Buying a home is a big life decision. If you recently went through the process or plan to do so in the near future, which factors are most important to you?

Obviously, affordability would be a big one. You want to have a space to call your own, but at the same time you want enough money left over to allow you to shop for necessities like food and gas, pay your bills and maybe treat the family to a nice meal every now and then. Finding that home is no easy task, especially when Realtor.com says the current median listing home in September 2023 in Boise is $599,900 and climbing.
