Buying a house is a life-changing decision. As such, you should perform extensive home evaluations before you make your final purchase decision.

There are many questions to consider as you review houses, and these questions include:

1. Does a home match my expectations?

Entering the housing market with homebuying criteria usually is a good idea. If you know what you want to find in your dream house, you can tailor your home search accordingly. As a result, you can speed up the homebuying journey.

When it comes to establishing homebuying criteria, it helps to consider your short- and long-term goals. For example, if you want a house that is close to your current office in the city, you can search for residences in towns and cities near your workplace. Or, if you are willing to upgrade a house on your own, you may want to focus on "fixer-upper" properties.

2. Can I afford a house?

Home prices vary based on many factors. Fortunately, if you create a homebuying budget, you can narrow your house search and review properties that fall within your price range.

Oftentimes, it helps to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Banks and credit unions are happy to provide you with a wide assortment of mortgage options. Once you assess the different types of mortgages, you can choose one that will ensure you can acquire your dream home in no time at all.

3. Will a home require in-depth repairs in the near future?

How a home looks today may not match how this residence looks in the years to come. As you evaluate residences, it may be beneficial to consider potential repairs.

For instance, if a house likely will require a new roof in the next few years, you may need to budget for this expense. Conversely, if a home is brand new or recently has been upgraded, you may be able to avoid costly, time-consuming repairs in the foreseeable future.

If you want to streamline your home search, you can hire a real estate agent too. In fact, if you employ a real estate agent, you can receive comprehensive support throughout the homebuying journey.

A real estate agent has a simple goal: to help you find a great house at a budget-friendly price. To accomplish this goal, a real estate agent will learn about you and your homebuying criteria and craft a personalized homebuying strategy. Plus, a real estate agent will set up home showings, offer expert homebuying recommendations and help you submit an offer to purchase your dream residence. And if you have homebuying concerns or questions, a real estate agent is available to respond to them at your convenience.

Lastly, be careful as you evaluate available homes in your preferred cities and towns. Keep in mind that no house is perfect, and any residence you buy may increase or decrease in value over time. And if you find a home that you want to buy, prepare a competitive offer, and you can boost the likelihood of receiving an instant "Yes" from a property seller.

Home improvement has reached new technological heights with the introduction of the Numi 2.0 intelligent toilet from Kohler. The Consumer Electronics Show recently held in Las Vegas, Nevada, saw the debut of the trapezoidal-shaped unit under the control of Amazon Alexa. When offered such a staggering variety of personalization choices, some folks might never leave the bathroom.

Mood setting

Not content to merely flush away waste, the Numi 2.0 connects via Bluetooth® to sync your favorite music into your early morning experience. If relaxing on the throne is your ideal, Numi 2.0's got your err … backside. On the other hand, if you prefer productivity during your morning go, the embedded Alexa will check traffic, weather, stock prices, or breaking news for you. Ask Alexa to access your personalized playlists to make your experience truly personal.

Set your environment with Numi 2.0’s mood lighting too. Choose from a solid glow surrounding the base and back panel to dynamic light changes progressing from color to color. And don’t forget temperature control. The Numi 2.0’s heated seat also responds to Alexa so no more shivering on cold winter mornings, while the lid raises and closes on your command.

Best of all, the Kohler app, called KOHLER Konnect®, lets you personalize your experience and preset it for you and other users so that upon your return, your voice brings you (or your family member's) preferences back to life. Download your KOHLER Konnect® app from the App Store or get it on Google Play.

Easy-peasy cleaning

Not just for the going functions, the Numi 2.0 changes the cleaning experience as well. With warm-water cleansing and adjustable water pressure, spray, and temperature options, the toilet’s self-cleaning wand, precision air dryer, and deodorizing filter practically do all the work for you.

The little extras

  • Eco-friendly dual-flush gives you a choice of either 0.6 gallons or 1.28 gallons per each flush.
  • Motion-activated and touch-free opening and closing of both the lid and the seat provide hands-free operation.
  • Chair-height seating offers ease of sitting and standing.
  • Another economy option is the power saving option that detects usage and changes the settings of the heated seat to save you energy.
  • Support in emergency power outages with up to 100 flushes.
  • Best of all, it fits into standard plumbing with only the addition of power access.

If you want to add some luxury to your lifestyle, this $7,000 (for white) or $8,000 (for black) toilet suits your needs. In high-end housing, a fantastic specialty product like this one can be a difference-maker. Talk to your luxury real estate professional about how it can increase your home's value.
