You’re at that pivotal point in your life when you realize it’s time to move. Maybe you’ve outgrown the space or maybe you’re just looking for a new place to call home. Buying a home comes with many decisions and considerations. It often takes a lot of planning and can feel like an overwhelming process. Here are the top 5 things we suggest considering before you commit to any home.
Decide on Deal Breakers
Understanding your future needs is imperative to choosing a home. You have to consider current situations as well as future situations in which you might find yourself in the next couple of years. Do you plan on having kids? Are you considering adopting a pet? These questions are important when deciding what your deal breakers will be. If you answered yes to both of these questions, you might consider being more specific on the number of bedrooms and yard size you want. At Scissortail, we believe you shouldn’t have to settle when choosing your home.
Check the Basics
Basics of home buying include making sure the home is fully functional. This includes checking on HVAC units, electrical systems, drainage, insulation, roofing, foundation issues and plumbing. While this might seem like a long checklist it can be as simple as flushing a toilet or walking around the house.
Visualize the Space
An important aspect of home buying is learning to visualize the space. You may walk into a home and decide that the paint color isn’t for you, but don’t let this deter you from seeing what the home could be. You need to ask yourself more important things like if you like the layout and the floor plan. Sometimes it can be hard to see a house as your home when it’s empty or filled with other people’s belongings. Learning to visualize a space allows you to see beyond quick changes and to focus on how a home could be the right fit for you.
Assess the Neighborhood’s Community
A neighborhood community can make or break a home buying decision. You want to live in a place where you feel safe and like you belong. At Scissortail, we strive to create community through our clubhouse and other great amenities. Make sure that whatever home you are looking at fits your style and more importantly your personality.
