Finding the Right Indianapolis Home for Your Family

Posted by Dennis Nottingham on Monday, February 18th, 2013 at 9:19am.

There are a number of important factors to consider when purchasing a new home. Whether you're looking for a place to start a family, a place where your family can grow, or a place to meet your needs as your children grow up and move on, you'll want to weigh your family's needs as well as your tastes and desires before making your home-buying choice.

Location, Location, Location

The first consideration you'll want to take into account is the location of your new home. If you have children or will have children soon, you'll want to make sure that your home is located within the boundaries of the best school districts. You'll also want to consider the proximity of your new home to places like parks, grocery stores, shopping, nightlife, your work, and any nearby family or friends. A RE/MAX Advanced Realty agent can help you make sense of all the neighborhoods that you're considering and provide you with insider advice regarding which areas might be best suited to your family's needs.

Do You Need More Space?

Once you've got your neighborhood picked out, you'll want to find a home that's big enough for your family. You'll want to consider lot size as well as the size of the actual house. A big yard is great both for having a place for your kids to play safely and to give you the extra space you might need to add an extension to your house if you'd like. Whether you're looking for a cozy two bedroom or a sprawling five bedroom home, your real estate agent can help you find all of the perfect Indianapolis homes for sale that might be right for you.

Safe, Solid Construction and Inspection

You'll also want to be sure to choose a house that is well constructed. If you have the time to renovate a fixer-upper home, you'll certainly be making a good investment. But if you're like most families, you'll want to choose a house that is safe, sturdy, and ready to meet all of the needs of your family. Having an agent on your side when you make your purchase will give you the confidence of knowing that your future home has been properly inspected and that all the right questions have been asked before you make your final decision.
