#1 - How much can you really afford? Before you start looking you at South Windsor Homes for Sale you should have a price in mind that is not flexible and cannot be increased. It is tempting to take a look at South Windsor homes that are more expensive than your budget, but if you fall in love with one of them you may end up buying it and later regretting it. You want to be house happy, not house poor.  This maximum price will come from talking about what you can afford and what you feel comfortable paying each month for your house. 

#2 - Do you want a home that is in perfect condition or do you mind putting some more work into it after the purchase? You may be able to find a South Windsor Homes For Sale that need a small amount of work and be able to get it at a decent price because of that. Some people want a home that is perfect and requires no repairs at the time of purchase, while other people want to roll up their sleeves and do their own work. This is a decision you should make before you start looking at South Windsor Homes For Sale, because it will narrow down the search for a home significantly.  In the end it may be a financial decision, you may need the lower month payment just to afford the home you want, or you may say a certain increase for a perfect home is worth the cost and time of doing so after you purchase the home.

#3 - Although it may seem unimportant at first or even silly, buying a house with two floors or more will mean a lot of stair climbing. Some people really don't mind the stairs, while others prefer all the rooms to be situated on one floor. If you are buying this South Windsor home as a potential place of retirement in the near or distant future, you may want to consider getting a bungalow or ranch style home. Some people really don't mind the stairs, while others prefer all the rooms to be situated on one floor.  Think about the life events that could happen for you while you own the home.  Make sure it works for you today, but also for you "tomorrow" when looking at South Windsor Homes For Sale.
