 One of the first steps in the home buying process is to list all the features that you would like your new home to have.  Although you may not be able to find a house with all of these items if you find something with most of them you are on your way to buying your dream home.  Deciding what you need may be difficult but most buyers agree that the following features rank high when making the final decision.

Being able to afford your new home is at the top of the list.  Often buyers have to compromise between stretching their budget to have something on their “wish list” versus having more reasonable mortgage payments.

Next is the location. There is a lot of value in being able to get to where you are going so it is necessary to focus on proximity to schools, shopping, entertainment, and public transportation.

Curb appeal is important but it’s what you see once inside that matters.  The room that you care about the most, whether it be the kitchen, living room or master bedroom, will have the biggest impact on your decision.  The home also needs to have the right number of bedrooms and this can’t be overlooked.  

Your home is an investment.  Therefore keep in mind that you are not only buying for today but the future and resale value is important.  Purchasing your dream home can be one of the biggest decisions you make so contact a real estate professional in your area who can inform you about the current market and simplify the home buying process.
