When people check a house listing and go into a home that's up for sale, they tend to spend a great deal of their time checking out the kitchen and bathrooms. These seem to be the main focus of a lot of buyer's attention. However, when you really think about it, this doesn't make very much sense, since these are two of the rooms in the entire house that they will be spending less time in than the others. They will more than likely be spending the majority of their time in either the living room, the family room, or their bedroom. Keeping this in mind, you want to make sure you are giving the bedrooms their proper due when you are looking at a home with the possible intention of making an offer to buy it.
Are there enough bedrooms?
Not only do you want to make sure everyone currently has enough bedrooms, but also you want to make sure that there are also going to be enough for the family you plan on growing. Don't worry about having an empty bedroom or two for the time being; you will be able to put it to good use. You can use it as a guest bedroom, as an office or even as a place to store your special items that you don't feel good about sticking out in the garage. Then, when the time comes that your family has expanded, you will have those bedrooms readily available which will be a whole lot easier than needing to move again into a larger home.
Are the bedrooms going to be large enough?
Take some time to go into each bedroom and make sure each one is going to be large enough. You may not know anything about dimensions when you read them on the information sheet for the house or hear them from the agent. However, when you see the bedroom, you can visualize everyone's belongings in each of the rooms. You don't want to buy a house only to find out that everyone has to downsize their bedroom furniture and no one feels comfortable in their own rooms.
Are the closets going to work?
You may not think that closets can be that big of a deal, but if you have a lot of clothing that you need to hang up and you end up with a bedroom that barely has a closet at all, then you are going to have a bit of a problem. Now, you can get yourself a standalone closet that you can situate somewhere in the bedroom to hang up some of your clothes, if you are going to be satisfied with this.Share
