5 Things You Should Love About Your Home Before You Commit

Feb 15, 2018

You gaze longingly at the curb appeal and your heart flutters at the open kitchen, but is the home you're considering buying really The One? Before you make an offer, be sure you love these five, hard-to-change traits about your potential new place.

1. Square footage

Too small and you may quickly outgrow your new space. Too big can mean unnecessary energy bills and money spent furnishing space you never use. Aim for "just right."

2. Drive time

Be sure your daily commute won't leave you sitting in traffic, rethinking your relationship with your house. Consider driving to work from your potential home a couple times during rush hour to know what you're getting into.

3. Walkability

Being able to stroll to shops, restaurants, parks and public transportation can really boost your quality of life.

4. Community

Does the neighborhood include features that are critical to your particular lifestyle such as a safe playground for your kids?

5. Planes, trains and automobiles

If you travel frequently, consider how close your potential new home is to the airport, motorways or public transport.

A lot goes into making that perfect connection with a new home. Give me a call on 087 2500716 and we can talk about finding your perfect match.
