7 Top Tips for Determining the Features of Your Perfect Home
Searching for the home of your dreams can be both an exciting and exhilarating experience. But, all emotions aside, before you head out shopping, you need to figure out where you want to live and what your housing needs will be both now and into the future. A RE/MAX Realtor is a useful resource in determining what type of home will best meet your needs – and they know exactly the right questions to ask, because they help clients buy and sell properties every day. Consider the following questions to determine what your unique home-buying needs entail:

1. What kind of neighbourhood do I want to live in? Remember to take into account such features as how easy it will be to commute to work, whether your children will have a school close by, and how close you will be to family, friends and safe recreational areas and facilities.

2. Do I want to live in a new or resale home? New homes offer advantages such as more personalized choices, up-to-date appliances and finishings and, often, lower maintenance costs. But resale homes can provide easier access to more established services and mature landscaping, and may save you from having to pay GST/HST on your purchase.

3. In which type of home would I feel most comfortable living? The choices available on the market today range from single-family detached houses, semi-detached and duplexes to townhouses, modular homes and condominiums.

4. How large of a home do I need?

5. Do I need several bedrooms, more than one bathroom, a home office or a two-car garage?

6. Am I planning on making any lifestyle changes in the near future? For instance, are you planning on having children? Do you have teenagers who will be moving away soon? Or are you close to retirement and looking to downsize to a smaller home?

7. Are there any special features I’d like my home to have? This could include everything from air conditioning to a swimming pool or a spare room for a hobby.

By clearly establishing your priorities in advance, you can help save yourself a great deal of time and trouble before you even set out to find the perfect home.
