What size home should I buy?


Home size is a very personal decision. To decide the size that’s right for you, consider the minimum number of bedrooms and bathrooms you’ll need for your family. Are you expecting your family to grow, but right now a smaller home can accommodate your needs? You may want to select a home with space that can be remodeled in the future, such as a basement or attic area. These changes can be costly, so plan carefully when selecting a home with barely adequate space. Perhaps you’re facing an empty nest in the near future. You can then consider whether to downsize your home or convert bedrooms to hobby spaces or guest rooms. One key factor in choosing a home size is upkeep. Heating and cooling large, airy spaces can be expensive. A further upkeep reminder: maintaining a large yard can be a joy if gardening is your hobby, but it can be a burden if you’d rather spend your free time indoors. To choose the proper size home for you, consider the space you’re living in now, and whether you expect to need more or less in the future.
