Finding a new home is not just about an open floor plan, or a large kitchen.
What factors go into a decision?
Location. Do you like the neighborhood? How far must you drive daily to work? Is there shopping close by? Are schools important.
Is it in a flood zone? What is the jet noise zone it’s located in?
Is it located in a historical district?
The property itself. What is the age of the house? What type of heat and air conditioning does it have?
Is it updated or does it require updating? Are you a DIYer and looking for something to invest some
sweat equity into?
