What do you think about when you want to buy or rent a home? This article shows the difference (as well as the similarities!) between the considerations that a designer and a seasoned homeowner have when viewing and selecting homes for purchase. These considerations include the reason for searching for a home in the first place, what the house will be used for, what qualities you are looking for in a house, and how or why to upgrade the performance of the house you choose. These considerations serve as insights on the thought process of potential homebuyers for readers starting out in construction and allied fields.
