So if you are planning to buy a new house or are about remodel an old one, we have a few suggestions for you. When your man comes home in the evening all thaka-hara, (or you yourself for that matter) a warm and welcoming home can be very relaxing and soothing. Heres a list of things that a perfect house should conform to. The list is neither exhaustive nor compulsory. Just try to look for a home that fulfils most of these expectations (as per your own requirements).

The perfect house must be affordable. If it makes you run over your budget, its not perfect for you. After all you will probably be paying off the loan for many many years. So why bite more than you can chew? Have a budget and stick to it.

It should be safe for everyone. If you have kids or old parents living with you, you will need to check about safety measures for them. If you have pets as members of your family, the house should be OK for them. Pay consideration to everyones needs when choosing your home.

The perfect house should offer a healthy environment for everyone. Location is very important. There should be no garbage disposal sites or slums near your home. And there should be plenty of windows, ventilators and balconies to allow fresh air inside. Having a garden or a park nearby is a great advantage.

The perfect house is supposed to be secure. It should be designed such that it can protect you, your family and your belongings from outside intrusion, burglary or other harm. A secure house minimizes harm from external threats such as pests, fire, flooding, terrorism, chemical attacks, etc.

The perfect house offers every possible comfort and convenience. Be it the bathroom or the kitchen, your home should be fitted with all modern amenities.

This dream home of yours should have enough natural light. If you have to switch on the lights in the daytime, youve got it all wrong. Natural sunlight is cheap, bright and invigorating. All your rooms should have access to it in abundance.

Look for a house that offers maximum storage space. Believe it or not, but we tend to accumulate a really big pile of stuff over the years. So dont we need to accommodate for space for the future too? Also watch out for any wasted spaces.

Your dream home or the prefect house should also be very comfortable and entertaining for all guests and visitors.

Last but not the least, the perfect house is such that it can be adjusted or remodeled to accommodate changing times and technology.

Now you know what to look for when you go on your next house-hunting trip. We hope that these tips will help you hunt for that perfect house which can become your dream home.
