When you’re searching for a home, what’s most important?
Location, location, location.
It’s always a good idea to balance what you desire with what you can safely afford.
For us, price means a great deal, as we’re conscious of our budget, following Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.
But we also look to be closer to our church.
Lucky for us, we’re not tied to one particular zip, since our church has several partner churches, and not just in and around Atlanta. Not to mention, I work from home.
And with North Point ministries being versatile enough that we can even watch online from the comforts of our living room, which is great for the adults in the family, we still miss having our children in Waumba Land and Upstreet. So while we’re making do temporarily with online services, again, we want our kids in an actual brick and mortar church.
It really has helped that our church shares many of our values, despite being what I would label liberal. We truly desire and appreciate them coming alongside us in helping parent. And small groups that mean weekly are wonderful for me and the hubby, too.
Aside from price and our church then, we value good schools. Public education isn’t the same across state borders. In fact, it’s not even ideal from district to district. Therefore, with young hearts and minds to mold, we value education.
When you were looking for a home, or when you decide to start that endeavor, what will matter most to you?
Distance from your church, or work?
Or something else.
