buying your first home - what you should know

Buying A Home Lacking The Number Of Bedrooms You Wanted

If you are going to be looking to buy a home and you have found one you love, but it is shy one bedroom, then it may still work for you. You can read this article for information on the things you need to consider in order to decide whether or not the home may still work for you when it is lacking one of the bedrooms you were originally hoping for.

How bad do you need the bedroom?

Did you really need the number of bedrooms, or were you just hoping to get a home that came with an extra guest room? If you just wanted a guest room then there are other ways you can go about putting a guest up in your home that don't require an extra bedroom year round. You can go with a murphy bed which is a bed that folds up into a cabinet when it's not in use and you can put it in one of the larger kid's rooms, in a den area or in another area where a guest may feel comfortable to sleep.

If you wanted the extra bedroom to make it a nursery then maybe you can consider keeping the baby in with you in your room instead. If the house that you have fallen in love with has a very large master bedroom then it may be possible for you to turn half of your own bedroom into a nursery instead of needing a completely separate one. Your baby won't really be needing its own bedroom for quite a while anyway, and this will also allow you to keep an eye on the baby without needing to get up during the night to check on them. You can look into an added bedroom in the future which will also add more to the worth of your home in the long run.

Is there another area that can be used as a bedroom?

If the house that you are thinking about buying is lacking a bedroom but it has an extra area that can be used as a bedroom instead of as its original intended purpose, then the house may work out just fine for you. Some examples of areas that may be able to be used as that other bedroom you need include finished basements, offices, separate dens, finished attics as long as they have easy access and sunrooms.

Now that you see that there are some ways to work around a rental home that you absolutely adore but that may be lacking a needed bedroom, you may be able to purchase it anyways knowing that you will still have plenty of room for everyone.
