exciting, as it is stressful at most times. Sometimes, it is because it is one huge financial investment and you are pressured to not make any mistakes. Sometimes, it is because you have so many options. On other occasions, you simply don’t know where to start.

So what exactly do you want?

You, too, have probably been asked to draw, paint or make a poster of your dream home when you were younger. As you had the freedom to make your dream home into anything, you may have drawn the most elaborate home that you had ever imagined. However, it may not be the case when actually buying a home. Oftentimes, you’d be restricted by different factors that will make you trim down the home that you want into the home that you actually need.

How big is the home that you’d like to buy? This often depends on the size of the household. Are you single? Are you getting married? If you are, are you planning to have children? Where do you want your home to be located? Do you want to get a home in the city or in the countryside? When choosing a location, you’d also want to consider many factors such as accessibility, proximity to your work place and availability of public transport. You would also need to consider the kind of environment. Is it safe?  Is it crowded? If you are concerned about your health, and generally, you should be, you’d also want to look for a location with fresh air, plants and trees in the neighborhood.

The list of your requirements for what you want could go on and on. If you have a real estate agent, discuss with him or her all these requirements that you have so he or she can help you better in getting the home you need.

How much can you afford is a big question as well. Some may advise that you’d need to set your budget first before setting your requirements. Others do it the other way around. In whichever way you prefer, budget must always be defined. Once you have, determine all other financial matters that you need to help you in purchasing your home such as consolidating your debts, maximizing your money by using high-interest accounts, and checking your credit rating. That way, you will find it much easier to start looking.
