What’s the number one thing you need to get straightened out before you move? No, it’s not the moving truck or the supplies…it’s your next home, obviously. Let’s hope you’re reading this, not because you’re already almost packed up and ready to move, but you’re planning on moving and don’t have a home lined up yet. While looking for a new home, there are things to keep in mind before you even start looking, so take these things into consideration.

Keep This in Mind while Looking for a New Home


Ask yourself: why are you moving? Is it to be closer to work or school, or to be further away from the noise and confusion of city life? After that, think about how close you want to be to the store or other useful businesses and conveniences you use often. Now, mentally map out an area that fits your criteria. That process will help you approximate location of your future home.


If you’re wondering what a new home should have, you should start with safety. After you find a convenient location, scope out the neighborhood and decide if it’s good enough for you to live in and if fits exactly what you want. There are multiple neighborhoods and communities in any general location, so you should be able to find something that suits your needs.


Before looking for a new home, get a good measurement of how much space you’ll need. You don’t have to calculate in every single one of your possessions, but you do need to have some kind of idea of how all your belongings will fit together in one house or apartment. Once you get the size of it all planned out, start looking. You should also keep room sizes and numbers in consideration.


The kitchen is a vital element in the home—a deciding factor for most, in fact. You know they say you can always remodel your home, but that can be very expensive and stressful. So, instead, look for a kitchen that’s already complete in achieving exactly what you want. Look at the general layout of the kitchen and remember that you can always change the colors and appliances.


Windows are sources of natural light in your home. If they’re scarce, your home will be dungeon-like. On the other hand, if they’re too excessive, you’ll fee burnt in sunlight. You should also consider window placement, meaning your windows take into account the sunrise and the sunset. These elements bring in a lot of natural light that can actually save you money on your electric bill. Another thing folks often forget about windows: will your gigantic headboard, dresser, or TV fit between the windows?
