Tags: VIEWING HOMES, TOP TIPS, REFINE YOUR SEARCH

When it comes to home searching, there are many things to consider! Oftentimes we need to think about what is missing as much as what is there. By doing so, you eliminate many homes and further refine your search to the homes that are worth pursuing! 
 
Here are our top tips of what to look for when searching for a home: 

  1. Room Shape and Size
Walk into every room and think about how certain furniture might fit or be laid out in a room.  A good tip is to pre-measure your furniture dimensions prior to viewing a property so that you have a rough estimate on how every room will be utilized in your home searching process. 
 
  1. Parking 
Just like rooms where you’re looking for a space that fits your needs and desires, make sure your cars will be able to fit as well. Ensure you are provided with adequate parking spots to fit your needs!
 
  1. Watch out for moisture 
It is always a good idea to see if there are moisture issues in a home. Areas such as the bathroom, laundry room, kitchen etc. are crucial places to keep an eye out. Inspect the ceilings for any moisture damage as you walk through the home. We tend to not look up, so keep in mind to look around! 
 
  1. Check the Neighbourhood 
Invest some time in the neighbourhood. It is always worth taking a stroll around the area to assess how close everyday amenities and services are to the home. Things to consider vary between every person’s needs and desires. However, location, public transport, school, and shops tend to be valued highly!
