Finding the right home can be challenging, even if you’ve been through the home buying process before. When looking at new homes, it’s important to remember that a good floor plan in a home makes life more enjoyable, and adds value to the home should you need to sell in the future. Some things to be looking for:
•A well designed kitchen space, with adequate counter space, outlets, and room for appliances.
•Stairways that are located in the front entry or other central positions.
•Flexible rooms that can be used for different purposes. One person’s second guest room is another’s office or home gym.
•A good bedroom to bathroom ratio, which can make all the difference. Typically two bathrooms for every 3 bedrooms will be sufficient.
•Light switches and outlets that have good placement throughout rooms.
