10 Amenities to Look for when Buying a Home:
Now that Spring is here, buying
and selling homes is an objective for many of you, who have
waited patiently all winter to start your home search. Whether
it is your first home or you are a veteran, there are amenities
that you should keep an eye out for when looking to buy a home.
While many people can stage and make a house look good, remember
once their belongings are taken with them, the house will
remain. Therefore, look at these 10 amenities when considering
buying a home, to help assure you of getting a worthwhile
Look at the kitchen appliances: One of the most expensive
parts of homes are the appliances. The age, care, and condition
of the kitchen appliances in the home will have a direct impact
as to whether you will need to buy new ones, or if they will
need to be serviced anytime soon. Go ahead . open the
Finishes and Materials: Once you know your price range,
know what finishes are expected in your price point. Less
expensive home will use vinyl flooring, lower end carpet and
possible plastic laminate counters in kitchen and baths. While
higher end homes may use more resilient flooring such as tile
and wood, and solid surfacing in kitchens, such as granite or
slate. Knowing what is expected in your price category will help
you determine if the home you're looking at is a deal or not.
Pay attention to the ceiling: The
ceiling is a telltale place for water spots to show from
possible leaks and cracks from structural damage. Pay attention
to cracks in drywall, wall surfaces, and where the ceiling meets
the wall for warning signs.
Outdoor areas of the home: Don't
forget to look at the roof, gutters, downspouts, and inspect the
outdoor condition of the home. Especially older homes, try to
find out from your Realtor or the previous homeowner when
maintenance or replacements have been conducted in the past.
Look at the neighborhood: Yes, your
house is important, but the safety, location, and proximity to
several amenities should be considered as well. Research nearby
schools if you have children, as well as travel time to work,
stores, and how your neighborhood is laid out. Feel just as
comfortable with your neighborhood as your house.
Upgrades versus standard amenities: If
you are purchasing a brand new home from a builder, know what
are upgrades versus standard amenities when looking at homes.
Most model homes will have quite a few upgrades to show homes in
their "highest quality" state. While upgrades don't mean the
home is built any better or worse than homes with less upgrades.
Once again, this information will help you be an informed
homebuyer. Don't allow yourself to buy a more expensive home
that you budgeted for because of upgrades. Knowing your price
point will keep you disciplined.
Bathroom amenities: Similarly to the
kitchen, look at the bathroom plumbing fixtures, shower/tub to
see what condition these amenities are in. For older homes, if
you know you will need to do a remodel or renovation in the
future, you should be prepared to know this reality when looking
at the home, not after you move in.
Major systems: Take a look at the
heating/air conditioner unit, hot water heater, and other major
systems in the house when looking at homes. These systems can be
costly if they are left in disrepair for too long. While you may
not need to look at these until you are settling on one specific
house, its good to keep on your checklist.
Homeowner added amenities: For resale
homes, many homeowners have already upgraded the home on their
own. From adding a swimming pool and deck in the backyard to
crown molding and built in cabinets in the living room. Most
homeowners will state what upgrades they have put into the
house, and what the approximate cost it was to upgrade. Use this
information when comparing like properties in a similar
neighborhood, city, etc.
Look for a paper trail: Especially
when buying a resale home, seek a paper trail, or a list of
receipts and/or documents of repairs, upgrades, and services
added to the home over the years. Similarly to buying a used
car, the more informed you are, the more ideal buying a home
from that individual will feel. Amenities in a home can be
attractive, but if the homeowner can't tell you who upgraded it
and when, you may want to move on to the next house.
Looking for a new home can be
exciting, and at times nerve racking! Even though it can be both
of these, looking for a home is an essential part of life, and
believe it or not, it is the best investment you can ever make.
Decide what amenities you have to have, and which ones you'd
prefer, but don't have to have. Use this 10 amenities list to
help you know what to look for when looking for the perfect
