My husband and I will be purchasing a home in October 2015. We have been doing a lot of research and making plans about what areas we want to live in.
My non negotiables are a backyard with at least enough space for me to cultivate a small vegetable garden. That will be easy to find. I also want more than one bathroom and the second bathroom can be a powder room.
My husband's only non negotiable is a commute more than 30 minutes away from work. We are moving partly because we would like to cut his commute in half so his one non negotiable makes complete sense. We agree not to buy a home which is smaller than our apartment; we currently live in two bedroom which is approximately 1100 square feet. Again, we won't have any trouble finding a home which is more than 1100 square ft.
What are your non negotiables? Do you think you will be able to find a home that fits your needs?
