If you're an auto enthusiast, home buying is incredibly important to the future of your hobby.

This is a big expenditure and one you will likely be stuck with so choosing right the first time may be your one shot.

Outside of money, one of the most critical considerations is space.

There's no point to sugar coating this: if you choose a property that lacks the necessary space your hobby is done.

You need to choose a property with enough space that will allow you to expand your hobby to a level that makes your goals achievable.

In order to know what qualifies as enough space, you have to know precisely what it is you want to do and how to go about achieving it.

It's also a good idea to get more space than you think you will need because you can't just add space when you find out that what you want to do can't be done with the property you have.

How much space that is will depend on many factors which include — but aren't limited to — what you want to do, the regulations on the property you are buying, your neighbors, and how much money you have to invest in the types of property improvements you're going to need.

Depending upon your level of involvement in your hobby, being an auto enthusiast can mean a great deal of planning. Making certain mistakes early on can scuttle your dreams before you even start and ruin your chances for achieving the vision of your hobby permanently.

The real trick to succeeding is to learn — a lot. This is a technical, complicated hobby, and that means a great deal of research and education. Rule of thumb judgments and asking your buddies for their opinions isn't going to be good enough. You need real expertise and nothing else is going to take its place.
