Whether it’s your first home or your last, if you have a family then you probably have specific ideas about what you want. To begin with, young families generally want a neighborhood that is safe with good schools in the area. Once you have found an area you like and schools that are good, it can feel a little overwhelming to find that perfect house in Grayhawk Real Estate.
Most families probably need a lot of storage space. When my family of five was looking for a home, we looked for a home with large closets and a three-car garage. Cabinets in the garage are a plus, but you can always add that later. It’s easy to forget all the “stuff” we have when we are raising a family: holiday decorations, camping gear, suitcases, sports equipment.
Are you a family that entertains a lot? If so, then you might want to consider a home with a great room. A great room is a kitchen and living area that are combined to make one “great” room. This not only is great for entertaining, but this affords you time with your family while cooking meals with space for everyone to be included.
If you are a family with teens, then a bonus room is a nice feature in Grayhawk Homes for Sale. Our house did not include a bonus room when we bought it, but we added one to our home when the kids got a little older. We have never regretted it. Our children and their friends have a space they can call their own and hang out. If it works for your family, a study area with a computer is a great way to keep the kids organized while also giving them a quiet place to do their homework.
A laundry room with an extra sink and cabinet space is a nice feature. I think a large laundry room is underrated when raising a family and if it is possible for you to have one, you should. A kitchen with a computer or workspace is a must have. This makes it nice for you to get some work done, check e-mails, etc. while still being part of the family.
Last, a nice outdoor space is really a must when raising children. Since we live in such a beautiful climate nine months out of the year, sport courts are very popular in Grayhawk Real Estate area in North Scottsdale. A swimming pool is a must, and grassy areas are great for children and animals to play on.
