Looking for a new home presents many challenges for our home buyers and requires thought, time and even patience. It is important for you to know before you begin to look at homes, what the things are that truly matter most to you.
Do yourself a favor and make a checklist of the things that have a high priority, so your time will be used wisely, in looking at homes that meet and fit your needs.
Everyone has their MUST HAVES. These will be the things that are true deal breakers for you…for example, if you don’t have at least 3 bedrooms this home is not for you, if you do not have a main floor bathroom…this home is not for you or maybe the home is outside of the price range you prefer to stay within. Make your decision on the MUST HAVES for your new home and stick to them as much as possible.
Now make a list of WANTS. These are the things that you would really like to have but don’t absolutely need. These could be such things as a main level laundry, possibly a fireplace in the living room or even a large yard. These are the things that you may appreciate, but could give up, if you happen to find a home that fills all the requirements of your MUST HAVE list.
Once you’ve put together your list please be sure to share this with your Realtor ® this will greatly assist them in preparing a list of homes for you to view that meet your selected criteria.
Happy home hunting!
