The home buying process can be overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time buying a house. Here are some tips from our experienced Nest Realty team to help you make informed buying decisions.
Before you start the process of looking for a new home you should research the suburb/s you want to live in. As a prospective homebuyer, you should also consider the neighbourhood amenities that you would like to be close to. Do you need to be close to public transport? Is proximity to schools important? Are lifestyle facilities something you need, eg. gyms, walking paths, restaurants and medical centres? This helps you narrow down your property search before you even begin.
After choosing the suburb you want to live in, as a homebuyer you need to decide on the size of the home you would like. Not just the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but questions like; is it important to have two separate living areas or how much outdoor space do you really need to suit your lifestyle? This helps you create what we call a ‘shopping list’ of requirements for the home that you are looking for based on what you really need to continue, or improve, your quality of lifestyle.
The home you choose shouldn’t only be in an architectural style you like, but have a layout you are happy to live in. Is it more important to you what the outside looks like or that the layout suits you and your family? When you are looking at a potential home, consider what modifications can be made so as to make the home even more suitable for your lifestyle – and factor in the cost that would be involved before putting in an offer.
