There are a lot of things to consider as you are selecting your new home. Some of them are more heavily considered than others. There are even a few factors some people do not really think about. For example, how much thought do you put into the lot size of the home you are purchasing?

If you have plans of keeping the home forever, you may end up expanding and adding to it one day. This is going to be hard to do if the lot size is completely consumed by the house.

How Close do You Really Want Your Neighbors to be?

You also have to think about how neighborly you really are. Do you want your neighbors to be able to see inside of your house from their own window? Some people do not mind being right next door, but it is not for everyone. If you want some space between your house and the houses nearby. You are going to need a bigger lot size.

The Lot Size Impacts the Price

Naturally, the price of the house you are buying is impacted by how much land you are buying along with it. You are not going to buy a big house with a lot of land for a steal. You may, however, be able to find an affordable small house with a lot of land.

People sell these houses as a dream house or a construction house. It is a house you buy with the intention of adding to it. You buy the house for cheaper because of its small size and then you add to it when you have the money and the time.

As you are making your final choices when it comes to lot size ask yourself how much outdoor space you really need and how much time your family spends outside?
