There are a few additional variables that you may wish to think about. Obviously the commute vs the size of the property is a major factor for you. Also consider the neighborhoods. Are the homes being well maintained or is there an unkempt look? Is the commute 20 minutes at the time you go to work or on Saturday afternoon without much traffic? Are the schools best for your children? Also be advised that each purchase plan needs to have an exit strategy. There is always the chance that a life changing event occurs - children, job transfer, etc. -that will make you need to move again. Which home gives you the best opportunity to enjoy the quality of life that you expect and also allows you to move forward in the future if necessary. These are questions that help you build a purchase plan and need to be discussed with your Realtor. If you don't have a Realtor, get one. There are 3 listed on this page to contact.
