Are you getting out of a two-bedroom apartment because it's too small? Then your new home should have at least three bedrooms, and probably a second bathroom. REALTORS® call these must-have features "needs" while features you’d like to have are called "wants." Your strategy should be to find a home within your price range that fulfils all or most of your "needs" and as many of your "wants" as possible.
