While you may imagine yourself walking into a home and being swept off your feet and knowing it is the right one for you, there may be some things you are overlooking in all those emotions that can ultimately help you enjoy a house much more once you are living in it. While you do want the house to look and feel right and be in a location you prefer, you should also think about other things that can make your life a lot easier and the home more comfortable and accommodating. If a home is lacking some of these things, you may want to see what else is out there. You might find another you like just as much that offers you more amenities that can make all the difference to your living environment.
Central heating and air conditioning can be a wonderful thing
If you live where it tends to get quite hot in the summer or pretty cold in the winter, then buying a home that has central heating and air conditioning can be fantastic. It will make it much easier for you to regulate the temperature throughout the entire home without your energy bills costing you an obscene amount of money.
You may want RV parking on the property
If you tend to have family visit who like to show up in their RV and stay out there at certain times of the day and/or night, then buying a place with RV parking can be a great thing. It will allow them to show up, hook up and visit you while also enjoying the comfort of their own place right outside your home. It can also be beneficial to you too, because it allows you to visit with them, yet not have them underfoot 24/7 and this can especially be helpful if they like to visit for good lengths of time.
A boat deep garage may be right if you have a boat
If you have a boat, you may want to add a boat deep garage to your list of preferred amenities if you live in a boating community. IN this type of community, they shouldn't be too hard to find and they give you the perfect place to park your boat where you know that it will be protected when not in use. Otherwise, you may find it getting damaged from almost constant sunlight, stray cats, and more.Share

Although I've never worked professionally in the real estate business, I sure know my way around it. How, do you ask? Well, I have simply rented a lot of different places and worked with a lot of different landlords and real estate agents. In the past 7 years I've lived in 11 different houses or apartments, none of them my own. In finding those 11, I have looked at literally hundreds of apartments. I used to hate house hunting, but now it's kind of fun. You just need to know what you want and the right questions to ask. Hopefully this blog can help you learn some of the tricks of the trade from another renter like yourself.
