You are going to be the most comfortable in your home if you have chosen one that fully caters to your lifestyle. The closer you can get to buying a home already set up for your family, the easier the entire move and transition is going to be on everyone. Here are some things you want to keep in the back of your mind when you go to look at houses through a place like Village Concepts Realty Group:
How close do you want the master suite to be to the other bedrooms?
If you have kids that you know are going to be bothering you with their loud games at night or loud play early in the morning then you may want to consider buying a home that has a split floorplan where the master suite is on one side and the kids rooms are on the other side. However, if you have very young kids that you want to be able to hear at all times, then you may want all the rooms to be situated on the same side of the house.
Do you need all that extra space?
If you are a relatively small family that doesn't tend to entertain very often, then you may want to forego that larger house that will cost more to buy and to maintain. You won't need to have a home with its own formal dining room if your family is more than content eating at your small dining table. You also won't need to go with a house that has a living room and a family room if you know that your family is going to spend the majority of their time in just one of the rooms and you have no other uses for the second room.
Do you really need those extra rooms?
If you are done growing your family and overnight guests are rare, then it may not be worth it to purchase a house with an extra room you can't think of a good use for. However, if you could use extra storage or have always thought it may be nice to have your own office, then you may want to go ahead and get that house.
Do you need all that land?
If you don't spend a lot of time in the yard and you aren't the kind of person who enjoys going out to mow the yard in the morning, then you may want to move past the house with the large yard that has a massive amount of grass and foliage to be cared for.
