What Kind of New Home Do You REALLY Want?

So, here we are. You have decided on home ownership and have been pre-approved for a loan. Now you need to spend some time thinking about what features you want in your new home.

Below are some ideas you should consider before you start looking. By narrowing the range of suitable houses, you will waste less time looking at houses that don't meet your basic requirements.

After you have spent a few minutes considering each of the topics below, go to the Buyers Wish List Form and print a copy. Use this to list what you want in your new home, then give a copy to your real estate professional. This will save a lot of time and frustration when you begin the looking process.

  • New vs. older home - Do you want a fixer upper? Or would you prefer a brand new home in perfect condition? Most buyers fall somewhere in between.
  • Location, location, location - Do you need to be near a job, school, hospitals, day-care facilities, shopping, recreation, etc.?
  • Size requirements - Size is an important consideration when choosing a home. Will your family soon out grow it? Will you be paying for more house than you need? What about space for a garden, nice sized yard for the kids to play in, or additional parking?
  • Special features - Do you need a garage, second bathroom, porch or deck, air-conditioning or wheelchair accessibility?
  • Special types of homes - Are you looking for a single-family detached house? Will this house have one or two stories? How about a townhome or condo? See our Townhome or Condo? Can You Tell the Difference? article for more information.

You may want to print two copies of the Buyers Wish List Form - one to give to your agent, and one to keep and make notes on as you look.
