Personal tastes: How large a home do you need? What style of architecture do you prefer? On what kind of lot?
Budget: How much home is wise for you to own.
When you’re ready buy a home in Colorado, the first thing you should do is focus on exactly what you’re looking for. Establishing your priorities in these three areas is a start: There is also the question of whether or not to buy a new home. New homes tend to have more spacious living and family rooms, and they’re generally easier to maintain. Taxes may be lower in the older homes, as well as having larger lot sizes.
Many people are charmed by the character of an older home, but deterred by potential maintenance costs.
If you’re thinking of buying a new construction home, there are other matters to take into account. How long is it going to take to build, the money you can spend at the design center, and making sure that the loan officer has all the needed paperwork to get you into your new home.
