Finding a home to fit your needs

by Julie Butherus CRS, GRI

Buyers can sometimes get distracted in their home search by the fancy amenities certain homes offer. The heated driveway, backyard pool, gorgeous bay windows and other "extras" are always nice, but I like to make sure clients don't overlook the necessities they need in a home. 

These necessities usually include having the right floor plan for your lifestyle, finding a suitable location near work or school, and staying within a reasonable budget.  If a buyer is already crunched for time, purchasing a home that adds a long commute to and from work is probably not a good idea. Nor is it wise to purchase a home that will stretch your budget so thin that you are unable to do the activities you truly enjoy. 

Try to picture yourself living in the home on an ordinary day. How will the layout affect your morning routine? What time will you have to leave to drop the kids at school and still make it to work on time? Will you have enough extra money after the mortgage payment to afford the necessary maintenance and upkeep on the home?
