RE/MAX offers a selection of quality homes in great neighborhoods that will suit just about every homebuyer. It doesn’t matter if the home you’re looking for is your first home or you’re simply moving from one home to another, there are some features and attributes to look for in a home that can make it a good fit for you and a good investment if you’re looking at selling somewhere down the line.
✓ Good Location
Even if the home you’re considering buying isn’t your dream home, its location may make up for any faults it has. Location really is the key when it comes to home buying because it’s the one thing you can’t change no matter how much money you invest in a home. Look for RE/MAX homes for sale in Flower Mound, TX that are on quieter streets and that are near schools. Take a look at the neighborhood to see how well other properties close by are maintained and check the local police department for crime statistics for the area you’re looking in.
✓ Good Layout
Any home you buy must have a good layout and a good flow from room to room. Unlike location, a home’s layout is something you can change; but it can cost a prohibitive amount of money that you probably won’t recover if you sell the home. It’s okay to buy a home that has a bit of a quirky plan but any major quirks will quickly become annoying and inconvenient after you move in.
✓ Good Landscaping
Your new home can have no landscaping and still be a better buy than one that has overgrown hedges and trees that have to be cleared or cut back once you move into the home. Many homeowners want mature trees in their landscaping and while these are usually a good thing they can sometimes be planted so close to the home that their roots are damaging the foundation or the plumbing.
✓ Good Structural Elements
It’s important that a new home be structurally sound. Be sure to look for termite damage, foundation cracks, cracks in interior and exterior walls, signs of mold, a sagging roof and uneven floors. While all of these things are fixable, you don’t want to have to put a lot of money into the home before you can even move in unless you buy the house at a low price and the improvements you make will increase the value of the home to bring it in line with comparable homes in the area.
