You’re looking for a new home. With so many great homes for sale in DeBary, FL, how will you decide? The perfect home for one family can feel very wrong to another. Much of this has to do with the size of the house.
Even among single-family homes, a three bedroom house and a six bedroom house is going to be vastly different inside. Which is the right new home for you? Let’s look at how to answer this dilemma right now.
How big a home do you truly need? Remember, bigger isn’t always better- especially when it comes to paying your bills and keeping it clean! Most people shopping for new homes for sale in DeBary, FL aren’t looking for “as big as possible,” but rather “the perfect fit.”
A few questions to ask in order to get you looking in the right direction. We encourage you to begin the process by asking these:
Let’s say you’re a newly-married couple with no children- yet. You plan on having a baby within the next few years, and then several more over the next decade or so.
You’ll need to answer this question in order to know whether you should be looking into a townhouse, a three bedroom house, or something a bit larger. Do you plan to start here and move on in a few years or live in a large house your family eventually grows into?
The space inside a house isn’t necessarily all in the bedrooms. Do you work from home and need an office? Maybe you dream of chilling out in your man cave or exercising in an at-home gym. If so, a den or nook will be a top priority for you.
Perhaps hosting dinner parties and game nights is something that is important to you. In this case, you’ll want to ensure your home has enough square footage to comfortably seat your friends and loved ones.
It would be a mistake to think solely of bedrooms and bathrooms and ignore your family’s need for storage space. Did you know that the average American home contains 300,000 items? A house that is technically large enough for you, but not all of your stuff, isn’t going to feel like the perfect match for long. A cluttered home won’t feel big enough, even if it is.
The first thing to consider is your garage size. Do you need a one-, two-, or three- car garage? Beyond this, consider the closets, attic, and other storage options within the home. A smaller home with plenty of hallway storage and walk-in closets in the bedroom may end up feeling more spacious than a house with technically more square footage but little places to put all your things. Don’t forget about a kitchen pantry big enough for all of your cooking and food essentials!
After the size of the house, the neighborhood your new home is in is the second most-important decision to make. Those looking for homes for sale in DeBary, FL are sure to have a much easier time making this decision. Take a look at Rivington!
