How to Find the Perfect Jupiter Home for You

The home buying process is very involved and can often seem overwhelming but in the end – that dream house (or condo) will be yours to call home!


How do you know you’ve picked the right home?

There’s a lot of work that goes into doing your home buying research and prep. You may start to get cold feet because there’s still so much to do. You may also feel a bit of “buyer’s remorse” or feel like there are better options once you’re “locked in” to a particular piece of property.

How do you find the “best Jupiter home” for your needs?

The Right Price

It’s always good practice to live within your means.

This goes for setting a home buying budget.

You want to find the perfect balance of living space with pricing that you can afford. After all, what good is owning a home if you never have any leftover to enjoy the many things to do around the area that made it attractive in the first place!

A good way to figure out how much home you can afford is by doing this exercise:

  • Write down every little detail about your household income, debts, loans, and the like
  • Figure out your credit score and the home loan you may be eligible for
  • Figure you’ll want to save and put at least 10 – 20% into the down payment
  • Try not to allow the mortgage to be more than 25 – 30% of your take-home pay
  • Factor in things like proximity to work, schools, and other everyday needs

You’re more than welcome to talk with a Jupiter real estate agent about your needs, too. Or, try using a mortgage calculator to get an estimate for your budget needs.

In all, this exercise will help you find a home that you won’t later regret because you’re not burdened by its payments.

The Right Size

In your mind – you tend to think about the big, fancy estates as you see in the movies. Or, you think about how you’ll have fancy get-togethers and parties with friends and family.

The reality?

A lot of your home life is busy with upkeep.

The bigger the home – the more you have to take care of. The more you have to take care of – the less time you get to enjoy doing the things you love!

Think about things like:

  • Ways you’d like to spend your afternoons
  • How big you’d like to see your family grow
  • If you’d like to have a home office or study
  • How often you’ll actually be at home
