If you’re in the market for a home in the Santa Clarita Valley, Laura Smith of Laura Smith Homes can show you plenty of options, from modest, two-bedroom models to much grander homes with lots of amenities.

Buying a home is by far the biggest investment most of us ever make, and when you are in the market for a home there are some important things you need to keep in mind. While the number of rooms, condition of the kitchen and size of the yard are important, there are other things to consider before you make an offer.

The three most important things to think about when buying are home are location, location, location. You can live with almost any imperfection in a home if you love the neighborhood and your neighbors. Other factors to consider include these: If the home is on a hill does it have a view, a walkout basement, or lots of stairs to climb? Do neighbors’ windows look directly into the home?

And be sure the neighborhood, and not just the house, meets your expectations. They say that you should own the smallest home in the nicest neighborhood that you can afford. You’ll have a great view! Drive around on week days and weekends, during the day and in the evening. Are homes in the neighborhood consistent in size and features? Do the neighbors keep the yards clean and tidy or are there old cars and trash around?

And size matters. You may be thinking about buying your dream home. But is your dream home impractical? Do you really need four bedrooms and four baths when you live alone? A large home can give you the extra space you’ve always wanted for a home office or crafts or art projects. But you’ll pay higher heating bills and have higher taxes.

So whether you’re looking for something small and intimate or something large with four to five bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms with a swimming pool, Laura can offer some choices for you to check out. Take a look at our website laurasmithhomes.com to see some of the featured properties we can show you. They are in Valencia, Castaic and Canyon Country. Or give us a call at 661-755-6420.
