Thereís a lot to consider when youíre buying a home and itís easy to become overwhelmed with all the possibilities. Itís also easy to fall in love with a house simply because itís furnished tastefully, smells nice or has a beautiful front lawn. Be sure to look past the cosmetics of the house and keep the most important things in mind when you go house shopping. Donít ignore a house just because you donít like the color of the paint or wallpaper, because those are cosmetic things that can be changed to your liking. There are a few key features that are the most important things to consider when buying a house, outside of finances. Space Before looking at houses, decide how many bedrooms and bathrooms you absolutely must have for the size of your family. Then, consider if you really need a living room and a family room. Some people buy a house with both, and never even use the living room, making it an unnecessary waste of space. Do you work from home and need an office? Do you have young children who need a big yard to play in? Do you like to entertain and want an adult play room in a basement? Do you want to grow into the house and take future children into consideration, or will a large home just be too much? These are all things to consider before deciding how much home you really need. Commute Your commute is important and may be more important than you realize. Many people have made the mistake of buying a home too far from work and underestimating the toll a long commute will have on their lives. A long commute cuts down on your family and social life, increases stress, and may even cause you to lose sleep. Often it is better to find a home close to work and perhaps give up something you think is important in a home. This is all about keeping your priorities straight. Is Your Furniture Going to Fit If you have large furniture, or a lot of furniture, consider if it will all fit in your new home. Will that large over-sized dresser be able to be carried up three flights of stairs into your bedroom? Will your expensive, overstuffed sofa fit in the front door of an older home? Will the bedroom be big enough for your king-sized bed or will it take up the whole room? If you have a dining room now, does the new house have one also, or is that something you can forgo?
