How To Choose Your Perfect Home

Buying a home can be a tricky thing. You want to make sure that you get it right. Of course, the excitement of viewing various houses, or talking to a company like Bloomdale about the possibilities is intense. But how do you know you are doing the right thing?


With a few simple considerations, you can set you on the path to choosing the perfect
home for you.


Future
If you walk into a home, or you are looking at a location, and you can picture things
like your children or dog playing in the garden. Of that you can see yourself looking
out the kitchen window as you are prepping your lunch then that is a reliable indicator
that this might be the house for you. Being able to see the years ahead in a home or
location makes a big difference. 


“Home is not a place…it’s a feeling.”

Needs

What you need now and what you need in ten years time might not be the same. Before you arrange any viewings, make a list of everything that you 100% must-have in a property. This will be the guide for everything from here on out. Once you know what the needs are, you can decide if an almost perfect house is worth it or not.

Front Door

Sometimes you can tell if you want a home just from the front door. IF you can see yourself walking in and out of it countless times a day, then you might need to pay careful attention to the rest of the house. If you don’t want to enter home simply from the front door then that isn’t the place for you. Take a walk up and down the street to gauge the other homes too. Curb appeal can make a big difference in price and feeling.  

Possessive

If you find you’re defending the wonky step and the slightly peeled paint on the backdoor,
then you might already be in love. If you warm to a house very quickly and don’t see any
of the cosmetic issues as a problem, then book a second viewing to see if you feel the
same at a later date. 

Bingo

The housing market moves swiftly. So swift in fact you might find that some homes have
a bid before they have even been viewed. If you have found a home that matches 80-905
of everything you want, then you need to make a quick calculation on how much you can
afford to change and how much you are willing to compromise. 

“The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave, and it feels even better
to come back.”

Of course, much of choosing a home will be a combination of financial reasoning and a
gut feeling. But make sure that you get the right checks before you sign on the dotted
line (if you aren’t purchasing a new build). A second viewing and having a chat with
the neighbours is essential too.
