Some things to consider:
1) Make sure what you can afford. You don’t want to look at homes that are out of reach, it only causes heartbreak.
2) Consider location and commute to work. Is it important for you to stay within a 15-minute commute or do you not mind an hour-long commute?
3) If you have children, check out the school systems.
4) Are there shops, restaurants and parks nearby?
You should consider all of these before buying a home to avoid regretting your choice.
And of course, ask your local real estate agent to help you!
