FIVE FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT HOME
THE CONDITION OF THE PROPERTY
Pay attention to potential problem areas such as cracked foundations, roof conditions, age of appliances, slouching or uneven walls, etc.
Drive through the town and check parks, gyms and community events around the town. Also, look for financial clues such as foreclosures, unkempt parks, littered streets, etc.
If you have children, access to quality education is important. Make sure the local schools meet your standards.
Consider your commute. Will you need access to major highways? If you do not have a car, be sure to check the coverage of public transportation in the local area.
Make sure businesses you'll be frequenting such as a bank, grocery store, or pharmacy are within a feasible distance from your prospective home.
