What Type of Home Suits You Best?

Which type of home do you need? This is a question that a lot of people struggle with, especially when it comes to choosing the right home for them. Do you want a new build? An older home? A single story or double story house? A country cottage or an urban apartment? The options are endless, and it can be difficult to decide what’s best for you. Here’s a guide to the different types of homes available, to help you choose the one that’s right for you.

There are many reasons why you might decide to move home. You might be looking for more space, or you may want to be closer to family or friends. Perhaps you’re downsizing now your children have left home, or you’re upsizing to accommodate a growing family. It could be that you’re moving to a new area for work, or you simply fancy a change of scenery. Whatever your reasons for moving, it’s important to choose the right type of home for your needs. So what types of home suit different needs, lifestyles and personalities?

New Build Homes

If you’re looking for a brand new home, with all the latest mod cons, then a new build might be the right choice for you. New builds are becoming increasingly popular, as they offer a blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on. Many new build homes come with a ten-year warranty, so you can have peace of mind that your home is built to last.

A new build home might be right for you if you have a busy work life, and don’t want the hassle of having to do a lot of ongoing work and maintenance to your home. In general if you’re not a do-it-yourself (DIY) fan, a new build home will probably be perfect for you. If this is your first time buying a home, the security of having a warranty while you build up equity in the home and your general financial position might be an attractive proposition to you.

Older Homes

Older homes are full of character and charm, and often come at a lower price than new builds, because they often need more money to be invested in them on an ongoing basis. If you’re looking for a project, then an older home could be ideal, as there’s scope to create something new and add your own personal touch.

You might choose an older home if you’re looking for more space, as they often have larger gardens and more original features than new builds. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, then an older home could be perfect for you, as there’s always something that needs doing! If you love having a project to keep you busy, or are a budding interior designer, an older home might be a good choice.

Single Story

Many people find having single story homes more convenient that double story homes, because everything is on one level. This can be especially beneficial if you have young children or elderly relatives living with you, as there are no stairs to contend with. Larger single story homes also give a greater feeling of space, as the different parts of the home feel more spread out.

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance home, then a single story property might be the right choice for you. Wide and open, they’re often easier to clean and keep tidy than double story homes. If you want a home that is a little future-proof in case of mobility issues as you age, a single story home could be a good option.

Double Story

Double story homes often have more bedrooms than single story homes, so if you’re looking for a family home then this might be the right choice for you. They also tend to have more bathrooms, which can be handy if you have a large family or frequently have guests staying. If you have a relatively small plot of land, building a double story home means you will maximize the amount of floor space you can have.

You might choose a double story home if you’re looking for more privacy, as the bedrooms are often located on the top floor away from the main living areas. If you have young children, it also means that all the bedrooms are located closely together, which can make daily life easier to manage. Once you have a double story home, you can also consider a loft conversion, which will give you even more usable space.

City Homes

City homes are often smaller than homes in the countryside, but this can be offset by the fact that you’re likely to have more amenities on your doorstep. If you love being surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars, then a city home could be perfect for you. City homes also tend to have good public transport links, so if you don’t have a car or prefer not to use one, this could be a good option for you.

You might choose a city home if you’re looking for a cosmopolitan lifestyle, and if you love the hustle and bustle of city.

Country Home

Country homes are often larger than city homes, and they come with a lot of land. This can be great if you’re looking for a home with a large garden, or if you want to keep animals. Country homes often have good views, and there’s often more peace and quiet than you would find in a city.

You might choose a country home if you’re looking for a more rural lifestyle, if you love being surrounded by nature, and if you work from home or don’t mind commuting to the city for work.
