What are you looking for in a home?

Once you have a good idea of what you can afford, it’s time to start looking at the market. This is when the real fun begins! There are a number of things you need to consider first, though. Before we get into features that you want in your home, you need to think about location. Consider these categories:

Urban communities are situated inside larger cities. While urban areas offer a variety of housing choices and are close to amenities, they are often much more pricey. People will pay good money to be close to their place of work.

Suburban communities are usually in newer areas and include amenities such as, shopping centres and schools. Although prices are similar to that of urban housing, you often get more for your money – additional rooms and more square footage are among the bonuses of suburban homes.

Rural living is certainly not for everyone, but a dream to some. While rural living puts you further from amenities and comes with its own additional costs, your housing budget will often get you more than what the other locations have to offer.

Smaller towns and cities appeal to some because of the more relaxed lifestyle they offer. Often, taxes are lower in small towns, as well. There are, however, fewer types of homes to choose from in smaller towns.
