Written by Posted On Tuesday, 29 September 2015 04:13

Home purchasing criteria is different for everyone. Decide what you want before searching or purchasing the house. Without proper list of criteria, you will waste a lot of time. List down all criteria for your search and then narrow down your search with the most important one on the top. With this, you'll maintain balance and will improve the success rate of your house hunt. Don't try to be over strict as you might be restricting yourself with the properties you would like to buy.

Here are some of the criteria you should consider. You may also add other criteria which are not listed here as individual preferences may differ.

Your dream property can become a reality only when you have enough finances to be able to purchase or build it. It is the maximum price of property you can afford to buy.  This amount might be pre-approved by your bank or you might feel you are more comfortable to limit your pre-approved amount. Be realistic while selecting your price limit as you will eliminate your heartbreak of finding the perfect home when you'll realize that you can't afford it.

Determine the town or city you want to live in. If you want to be in the city or near the hill, forest or on the highway, consider this criteria while selecting the community. Good numbers of towns, cities, builders like new home builders Round Rock are coming up in Texas with affordable floor plans as the population and traffic is very less.

House Size
How big is your family and how big do you want your house to be? The bigger the house; the more it will cost. Larger houses means you have to pay more taxes, renovation would be costly, more cost on insurance, heating appliances and air conditioners. If you have more rooms, make sure you can afford the furniture and make use of all rooms. However, don't go for a small house, if you really need the space. If you have a party or family gathering of fifty to hundred people, make sure you have enough space for the guests. If you already have house full of furniture, make sure the new house accommodates all your stuffs.

A simple way to know the square footage required by you is measure the current living space and then determine how much more space you require for your new home to be. Measure each room's length and breadth and multiply the two figures, you will get the square footage of that room. Measure each room in similar way and then add the square footage of each room to get the total square footage required for your new home. Do not include your basement or garage as real estate do not take this into account while considering the square footage.

A garage is a must for many home buyers either attached or detached. You can use your garage space for storing your motorcycle, bicycles or use the space for weightlifting. But remember that the garage space is included in taxes and this would increase your budget.

Neighborhood is important as you definitely would like to hang around on weekends to enjoy your leisure time. You have to decide whether you want to stay near a busy road, a quite countryside, near your children’s school or within walking distance of your job. New homes Round Rock have the latest amenities and offer exciting neighborhood to the residents.

This criteria is important if you have children. If you are single, try to think about what your situation might be after five years and plan it accordingly. Do some research for good schools in your community or private schools if any good options for public schools aren’t available.

Throughout your search try to adjust your criteria. After investigating few homes, you might decide you don’t need that extra bedroom or swimming pool. You may also find that some houses impose extra taxes. This way you will get the actual feel what exactly you want in your house and you may think of your budget to increase or decrease accordingly.
