Homes for sale in The Woodlands, Texas

Finding a home for sale in The Woodlands, Texas could take some time. Plan on spending at least 6 weeks searching. It could take longer, but hopefully you can find the right home very fast.

What’s the plan?

What’s the most you’re willing to pay?
Location – Where do you want to live?
How many bedrooms and bathrooms?
How many square feet do you need?
How big of a yard do you need?
Do you want a 1 story or 2 story home?
Do you want a pool?

Start out determining the maximum price you are willing to pay for a home.  Of course, this needs to be something you can afford, but keep in mind, the price you pay will determine the neighbors that live around you.

Then think about where you want to live.  The first consideration is probably your place of employment.  How long of a commute do you want to make everyday?  Once you have determined your commute time, then think about what kind of environment will make you feel the most at home.  Do you want to live in the country? Suburbs? City?  What are the best places to live?

The next consideration will likely be determined by the size of your family.  How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need?  If you can live with less of either, the price you pay for a home will also be less.

Do you know how many square feet you have where you currently live?  Is this enough space for you?  Try to determine how many square feet you will need.

The size of your yard could be determined by – Do you have dogs that like to be outdoors?  Do you want a pool? Do you want to have a yard for your kids to play?  Generally, you will need at least 10,000 square feet to have a pool in your backyard.  Use this as a basis to determine how large of a yard you will need.

Stairs are not an option for some people.  Do you mind going up and down stairs?  Think about this when you determine if you would prefer a 1 story or 2 story home.

Lastly, do you want or need a pool.  Homes with pools will generally cost a little more.  Then there is the maintenance of the pool to consider.  Some people have homes with pools and they never get used.  Think about this when you determine your need for  a pool.

This process is like putting together the pieces of a large puzzle. Sifting through all of the homes for sale can sometimes be a painful process.  I can guide you through this process and help you locate the perfect home for you.  Please let me know how I can help you.
