What advice would you give to help me decide between my two favorite houses?
You can make such a tough decision easier by going back to your starting point. Ask yourself these questions:
- Review your priorities
Do both properties meet your stated housing needs?
- Seek new information
What else should you know about the house, the neighborhood, local schools, transportation, and community facilities?
- Get out the crystal ball
How long do you expect to stay in your next home, and how will each house fit your expected needs and lifestyle over that time period?
- Compare the added features for each home
Are there benefits that outweigh any shortfalls in your priority list?
- Keep resale in mind
If you intend to move in five or 10 years, which home will probably be easier to resell?
- Analyze the costs of both homes
How does the price of each compare, and how do the long-term costs such as heat, local taxes and fees, transportation and other day-to-day living expenses stack up?
