Certain measures that you should look into without deciding. When you are needing to move because you are wanting to live in a bigger or smaller house it is often stressful for everyone involved. The first step is to find the perfect house that has a majority of the things you want along with not going over your budget. It would be a shame to move into a house and end up having to move out of it because, you did not do the calculations right and realize that you cannot afford it. If you decide to purchase a house that is cheaper but, needs some upgrading I would purchase one in which you feel comfortable with the price and have the time to do the necessary things that need to be done with it. No one wants to spend a lot of their time or energy into fixing a house that they had just bought especially after just moving into it and after working long hours at there job. Before moving into any neighborhood I would greatly advise the home buyers to talk with the neighbors. By doing so you are able to get the information about the neighborhood that the realtor did not know or that the current home owners did not want you too know since their overall goal is to sell their house. Another thing you might need to look into is the property taxes that you will need to pay every year. After you purchase the home it is important that you are immediately are having money put aside to pay them or have them paid through your mortgage that you are taking out.
