Deciding what you Want in a New Home

It is important to clearly define what is important to you and your family to have in a new home. Most people focus on how much they can afford to spend, but there are other things to also consider.

Before shopping for that new home, write down a list of things you would like to have in your new home and divide them by essential items and nice-to-have items.

Ask yourself questions such as:

  • What area of the city is desirable?
  • What style of home is preferred?
  • How many bedrooms are required?
  • What amenities are in the area?
  • Is a garage important?
