Choosing to purchase a home in paradise is an exciting life decision that requires some initial considerations to ensure you find the perfect place.
Before browsing listings, reflect on the following questions:
How large does the house have to be? Will my family and freinds want to visit and stay?
How many rooms and bathrooms are required?
Condo, or house with a yard?
Will I have a vehicle or need to be walking distance to shopping?
The cost to be "on the beach" is significant, can I live close to a beach instead?
How important is having a house close to downtown, Costco or the beach, will I need public transportation?
In which areas of the city would you like to live? Are there areas that you want to avoid?
What will the HOA or condo fees be like?
Can I lock it up and only use it for a few months a year?
Can I rent it out when I am not using it?
Are there special considerations required for hobbies, guests, potential additions to the family, physical limitations or disabilities?
