Things to Consider in Buying Your Dream House

Are you looking for a new house to move in? Deciding on what house to buy is not that easy, one has to consider many factors before making a final assessment and eventually decision.  Consider the following questions to guide you with your decision:

1.     Should I buy, build or rent?

To answer this, you must as well ask yourself the inevitable question of “what do your budget allows you”. Are you capable of buying your own house as of this time? If yes, are you willing to start from scratch and build one or you’d rather buy an established house? If the answer is no (or at least not yet), your budget does not allow you to buy a house yet then the option is to rent.

2.     Where do I want to live?

Now, where do you want to live? One of the most important factors to consider when buying a house is the location. Choose a house in a location that you see a future for yourself and for your family. Do you prefer to live in the city or do you prefer a quieter and relaxing environment by the beach or in the mountains? You must take into consideration many things before you answer this.

3.     What size or style of the home I want?

Then, start thinking about the style of your dream home. Do you want to live in a high-rise building or do you prefer one built from the ground? What type of house will make you happy? Do you like modern, contemporary, classic or perhaps you have a more unique type in mind that you wish for your dream house? Nevertheless, plan it ahead of time.

I am blessed enough that hubby and I finally decided to settle three years ago and now living in the dream home that we’ve prayed for. Indeed, we considered those factors mentioned above and we’ve regretted nothing on the decision we made.

Just recently, I was chatting with my cousin who is currently living in Australia. She told me that they wanted to buy another property close to nature for them to relax during weekends and holidays away from the urban area.

I believe that the house for sale in Mayfield area would be perfect for their needs. It is close to nature and nearby town as well. They would enjoy the perks of both worlds.  The area would be perfect for family camping, hunting or simple gatherings. Another attraction that they will surely enjoy is the view in the Dandenong Ranges. Indeed, an easy escape away from the stress of a busy city. It is ideal for any working parents who wish to forget about their problems from the office or their business.

You should remember to consider the different factors that we’ve discussed in this post to help you come up with a house that you can call your “dream house”. It worked well for our family and I am hoping it will be helpful for you and your family too.

Happy house hunting!
