Questions Buyers Need to Ask

Before deciding which home to buy, think about your lifestyle, your current and anticipated housing needs and your budget.  When creating your wish list, take a look at your lifestyle.

Some Important Questions to Consider when Buying a Home

Write down on a piece of paper all the things you and your co-purchaser, if there is one, would love to have in your home.  You can let your imagination take over, but realize that you may have to cut the list back later.  As you think about your housing needs, it is important to consider how long you may live in your home.

If you are newly married, you might not be concerned with a school district right now.  But you could be in several years.  Will you move then? Or is the home you are looking for now in a neighborhood where good schools are available?

If you have aging parents, might they need to live with you in the near future?  If so, you may want to look at homes that offer living arrangements for them as well.  So, as you prepare your wish list, factor in both your current housing needs and what you may anticipate a few years from now.
