You also want to keep in mind the types of restaurants and stores you frequent so you will be in close proximity to these places. If you have to commute to your job, you want to be close to freeways and streets to accommodate easy access to get to work. Also, if you use Metro subway lines or buses, you want to be sure they are within a close distance as well.
Number of bedrooms and bathrooms

Do you want an Alarm System Installed in your home
Determine whether or not you would like to have an alarm system installed in your home. This must be determined before you construct your home so the contractor can properly wire your home to accommodate the system.
