Our House Hunting Checklist

We are starting to hunt for housing this month and cannot be more excited about the process! There are normal things we are looking for, like number of bedrooms, bathroom, location, etc. (read more about our house hunting priorities), but more important, we want to pick a house that feels right. 

I put together a little house hunting checklist for each place we visit. Some are deal breakers (see: convenient parking, yard), and others are just preferences I really want (see: sunny kitchen, nooks, fireplace, bathroom medicine cabinets), but I think all are realistic and I am hopeful we can find all these things within our budget, things such as:

Natural Light: Along with a sunny kitchen, consider natural light throughout the house. Bright, well-lit spaces can contribute to a more welcoming and uplifting atmosphere, while if you want to keep your house really clean and eliminate all the mold, using services like Mold Removal Manalapan could be the best choice for you.

Storage Space: Adequate storage space can make a big difference in keeping your home organized and clutter-free. Check for closets, cabinets, and pantry space to accommodate your needs.

Outdoor Living Space: In addition to a yard, consider any outdoor living spaces like a patio, deck, or balcony where you can relax and entertain.

Energy Efficiency: Look for features such as energy-efficient appliances, windows, and insulation, which can help save on utility bills and reduce your environmental footprint.
