Perhaps now that new members of the family have arrived, it is time to change houses, because the one you live in has become too small for you. Or maybe you need a change of scene and this is the best time to look for a new home. In one case and in another, it is best to inform yourself well in a real estate portal that can recommend the best property based on your preferences and possibilities.

And for you to go to advise you with the most information in your hands, we want to provide you with a few tricks that will come in handy to assess all the options at your fingertips.

First, visit several homes that catch your eye. Many times we run the risk of opting for the first one we visit and we really like it. It is something very logical, but it is good that you bear in mind that the same thing happens with the house as with other purchases: there may be more than one option that you like a lot. It would be a shame to keep the first one to discover in a short time that there was another even more attractive within our reach.
Take a good look at the space of the house you visit, how it is organized and how you could distribute your belongings and furniture. The distribution may not quite fit with the idea you had in mind. In that case, don't worry and keep studying other alternatives. It would not hurt to think about the use that you may need to give it in the future, with other rooms to occupy if younger children come to the family or you have to take care of a family member.
During your visits, study very well the orientation of the house or apartment in question. Do you get the light you would like in the morning? And afternoon? Is the façade aligned in the direction that the wind blows and rains usually blows? All these factors are decisive to achieve the comfort you need and avoid problems such as humidity on the walls or excessive cold in winter. If there is no other option, it would not hurt to think about thermally insulating the facade to avoid this problem.
It is always appreciated to live near places such as hospitals, pharmacies and also shops where we can make our purchases without having to travel more than a few meters. Therefore, take note of the location of the home you are thinking of buying or renting, and its proximity to all these services.
Ask the neighbors about the living conditions related to the area in which the property is located: neighborhood tranquility, whether or not it is a conflictive area, etc.
The quality of the materials is also a point to take into account, since if it is not very good in the long run it will give us problems and, in addition to the loss of comfort, we will have to make new investments in repairs.
If you like the house but it would be necessary to do some work, such as to install that American kitchen with a bar that you have dreamed of so much, how much will it cost? It may be a good idea to find a home that already includes you at a similar price.
Environmental noise can become a real problem on a day-to-day basis, so check if the area is very noisy and if the house incorporates soundproofed windows.
As environmental conditions change from one day to the next, and even during the same day they can go through several phases, it is best that you visit the home you like a couple of times at least, if it can be during the day and also in the evening.
Finally, do not get carried away by the initial euphoria and make sure that the price they ask is the right one for this property based on its square meters, location, age, quality of construction, etc.

Building security is usually more controlled than in a home.
The sale price per square meter in an apartment is usually higher than that of a house depending on its location.

The quality of life is also influenced by the physical health of the subject, psychological state, level of independence, social relationships and the relationship with the essential elements of their environment.

For all the above, it is important that you take into account the social environment in which your new home is located, since your children will grow up there. Who will their friends be? Who will they play with? And mainly, how will your security be. Evaluate if they will have areas where they can develop physically, practice sports, exercise, walk, distract themselves and something very important: where you and your partner can relax, away from city stress.
