So what is the best thing to look for in a house?

So what is the best thing to look for in a house?

Many of us fail to look at our lifestyles before we get caught up in the price of a home that we are considering buying. And believe me there is a real headache in selling a home that no one wants to buy for the same reasons you want to sell it. So here is a short list of things to look for in a house that the majority has been asking for.

First, think open. Nobody likes walls. Fewer walls mean more natural light. Of course you can consider a project to remove a wall or two but you may have to scrape the ceilings and re-spray them to help them blend in with the walls you removed.

Next, think large windows. Again, the more natural light that enhances your living environment, you won’t have to be taking those vitamin D pills to brighten your mood artificially.

And last on my short list is a room with a view. If you can enjoy one room for it’s view, you might just spend most of your time there. Everyone needs some place where they can retreat and recharge. If you can’t afford the view, then allow some budgeting for artwork and lighting that lifts your spirit on a daily basis.

So there it is, as easy as 1-2-3, openness, windows, and view. Some other things worth looking for is larger bedroom sizes and a nice kitchen. Happy house hunting!
