Consider the items that are required in your new home. Start with the essentials such as how much space you need, how many bedrooms or bathrooms are needed, where you want to live or how many parking spaces are needed for your car. Once this is determined, you can move to assessing how your new home will support the way you live: do you prefer open concept living or like smaller rooms? Do you need a home office for working from home? Will kids need separate space to work or play? Once you go through the process of determining your needs, you will have a better understanding of what type of home to be looking for and where!
