I would also check online to see if any registered sex offenders live near any homes you are considering. I marked several off my list because there was a sex offender on the same street.

Also consider the commute to work. When I lived in an apt, my commute was 4 miles. It was hell on earth - I had to drive the most congested road in town everyday.

My house is 16 miles from work, but the commute is very easy! There is an interstate and 4 lane highway that run parallel to each other so the traffic is split up between the two roads.

When you actually buy a house, do was much painting, renovating etc as you can before you move in. So much easier to paint without furniture in the house.

Good luck.
