Buying a home can send you on a roller coaster of emotions. These tips for finding your perfect home can help ease the madness of the process…
- What does your “perfect home” look like? You can use a checklist like this one to help you get started…
- Make sure you are pre-approved before you start shopping to keep from looking too far above your price range.
- Watch out for the “bigger is better” attitude. Remember that bigger means more to take care of, heat/cool, and more to clean. Figure out the size that best fits your family leaving a little bit of room to grow.
- Keep in mind that you can always remodel. Anything from painting to tearing down a not needed wall are all things that you can tackle once you own the home. Most homes are not perfect in the beginning. You have to add your personality to the house to make it your home. So keep an open mind about what the house could be once you add your touch.
- Location! Location! Location! Check the distance to work, school, church, or other places you may drive often. Also, you will want to survey the area. Drive around and check out the surroundings to make sure you feel comfortable living there. You may even want to do this at various times to check activity throughout the day.
