There are a lot of things to think about when buying a home.  Like renovations and if you can afford or handle them.  Look at the windows and ceiling, think about if you will need repairs in the near future.  Make sure to hire a home inspector to clarify the deep issues of the house you are looking at.  Also, look at the kitchen and bathrooms to see if you would want them renovated.  Would the house still be worth it after putting all the renovation money into it?  When thinking to buy a home, treat it like it is your own.  Take your daily steps through the home to see how it “fits.”  Is there enough room in the kitchen, bedroom, and even the garage?  Would you have enough space to fit all your belongings and move around comfortably?  Make sure that the sinks, toilet, lights, etc. work properly.  Don’t wait until it is too late, do all these things before buying the home, think long-term.
