Buyers should consider the floor plan, it is difficult and expensive to reconfigure a home’s floor plan.  If the home doesn’t have the minimum number of rooms or flow of the living area you should cross it off your list.

You should pay attention to the condition of the neighboring homes.  Not only do you have to live with your neighbors on a daily basis, but they can affect your home’s future value.

Consider all expenses, monthly mortgage payments, utility costs, and real estate taxes, beyond the list price to make sure you are financially comfortable.
