It's National Homeownership Month in June and here's Reason #3 why you should own your own home:

 

YOU WANT MORE LIVING SPACE TO MOVE AROUND

 

 

Reason #3 To Own Your Own Home

 

 

If you increasingly feel like that proverbial "goldfish in a bowl" and are running out of space, it may be time to consider buying your own home--especially now, while interest rates are still very low and homes reasonably affordable.

 

If you are considering buying your own home to increase your living space, here are some considerations to keep in mind:

 

  • Family Size: is your family growing? How fast is it growing? Will you need to accommodate the needs of an elderly parent at any time in the forseeable future? You want to be sure you don't grow out of your "new" space too quickly. When thinking about family size and needs, think in terms of at least a 7 to 10 year time frame.

  • Your Lifestyle: do you entertain alot? Do you have frequent of out-of-town visitors? Do you specific hobbies, interests that need space? Do you work from home and need a home office?

  • Your Priorities: depending on your lifestyle and preferences what is most important to you? Large kitchen, bigger bedrooms, bigger entertaining space, outdoor space for kids and entertaining? Unless money is no object, you need to decide what you will or won't compromise in a home.

  • Physical Considerations: is there a need for bedroom space on the main floor of a home; or do you need a home with no stairs, whatsoever or do you need wider doorways to accommodate a wheelchair? Think through any physical impediments/issues in advance so that you know your new home can serve your specific needs.

Nina these are all excellent things to consider, and they are all equally important in my opinion.

George Souto ~ I agree. I would be hard-pressed to organize them in an order of importance, myself.

Thanks, Kathy Streib. Ours is a home with master down plus 2 more bedrooms on the main floor and two bedrooms + bonus on the second floor. One of the main floor bedrooms is my office. The second floor huge bonus room is my busband's office and man cave.

Roger D. Mucci ~ that's true for alot of people as they get older. And then there are people like me--lots of grandchildren, no local family, so I need space to accommodate them when they desend on me. As I always say, no one comes to my house for dinner--they come for a week of dinners!
