The Discerning Buyer
While a Custom built home is always an option, the pre-owned home can be the best choice. In addition to the ability to walk the home and touch, feel and see, it may provide the visual benefit of furniture placement and capability to visualize your family’s lifestyle in your new home.
While the decor of a pre-owned home may appear differently from your desires, pay more attention to the structure of the house. Look at the trim, windows and floor plan. Floor joists and sound proof insulation for interior rooms can make all the difference in the longterm. The value of a sound home lasts longer than a wall color or carpet choice. Most cosmetic changes are minimal in expense and provide for an easy switch. The investment in a well built home is timeless.
Location is always the key with regard to Real Estate. Your consideration as to the amenities, security, local schools and conveniences help determine which location best suits your lifestyle. Take into account the importance of available shopping and attractions as well as your commute. Observe the community landscape and pay close attention to how all common areas are maintained.
Look At The Details
Think about your daily routine and consider if the entertaining areas and family space are suitable for your needs. Floor plan has a big impact on your life with regard to room placement, size and which rooms you will use most. Will the 3 car garage be adequate for a growing family? Perhaps an elevator is an important concern as older or mobility challenged family members reside in the home.
Inspect the details. Lighting is important and while a dining room fixture is an easy change, observe the placement of the can lights and available switches and dimmers. Is there a whole house or complete room on and off switch? Consider the availability of both natural and artificial light that may affect your daily life. Observe the appliances, pantry and kitchen functions. These are basic considerations before making an offer on your new home.
