“Hi Veronica, I am considering buying a home. What are the major things I should look out for regarding the placement of the home, street and interior? Thanks.”

The Main Things to Look For
The Exterior: Look at not just the outside of the house but the surrounding neighborhood. How does the road flow? Are you in a cul-de-sac? What do you see across the street? Are there any water features, cell towers, places of high activity near by?
The Interior: The front door, bedroom, family room, kitchen and office... are these areas spacious and clear?
Is there a Fire place? Avoid them in the northwest.
What is the history of the house? If there was a divorce, bankruptcy or death in the house, contact a qualified consultant

4 Best Outdoor features
When a house sits on a road that is straight and not too busy or curves towards you.
The front of the house has a good size garden area for energy collection.
There is no tree, lamp post or large building blocking your front door.
Where a pond, lake or pool is located is important, even if it is not in your backyard or directly across from you. Water features are best in the North, East, Southeast and Southwest
The interior of the house can be changed. This is why interior features are not as important as outdoor features.
4 Best Indoor features
Hallways are wide and lit because they keep energy flowing.
There is a spacious foyer in the entrance of the home for energy to collect.
The stove sits against the wall.
There are at least 2 solid walls in the bedroom to locate the head of the bed.
Enjoy shopping for homes, it is a daunting process. However when chosen carefully, your home will become your safe place and sanctuary and support your goals.
