Purchasing that “dream home” is one of those accomplishments that tops nearly everyone’s bucket list. Whether you prefer a modernized urban home or a sprawling suburban home, Mantra Properties understands that most of us just hope to find a home that feels like it was made specifically for our family.
However, finding your dream home comes with different considerations than any other real estate purchase. Since you’ll likely be aiming to stay in the property for the foreseeable future, you’ll want to look for a property that will keep you and your family happy and safe for the long term. Don’t be afraid to be picky and hold out until you find a home that feels right and fits all your expectations.
So, how can you know that “this is the one” for you? In this blog, Mantra Properties gives you a 4-pointer checklist that you need to consider while buying a home.
Firstly, identify the core values and lifestyle that’s the most important to you and each of your family members. You might want a lifestyle that is based on various factors depending on your workplace, children’s school, medical facilities etc. Imagine the ideal lifestyle for your family as well as yourself, both today and a decade into the future, and use this as basis for choosing the features you’d like in your home to have. Think about your ideal day-to-day life with regard to commuting and running errands, and also think about how you want to spend your evenings, weekends and holidays.
Remember, that your property will not exist in a bubble. It’s part of a larger community – your neighborhood that you will live in on a daily basis. With that in mind, it’s critical that you find a neighborhood that suits all your needs before buying. Is your great escape the one that gives you all the peace of a secluded forest or tons of energy from a bustling city center? Whatever your heart desires, don’t hesitate to explore the neighborhood and look into the future of you living here.
When it comes to buying a home, especially the home you’ve been thinking about for your entire life, the age of the property does make a difference. Buying older homes and brand new ones, each have their pros and cons, so you have to be aware of what you’re signing up for before you submit an offer. Tailor your search according to your needs. If you want to experience modern amenities, latest construction tech etc. always consider buying a brand new one.
The trick when it comes to finding your dream home is figuring out how much space you truly need to live. Buying a home that is too small for your family will leave you constantly trying to configure the space to make it work for you. In the same way, buying a property that is too large will allow you to spread out, but will wrack up unnecessary large costs. Think about the space that you are currently living in. How does it feel? Does it have enough bedrooms or do multiple family members have to share? Is there enough storage for all your belongings? In addition to considering your current living situation, you should consider your plans for the future. If you think you may be making an addition to your family sometime soon, plan for a little extra room. Ideally, you’ll want a happy medium that will give you room to grow and enjoy without going much overboard.
