What Size Home Works Best for You?

Big homes are exciting. They provide more space, more privacy, and more accommodation. But before selecting a large home, here are three questions you should ask yourself to determine what size home works best for you:

  1. What are my family’s needs? Look at your family’s long-term plan. If you are planning on staying in this home for a long period of time, you need to buy a home that will meet your family’s needs in the future. For example, if you are looking to grow your family by having a couple of children, then buy a bigger home. But if your children are going to be going to college soon, then a larger home will quickly become too big.
  2. Will it be practical for you to clean a large home? The bigger the home, the more time and energy you are going to invest in keeping it clean. If you and your spouse work full-time jobs and have children, are you going to be able to keep up with cleaning a large home? With a smaller home, you will have less area to clean and most likely fewer belongings. People grow into their home.
  3. Can you afford it? Having a larger home means more area to furnish. You will have to buy more, and perhaps larger furniture and decorations to be able to fill the space. You will also need to be able to afford the maintenance of a larger home. The majority of maintenance costs will be more expensive as there will be a larger roof, more windows, a bigger yard, and so forth.

In the end, though these questions will help you make your decision, you have to take into account your own personal preference. It is your home and you want it to be a home that you are excited to live in for the next 5, 10, 15 years. A small home is going to be cozier but a large home will be accommodating for guests. Pick the home that will meet you and your family’s wants and needs.
