2. Location This category requires asking yourself quite a few questions to determine where you would like to live. Which type of neighborhood would best suit your needs (i.e. Is this neighborhood safe? Is the neighborhood full of families, singles, retirees?) Do you want to be near a body of water, out in the country, or closer to the city? How close would you like to live to your job, the freeway, or public transportation? With knowledge of all of San Francisco’s unique neighborhoods, Bonnie can suggest some of the best locations to meet all of your needs.
3. Style Are you looking for a stylish loft apartment? Or is a craftsman-style home with a large porch more your style? Let us know which styles or details suit your personal preferences, and we’ll help you find similar homes.
4.Size Would you like a spacious bachelor pad? A cozy townhome? Consider whether you will be living alone or with a family. If you would like to entertain often, you may need a little more space. If you plan on getting a dog in the near future, you may need more space as well. Determine how many bedrooms and bathrooms will suit your needs at the time of purchase.
5. Features Would you like a big backyard? How about large windows overlooking the ocean? What about a pool, or a basement? Could you make due with street parking, or would you like a 3-car garage?
6. Price Factor in your income and any additional necessary expenses (car payment, insurance, gas, utilities, food, etc…) to determine a budget. How much disposable income would you like to have after paying your mortgage and all of your other bills? We don’t recommend exceeding your budget in order to save some money for future emergencies.
