What to Look For, Room by Room

What to Look For, Room by Room

When seeing a house for sale, many purchasers take a “macro” view of the property. They ask themselves questions such as “Is it spacious enough?” “Is there an adequate number of bedrooms?” and “Is it located in a desirable neighborhood?” While these are critical considerations, it’s also worthwhile to explore a prospective new house on a “micro” level.

Consider the following:

There is a living room and a family room. Are they sufficiently big to accommodate all of the furniture? Are the rooms suitable for family gatherings and entertainment? Is it necessary to have a separate living room and family room?

Kitchen. Is it necessary to have adequate space in the kitchen and dining area to dine comfortably? Is there sufficient cupboard and other storage space in the kitchen? Is your refrigerator going to fit?

Bathroom. Is the bathroom on the main floor excessively small? Is your ensuite bathroom equipped with all of the amenities you require, such as a huge tub and/or separate shower? Do you need dual sinks?

Bedrooms. Is the master bedroom sufficiently spacious to accommodate the bed and other furniture? Is it equipped with the closet space you require? Are the additional bedrooms enough for your needs? (It’s a good idea to take measurements of these rooms since it’s tough to assess them during a viewing.)

Space for storage. This is especially critical if you’re in the market for a condominium. Is the storage space or locker large enough for your needs?
Closets. Are there sufficient closets to meet your needs? Is there a linen closet in the room?

Garage. The garage is used for a variety of purposes by homeowners. If you want to utilize this area for storage or hobbies, ensure that the garage is acceptable.
