Article by Hilary Bowman

Here are some essentials you need to consider when purchasing a country house so you can really enjoy your time off at your new home out of the city.

Among the many things you have to consider when purchasing a country house there are three essential topics that you should address first: the location of the property and the means of transportation, the purchase price you are willing to accept and the means of financing the purchase and last but no means least, the improvements you are willing to make to the property considered in terms of time and money.

Location of The Property And The Means Of Transportation

The property needs to be located away from the city but not so far away that you can lose the whole morning traveling to reach your country house and the whole afternoon getting back. Ideally, getting to your country house from the city and traveling back shouldn't take you more than four or five hours.

This is due to the fact that any emergency situation can rise and you need to get back to the city or vice versa and also because weekends are not that long and you could otherwise lose a whole day.

As regards to the means of transportation, alternative means should be available. Make sure there are also buses or trains nearby that can transport you to the city because cars can break down, or get stuck especially when out of the city. Moreover, when the whole family goes to the country house, there is often the need of a member to return while the others wish to remain in the property a bit longer and unless all of the members have a vehicle (which is highly unlikely) the availability of other means of transportation is essential.

Purchase Price and Means For Financing

Decide a range of prices that you are comfortable with prior to start looking for properties. This is essential because you don't want to waste your time visiting properties out of your reach or places that don't meet your needs. In order to decide a figure you need to consider how much money you have saved and how much money you can obtain through financial sources. That way, if the price of a property you like exceeds by certain amount your budget, you will know how much you can extend by financing.

Home Improvements And Its costs

Almost every country house needs improvements when purchased. You need also budget how much you are willing to spend on improving the property and how much time will it take. As regards to financing you can always resort to a home improvement loan so you take advantage of the equity on the property but the time is an important variable because you are purchasing the property to use it. Thus, give a good thought to this issue prior to purchasing.
