Spring is arguably the best time of the year to buy or sell a home but it is definitively the busiest time of the year in real estate. Many people are practically bursting to get out of their homes after being cooped up all winter and spring always offers a fresh perspective as well as a fresh market.
According to a study from the National Association of Home Builders, on average you should not only plan to cover your down payment, closing costs and incidentals, you should also factor in that a new home often means wanting to buy new furnishings! New home purchases on average mean spending up to $10k on average on new furnishings, appliances or repairs.
As you look to beautify your new home, we hope that you won’t forget about the square footage that isn’t factored into the home itself – your OUTSIDE square footage!
Although creating an outdoor oasis by utilizing your patio, four seasons porch or deck is not on the list of “TOP things to do when you purchase a new home” it IS a way to extend your living space and more specifically, your enjoyment space.
