5 Things to Consider before Buying a House

Buying a house can be exciting, exhausting and/or scary, and demands time to weigh all the pros and cons it entails. Buying a house can be exciting, exhausting and/or scary, and demands time to weigh all the pros and cons it entails.

There’s this house with a beautiful veranda you’ve always dreamt about, but it’s facing a high-traffic street; or this perfect home with a massive yard, located in a neighborhood with a high crime rate.

Too often in home buying, it’s difficult to choose one thing without compromising the other. However, there are just some factors crucial enough that you can’t really ignore.

Here are 5 things you need on your home buying checklist: 

1.Location
The three most important factors that need to be considered when buying a house is location, location, location. That extra 30 minutes of commute means 30 minutes less on your sleep. Don’t trick yourself into thinking that this won’t make even the slightest change in your lifestyle. Find a house that is conveniently situated near places that you might need – hospitals, schools, convenience stores and the like.

2.Neighborhood
When you buy a home, you have to think ahead into the future because it will be a commitment for many years. It’s important to like what you see when you walk out the door. Not just the house, but make sure that the neighborhood meets your expectations as well.

3.Size
Will the bedroom fit all the furniture you already have? Will it have enough room for new ones? Does the kitchen have enough space for your tools and appliances? Bigger isn’t always better, but if it’s also too small, frustrations can occur over time. Don’t pay extra for a larger kitchen when you don’t even cook, but don’t compromise storage as well.

4.Plumbing
More often than not, pesky plumbing problems are often overlooked by people looking to buy a house. Leaky toilets, clogged drains, and poorly installed water pipes – things you don’t notice at a first look. Don’t get soaked, look out for these red flags before signing on the deal.

5.Deal Breakers
If you don’t love every bit of it, and you don’t think you can make the necessary adjustments, don’t buy it. Don’t force yourself into something you’ll regret as soon as you’ve signed the papers. Only settle when you want to, put your foot down when you have to.

In the end, you just want to end up with a home you’ll love entirely. Let a reliable and experienced realtor help shave your work off. If you’re looking for Cagayan de Oro properties to meet both your wants and needs, A Brown Company will surely have something for you.
