search and find your dream home when you’re ready. Here are six things to consider throughout the homebuying process:

House icon orange with #1Location
Have a general sense of where you want to live? Do you want to stay in the same area, move to the next town over, or have a completely different change of scenery?

House icon orange with #2House Type
Are you looking for a one-story ranch style, a two-story single-family house, a condo, or something else?

House icon orange with #3Big or Small
How much living space do you need in a house? A good rule of thumb is that each person needs roughly 200-400 square feet to live comfortably in a home. Tidbit: the average square footage of single-family homes in the U.S. is 2,531.

Do you have children? If you answered yes, then the quality of public education is extremely important.

House icon orange with #5Yard Space
Do you want something easy to manage or a sizable yard, providing more room for pets to run wild and free?

House icon orange with #6Costs
What’s your budget? Consider costs other than just your mortgage payment, such as property taxes and homeowners association dues.
