We are continuing our series covering more things to think about when purchasing a new home as recommended by our Tampa listing agents/Orlando listing agents/South Florida listing agents and buyer’s agents. Our previous articles discussed:
- the importance of researching and narrowing down areas and locations to consider;
- knowing why the seller is moving on;
- thinking about the size of the home you actually need;
- condition of the home you are considering;
- insurance and taxes;
- whether to purchase an existing home or new construction;
- making a list of your must-have’s and your wants;
- storage needs
Today, we will look at more aspects to consider.
When it comes to education, you want to make sure you’re making the best decision for your children’s future. It’s important to research the school district and individual schools in the area you are considering. Research things such as academic excellence, class size, extracurricular activities, etc. If you are considering private schools, be sure to research all options and compare tuition costs before making an offer on a new home. The South Florida listing agents/ Orlando listing agents/Tampa listing agents and buyer’s agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents can provide you with the guidance you need to research educational opportunities in the area(s) you are considering.
In addition to thinking about your current needs, it’s also important to think about your future needs when purchasing a home. As we’ve discussed in a previous article, if you plan on starting or expanding your family, make sure there’s enough space in the homes(s) you are considering to meet your needs. You may also want to consider things like aging in place if you’re nearing retirement age. Can you picture yourself living in this home for many years to come? Are there features that could make it difficult for you to sell the property in the future? Taking the time to think about your long-term needs can help avoid making a purchase that won’t meet your objectives down the road. The South Florida listing agents/ Tampa listing agents/Orlando listing agents and buyer’s agents at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents can sit down with you to explore your current and anticipated future housing needs.
