How to Find the Right Home
How to Find the Right Home

If you're in the market for a new home, deciding which one to purchase can be extremely stressful, whether you were a previous homeowner or are purchasing a home for the first time. There are multiple things that you would have to consider before you make your final decision Having a good understanding of how to approach it can help you to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

Old or Modern?

Some people have a preference for more of an old-fashioned home, one that has been built many years ago. Others prefer a home that is completely modern, both in its appearance and architecture, as well as with its amenities.

However, many home buyers, especially ones that are buying a home for the first time, don't consider how much remodeling and upgrading an old home will need in terms of the cost and time. Electrical wiring may have to be fixed, walls may have to be repaired, and some lighting fixtures have to be replaced, all of which is going to cost a considerable amount of money.

Modern homes, in contrast, have all been built based on updated building code regulations, have newer features, and make installing new technology within it, such as a home security system or a home control feature, much easier.

If you're set on buying an older home, this is not necessarily a bad thing. But be sure to have it inspected before you do so.

Matching Your Personal Tastes

Purchasing a home is obviously a major life decision so don't commit to one if you're not completely sure that it's what you want. Do you need a large home with multiple bedrooms and a big garage? Or do you think that a smaller house will suit you better? Are you interested in a Victorian style house or do you want one that is more modern in design? Also consider where it is located. Do you prefer being in a quiet neighborhood in a suburban dwelling? Or do you prefer being in the woods?

You don't have to purchase your dream home, but just keep some of your goals in mind and how long you think you'll be staying there. If you're purchasing a home that you think you're going to settle into for years and years, make sure that it's what you want in a home.

Location is Everything

Do you have a car? Are you single or do you have a family? Things like that have to be considered in terms of the physical location of your home. If you don't own a car, then obviously you want to chose a home that is in a location with easily accessible public transportation. If you have children, you should chose a home that is in a school district that is known for providing good education. If you're someone who loves to walk to places, rather than drive, you shouldn't chose a home in the suburbs.

You may be able to purchase a bigger home in the suburbs, but purchasing a smaller one that's in walkable distance to coffeeshops or public transportation may be better for you, depending on your lifestyle needs, even if it means paying “more for less.” Remember, if you live in an area where you can take public transportation everywhere, you may not have a need for a car at the moment, which can also save you some money.

All of these factors should be considered when you're trying to the find the right home!

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
