You have grown out of your current space. You want a neighborhood with better schools, more services, and more community activities. You need a bigger home to give your family the space that they need to function. Recent studies show that about 64% of people wish that their home were larger. The two top concerns, as always, seemed 'price' and 'finding the right neighborhood'.

We Indians most of the time keep thinking about the wrong reasons. Whatever the reason that you are choosing to purchase a home, there are several things that you should keep in mind. While some of these factors may be out of your control due to the constraints of budget and housing availability, a priority list is important to determine which factors and characteristics are most important to your needs.

Neighborhood: Buying in a good neighborhood helps make sure your property goes up in value. Besides, it will be important to consider the ages of your children as well as the ages of the children in the neighborhood. It also should be a place that you will feel that your family is safe.

Bedroom/room space :
This is important if you are planning on more children, you need a playroom or are in need of a home office or a guest room. Interiors may be secondary but what is primary is having the space.

Bathrooms:
Make sure that you consider the number of bathrooms that you will need in the future as well as the amount of space that you have in each bathroom. You don't want fights in the morning with children who are getting ready for school.

Family Room:
Over time, your family room will change in its need. As a young family, it will be a playroom. As your children get older , it will be the hangout room. If the family room is too small or the children are too loud, consider a finished basement as an option for a hangout.

Schools: Kindergarten is right around the corner if you have young children. Make sure to visit the neighborhood schools, talk to the principal, teachers, and parents in the neighborhood. Look online to see standardised test scores. A good real estate agent will provide you with information about schools.

Crime: The neighborhood may look safe, but it could be riddled with incidents of theft or vandalism. Call local law enforcement agencies to see if the neighborhood you are considering has any specific crime problems.
