Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, particularly when it comes to buying a home. Features that attract one home-buyer may repel another. One item of interest to all buyers is PRICE. Getting the most for your money is a top priority.

The first step in home shopping is figuring out what kind of home you need. Before shopping for a home, decide how much space your family needs. How many bedrooms, bathrooms? Is a family room a necessity? Do you need space for the kids or to entertain or both? What size of yard fits your needs?

Be honest in your fix-it abilities. How much work can you do or be willing to pay someone else to do? Make sure the major systems in the home are in good working order. A complete home inspection is always a good idea.

Don’t forget the old real estate adage: location, location, location.  Consider traffic, proximity to schools, work and shopping.

Consider the cost of living in the home. It’s important to consider not only the purchase price but the monthly cost of living in the home. Estimate your utility and maintenance costs. What increases in taxes can you expect?
