Q: What type of home do you want?
As you look for a new home, consider your current needs and tastes and whether they are likely to change. If you are single do you anticipate getting married? If you are married, do you plan to have children? If you need flexibility, you may want a traditional single-family home that you can later expand. A condominium or cluster type may better suit your needs if you prefer to avoid yard maintenance. If you or a member of your household has a disability, your builder may be able to build special features such as ramps, wider doorways or more accessible counter heights as well as electrical switches to better accommodate your needs.
Q: What style of home do you want?
Do you want one floor living such as a ranch, where all the bedrooms are on the first floor? Or would you instead like a Cape Cod where the master is on the first floor and there are more bedrooms on the second floor? Or would you prefer a more traditional style such as a colonial home, where all of the bedrooms are on the second floor?
Q: What characteristics do you want in your new home?
Do you want a large or a small home? How many bedrooms and baths do you need? Do you prefer open spaces or smaller, cozier rooms? Is a large, well-equipped kitchen important? How about a family room, a study, a computer room, an entertainment room, or a workout area? What special amenities are important to you? Would you like a basement, a fireplace, a porch, a deck or skylights?

Do you want a home with a private yard or a neighborhood with lots of people? Is freeway access important? How long will your drive be to work? Do you need to be close to an airport? Are their schools and churches close by their recreation available?
