5 Things You Should Love About 

Your Home Before You Commit

Before you make an offer, be sure you love these five traits about your potential new place.

You gaze longingly at the curb appeal and your heart flutters at the open kitchen, but is the home you're considering buying really The One? Before you make an offer, be sure you love these five, hard-to-change traits about your potential new place.

1. Square footage

Too small and you may quickly outgrow your new space. Too big can mean unnecessary energy bills and money spent furnishing space you never use. Aim for "just right."

2. Drive time

Be sure your daily commute won't leave you sitting in traffic, rethinking your relationship with your house. Consider driving to work from your potential home a couple times during rush hour to know what you're getting into.

3. Walkability

Being able to stroll to shops, restaurants, parks and public transportation can really boost your quality of life. If it's important to you, check out your potential home's official walkability score at www.walkscore.com.

4. Community

Does the neighborhood include features that are critical to your particular lifestyle, like yoga studios, late night takeout options or a safe playground for your kids (or pups)?

5. Planes, trains and automobiles

If you travel frequently, consider how close your potential new home is to the airport, main highways or public transportation. Not a fan of planes flying overhead – or the noise of late-night trains passing by? Keep that in mind when scoping out areas as well.

A lot goes into making that perfect connection with a new home. Give me a call, and we can talk about finding your perfect match.
