5 Things To Consider Before Becoming A Homeowner

Here's everything you need to know before you decide to move to a new home.

Owning a home is a dream that everyone aspires to turn into a reality in due time. And when it does happen, it can be an overwhelming, but more so, an exciting experience. But before you head off to the furniture store to check on which pieces will fit your new home, here are important factors to consider first when choosing the perfect home for you and your family. 

Do the amenities suit your lifestyle?

If you are a sports enthusiast, a community with recreational spaces and nature-oriented spots may be fitting. If you are looking for an engaging weekend activity for your kids, then an amenity area that includes a swimming pool will make weekends for the family even more enjoyable and memorable. Additionally, for big and special gatherings like family reunions, birthday bashes, a fully functional clubhouse may be on your must-have list. This will definitely be more cost efficient and convenient.

Is it in a convenient location?

Some people are jumping towards the suburban sprawl-- buying larger homes in nearby areas. Although it can entail a longer drive compared to living in the metro, you'll find more breathing space as you head home. Ideal provinces include Cavite, Rizal, Bulacan and Laguna. Living in these areas offer a more laidback experience.

You also need to make sure you choose a home that is in a community where everything is within reach, such as schools, groceries and supermarkets. This will cut back the amount of time you spend on the road, giving you more time to actually enjoy the company of your family or spend some me-time to relax and unwind.

Is it in a secured area?

Make sure you choose a community protected by reliable security features that include CCTV, a strict and well-manned guard house, additional security measures by the community or homeowners' association, and ability to contact the nearest fire station in case of emergencies. Making sure your area is secure will allow you to live with ease, knowing that your child can play outside, safe from any threats and danger.

You also need to check out your potential neighbors. An ocular visit may help you form impressions about the neighborhood and the people living in it. For pre-selling offers, make sure to also check the areas surrounding the subdivision or village. 

Is it within your house maintenance budget?

Achieving your dream entails hard work. The monthly bills, the home loan payments, and the commute or new gasoline expenses from your transportation needs are some of your new home's included responsibilities. Spending for maintenance can also be good for you in the long run as it promotes value appreciation of your property and community.

Does it have a good developer track record?

Get help from companies that you trust and whose construction quality gives you your money's worth. Make sure you check out the actual communities of the real estate developer to give you a better idea of the type of environment that they can offer and the quality of the development that they have.

Making that big decision to invest in a home can be scary, but there is nothing more fulfilling than coming home to a space that you know is truly yours.
