As 2016 approaches you may be on the horizon for purchasing a new home. One of the may questions a Realtor will ask you is what type of home you are looking for.
With so many options out there is can be hard to narrow down what it right for you. Between single family, town homes, condos, twin homes, and all the subcategories in there it is smart to talk to your realtor about what those options look like. If you are a single person a large single family home may not be the right fit. And if you have a large family you may want to consider a large home with a yard. So what should you know when you are style shopping for a home?
How many people are planning to live in the home? This can dictate many things if there are more than two or three you may want to exclude condos and small town homes.
How old are the people who are planning to live there?
Do they want to do a lot of yard and home maintenance or as little as possible?
Do you have or intend to have pets? Some associations in condos and town homes prohibit certain kinds of animals and sizes.
How large of home do you need or want? With the added expenses in heating and cooling you may want to thin about your budget and make sure the size of the home is right for your finances.
There are so may other factors that can influence you choice of style when looking at purchasing a property. I highly recommend chatting with a local real estate agent to get more information about what is available and what styles are out there that would be a good fit for you!

A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, and the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
