Considering a brand new home on a tiny postage-stamp-sized lot, maybe even just a patio with a very small yard in a sea of similar homes? Or maybe a similar flipped older home in a mediocre neighborhood (schools, crime, etc) because the price is right?

Really, think about these things and how they may affect you, your neighbors, and the future of that neighborhood.

It may look and smell new & shiny now, but what about the future? It's sometimes hard to do but think long-term for your happiness and the future investment value of your MOST important investment.
