Looking to buy a home? Here are the top 8 things you should be looking for:

1) Neighborhood

A great house deserves a great neighborhood. Research local schools, amenities, and the overall vibe. 

2) Floor plan

Imagine your daily life in this space. Can you see yourself living here comfortably? Is there room to grow into it?

3) Major home systems

Get to know the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. A home inspection can save you from expensive surprises.

4) Exterior

First impressions matter. Assess curb appeal, maintenance needs, and potential repairs.

5) Natural light

Bright spaces can improve your mood and save on energy bills. Open those curtains and take a good look.

6) Signs of damage

Keep an eye out for any red flags like water damage, mold, or structural issues. 

7) Garage

Does it fit your car(s) and storage needs? Don't forget this crucial space.

8) Renovation needs

Assess and price any updates or renovations. It's all about making the house your own.
