6 Tips to Find your Dream Home

When looking for the most dependable home for sale in St. George, remember these wise tips:

Envision your future


Moving into a new home takes a lot of energy and resources. Ask yourself, “Can I
see my family living here 10 years from now?” The longer you stay in your new home, the more expenses you can avoid (closing costs, moving costs, etc.) In some cases you can even ride out a downturn in the housing market.


Leave some growing room

Find a home that is adaptable to your lifestyle changes. Life throws unexpected challenges your way, and that spare bedroom may be perfect for your elderly mother-in-law someday. If a large home is out of your budget, look for one that can be added onto if the need arises.


Be adaptable

Rooms that serve multiple functions allow your home to grow with you. Open style floor plans are useful because they allow you to keep an eye on your youngsters as well as entertain your adult friends when the kids move out.


Find your adobe type

Condo, townhouse, or traditional home – What fits you best? There’s a little bit of everything in St. George. Single family homes on a private lot give you privacy and space, but they may not be a great choice for someone who would rather not be bothered with mowing the lawn or regular home maintenance. Condos on the other hand let you come and go as you please while requiring less responsibility, but you will share a wall with your neighbors.


Study the location

The asking price for a home has as much to do with the area it’s in as the actual house itself. Take a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood. Is this a community you’d love to be a part of? If there’s a chance the quiet 2-lane neighborhood street could become a noisy 4-laner one day, look elsewhere.


Resist exceeding your budget

It’s easy to overspend when buying a home, but resist the temptation. Buy a home you can afford, and hang onto that extra cash for future expenses. New furniture, fun landscaping, or *gulp* property taxes, take money.
