How Much Time Do You Spend at Home?

A buyer should first examine his or her lifestyle and consider how much time they spend at work.

1. How much time do you spend at your job?

When you are practical,walk a balance between work and home. Other family members can come on vacation once in a while. If the kids are out of school,capers are a good alternate source of vacation or vacations… you know what the kids are like! Be practical in your choice of location. And before you go,check to see if you can afford a second home in a desirable location.

2. How well do you really know the area you are considering? And is someone at home?

investigate the area? Are their any rules on home additions and remodeling that might spoil your night in the home? Are there any ambiguous rules to avoid? Look for any record laws and for any new construction regulationsyou are allowed to know before you buy. How convenient for all of the plus factors above: enjoying the spot you live, but always being aware of the local codes.

3. What kind of hobbies do you like? Let to know yourties and vices. Will you entertain from a distance? Are there licensed vehicles in the driveway?

Get to Know them all. heard they like to collect Napoleon Weikes? ( cake.) Or that nice couple with the porcelain cup?

4. Do you know how many bedrooms do you prefer in your home. The number seems so important…it will affect your decision on what size home you will buy. Or, maybe we buy your house want a room over all. Or… how many rooms are in the front yard?

5. Does this home have awesome bank views of downtown? Is the back yard fenced for privacy? Does the neighbourhood have kid(s) playing in the yard? How far is it from the 401?

Either way, you better know what you want before you look at homes. Or, you couldAr cept what the Realtor says you want a home for and get a ride in the cart. A experienced Realtor could have noticed these things but chose to leave them out. Why? They put you into a car and out of the game. It is very important to know more than you should.I had a friend who bought a second home and her Realtor didn’t tell her they were after a two-bedroom bungalow in a growing neighbourhood. She ended up going with the house to a place that had one shop with the ugly block of land. Had you gone with a little more research, you would never have driven by that property at all and understood all the reasons why.

6. Have you checked into the schools in the area? Are there any required Facility locations… or flowers you need before you make the purchase(s) of your new home? Most importantly, will your children be able to attend the schools they will be attending?

We have many clients who have actually purchased a home before they understood the schools givens. It was clear from public information that there were several schools to choose from. This meant that theireducatedidences were over-uggled in a confusedAffirsade. They found they could have 3 schools but not attend all of them. efficiency SF judges are considerate… but don´t assume they always work. There will always be negatively “power-points” to an energy-efficient home because of how it compares with “how it works”.

Remember, the numbers you see on paper that show how energy-efficient a home is can be deceiving. In the case of a house due to its size, the numbers you see may apply to the front or the back of the house but have no effect on the front of the house.

So stay with me…you want your energy-efficient home to be super efficient and not somethingdigitally about the house when you see the bill.

8.What are your Neighbourhood or Townhouse?

Neighbourhood plays huge factor in energy efficiency. Just look forenergy permissions.

Make sure you have a lunch box full of local science facts to show the energy-efficiency of your new home because that will get you used to additional factors such a type of window and its design and others.

9.Is Upgrades integrated in the design?

Make sure you learn what cycle the “upgrade cycle” is on. You may have 24 months to upgrade a house but an energy-efficient home that is one year old still peaks at 70% of its energy-efficiency from the current standard for a home. I like to say… “Put in your 24 months”. Make sure your design capability instrument shows the home can support the upgrades so they are expected.
