5. Consider your lifestyle
Determining if you want a double-storey, single-storey or split-level home will also largely depend on your lifestyle (and, the stage of life you’re currently at).
Are you planning on having kids who will need room to grow? If you’ve got young kids, a single-storey home may be safer. If your kids are older, perhaps a double-storey home or split-level home is more appropriate, so you and they can have some privacy.
On the other hand, if you’ve got somebody more senior staying in your home with limited mobility, perhaps you’d like a single-storey home to make it easier for them to get around.
If you are middle-aged or retired consider whether this is the home you plan to retire in?
If so it will need to be senior suitable.
