Here are our top tips to help you choose new homes for sale that meet your needs at different stages of your life.
You’re young, energetic, and have your whole life ahead of you. Finances may be tight, with your career still gaining traction. Perhaps you have recently married, or decided to move in with your partner. With the average age that Australian women begin having kids rising to 30 in recent years, you may be in the early stages of raising a family. How many kids do you want to have? This will determine how many bedrooms you need. Perhaps you’ll need a games room, or a kitchen that looks over an outdoor area. Location is important too, with a quiet street close to good schools and shops high on the agenda for this age group. Additionally, look for money saving home features such as solar panels and gas hot water systems.
As you reach middle age, life gains momentum and your home needs change. More members are added to the family (and others grow bigger), changing your focus to space and privacy. Look for floorplans with large footprints (~230sqm is the Perth average). You may also want to consider layouts that isolate secondary bedrooms at one end (or level) of the house around their own bathroom and living area - home harmony is king with growing families!
You’ve laid the groundwork – time to enjoy the freedom that comes with older, more independent children. Less parent-teacher nights, sports carnivals and school holidays means more me-time again! This age group is also likely to enjoy a period of financial freedom, making it the ideal time to indulge in some features you never prioritised before. Outdoor kitchens, swimming pools and games rooms are all on the cards, while that two storey home with the upstairs master retreat has never looked so attractive! However, you should consider your long term plans. If you plan to live in this house through retirement, a second storey might not be practical for your mobility. Choose new homes for sale with the master suite downstairs, allowing you to stay put as your circumstances evolve.
