Buying a Home that Fits Your Lifestyle
Finding the right home and one that truly fits your lifestyle is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. It should fit with your lifestyle and have the right floor plan and style that you’ll love for years to come.
Size is important when considering a home. If you’ve got a large family, they probably won’t be comfortable in a small two-bedroom bi-level. A sprawling walk-out condo may not be the best choice either unless it meets other needs – such as enough bathrooms.
Do you like to entertain? Then, consider a floor plan that flows easily – not one chopped up so you can’t visit with your guests while in the kitchen. A backyard or patio may also be important so the overflow of people have room to move around.
Consider the layout of your new home more than the décor or fancy finishes. It should flow easily from room to room and be functional for what you love to do. Don’t choose based on great carpet in the living room but look for how welcoming it will seem to guests coming from a kitchen or foyer area.
When considering your home purchase take into account whether you’re going to be using your current furniture or purchasing new furniture that will better fit your floor plan. If you want to use your current furniture, measure the area to make sure it will fit.
While most of us tend to go over-the-top when it comes to purchasing a home, the price of those fancy features or location usually bring us back to earth. You know what you like, what you can live with and what are absolute deal breakers. Your instincts will usually guide you in the right direction. If a floor plan, style and location just “feels right,” it probably is. But, use your common sense or consult an expert if you’re not sure about making a final decision.
