Looking for a new home?


4 Things To Look For In A New Home...

 

Manageable Monthly Expenses:

If you’ve been renting all your adult life, you’ll be surprised by how much owning a home actually costs. Make sure your final choice truly fits your budget comfortably.



 

Low Maintenance:

Maintenance costs are the great unknown in homeownership, the older the house, the more it will cost to keep running. Here you have two options: be ready to learn handy household skills, or buy a newer home that is lower maintenance!


 

 

 

Room To Grow:

Use that purchase power to buy space, which is much more important than fancy finishes. You can always upgrade a drab kitchen and knock out a wall to create an open floor plan. But adding more square footage by popping the roof or pushing out an exterior wall is extremely expensive and a major hassle.

 

 

 Easy Transition:

Change is hard, and moving is particularly stressful. So don’t pick a starter home that will drop you into a totally unfamiliar lifestyle and location far away from the people and activities you love.
