Even if you know what you want, it can be hard to sort out what is crucial, and what is merely a “nice to have.” Here are three home features that you don’t want to compromise on, and three more that you should ignore. 

Neighborhood 

You’ve probably heard it before, but it bears repeating: Location is essential. Even more so if you have kids and want to get in a certain school district. You can change many things about a house, but location isn’t one of them. When you’re house hunting, look for a home that works for you in the best neighborhood you can afford. Like a neighborhood? Check it at different times of day. A neighborhood can be quite different at night, or during commute times. 

House size and layout 

Does the size and layout of the house work for your family? Think about how long you plan to live in the house and what your future needs might be. Thinking about starting a family in a few years? Maybe working from home? Home remodeling TV shows might make it look easy to knock down walls, but it will cost a lot more than you think. Consider the size and location of the lot, too. You might not mind a busy street, but it could hurt your resale value.

Natural light



Pay attention to the way the house faces and the amount of natural light. A home that faces north, with small windows and a lot of surrounding trees may feel like a cave in the winter. On the other hand, a west-facing house with no shade may be blazing hot in the summer. Yes, you may be able to add lighting, or plant trees for more shade, but be sure to consider your preferences and what’s possible, given the house layout and surroundings.


When in doubt, remember that as your agent, I can be your best resource in helping you understand what might be deal breakers.
