3 Factors to Check When Comparing Homes for Sale, Centerville, Iowa

Are you in the market for a new home? Then chances are you’ve seen homes for sale that you aren’t sure how to accurately compare. Approach the task systematically by using the following three points from Bogle Realty in Centerville, IA. Their team’s experience has consistently proven these tips truly work to help you find your dream home.

What to Look for When Home Shopping

1. Location

Location is widely acclaimed as the golden rule of real estate. View homes for sale that are near your frequently visited locations, such as work, your children’s school, or family. Research the neighborhood to make sure it’s safe and fits your lifestyle. If you notice many homes for sale in the same area, be wary of a potential economic problem. 

2. Lot

The lot itself is as important as the home. For example, a large yard may be too difficult to maintain with your busy schedule. Further, you should consider future plans for the home. If the lot is extremely narrow or steep, it may be impossible to get that pool you’ve always wanted.

3. Bedrooms & Bathrooms

From there, it’s easier to compare the desired specifications. For example, one home may offer bigger bedrooms, while another has a full master suite. 

Your home search may require some compromises, but using these three tips from Bogle Realty helps you compare potential properties to make the best selection. The members of this team pride themselves on developing a relationship to personalize your real estate search.
