Are you currently looking for a new home? Choosing a new home can be both exciting and frightening at the same time. Things you may consider is if the home is really suitable for you? Is the new home near to your work place? Is it accessible via public transportations? Is the new home “problem free”? Well, you will need to consider these factors when choosing a new home.

Look at the whole picture

Don’t be carried away just because both of the house you’re interested in cost the same with one having 100sqm where by the other is only 50sqm. Look at the material the house is using for the smaller one. It is probably in better shape than the one that is bigger but listing at the same price. Don’t fall for the cheaper and bigger house easily. Ask yourself, will you list a house as big as that one for that same pricing if there are no problems?

Nothing is perfect

Nothing is perfect in buying a house unless they’re hiding something from you. You find the price too good to be true when they’re listing a newly renovated home? Chances are that somewhere along the lines, something went wrong while renovating. It is nearly impossible to find a perfect house. Try to visualize the house after you renovate it yourself, if it fits your plans. If it does, just get it no matter how lousy it looks now.

Choose a floor plan not a house

Chances are when you’re looking to buy a house, you will be looking at how beautiful the house is right now. Don’t look at the house, look at the floor plan. Yes, if you really love the way they designed the floor, keep it but change everything else. Ensure that the floorplan is how you would like your new home to be. Look at where the sewage points are, it is hard to change the sewage points and it is not recommended to change these points. So, is the toilet where you want it to be? If so, you can consider the house.

The neighbourhood

The neighbourhood is very important to choosing your new home. No matter how great the house is, if the neighbourhood is bad you will not like to live in that place. Choose the neighbourhood as well and not just the house. After all, people tend to love the place they live in due to the neighbourhood and not just because of the house.

Look for a property developer

If you are still unsure where to look for the new home, try looking for real estate and property development companies. They may have suitable houses and property for you to choose from. Tell them what you need and want for your new home and they will find places that suits your requirements. They might even find properties that are newly built at an affordable price matching both your budget and requirements.
