Buy What Fits Your Lifestyle
Price isn’t the only thing that matters when buying a home. A home that is a good investment doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the right home for you.

When you’re looking to purchase a home, you can’t only be concerned about what the smartest financial investment is. That’s not to say that you should ignore the price, but you should take your lifestyle into consideration, too. In the past you may have only been concerned with getting a great deal. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to get a great deal when buying a home, considering your lifestyle really is hugely important.
We have had clients before that made the “smart” purchase and ended up not being happy long term. They got the “great deal” and have the “great monthly note” but after the newness wears off, they realize it’s really not what they want. The home may be too far away from the activities they enjoy, too far from friends and family, the new home has more yard maintenance than they want to deal with. Not to mention if you don’t stay in the home long enough to build equity and move on to the next property, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. It’s important to take into consideration what you do in your spare time, what your lifestyle looks like, and which rooms you utilize the most.Really think about that lifestyle and consider whether it might fit better in a condo or townhome than a traditional single-family home. Also consider the home’s proximity to activities you enjoy with friends and family.
There’s much more to consider about a home than its price.
