Usually, when purchasing a home, access to cash is an integral factor in setting your budget. Blue Onyx Realty eases the stress for first time home buyers by offering impressive financing purchase options.

Outdoor Space

As a young couple, the chances are high you'll be expecting a newborn soon. You'll eventually want a house with a yard for the kids and pets to play around safely. How about sufficient space for building a deck or patio for your summer barbecues?


Consider your family lifestyle before you invest in your home. For example, an open kitchen is ideal if you prefer to keep an eye on your kids as you cook. Also, you may opt for a house with enough room for exercise equipment and entertainment amenities.

Neighborhood Amenities

One mistake people make when looking for family homes for sale is to settle on the first listing without considering the amenities in the neighborhood. Be sure to tour the entire area checking amenities like sidewalks for biking, tennis courts, parks, swimming pools, shops, schools, gym and more.

Why Couples & Young Families Choose Buying Over Renting

If you're committed to living in the single-family home for over 5 years, buying makes more sense. That makes it important to factor whether you work a job that requires you to relocate soon.

For the last couple of years, homes have continued to appreciate in value, not to mention rising inflation that has also increased rental costs. Owning a home means no increasing monthly rent. Plus, you can invest the homeowners' savings into your IRA, savings account, or other investment vehicle. Besides, as a homeowner, you have the freedom to customize your dwellings to suit your lifestyle. Additionally, there's no risk of getting forced out by a landlord who decides to sell the home you rent.
