First thing you may wish to do is really think about the type of home you want and why. Is it going to remain a rental home, or are you going to gather the funds needed to buy yourself a home? Would you rather buy an existing house or are you going to build one from scratch? How many bedrooms will it have? Make sure when you answer that question you are thinking not only about your current family situation but your family’s future growth and development. Also think about your finances. Is a dream house what you can afford now or are you prepared to start with an affordable solution which you can later upgrade?
