Your real estate agent has the power to grant many of your wishes for your Dream Home! What’s on your list?
Price: How much can you afford? You must see a Mortgage Professional and get pre-approved so your agent can focus on homes in your price range. When calculating affordability it’s not just about price, real estate taxes are incorporated into the formula as well.
Location: “Location, Location, Location”… as the saying goes. This is one of the most important factors when it comes to the saleability and pricing of a home, and it’s a good place to start when making your wish list.
Neighborhood: If you are looking for a family home, then you need to research the local schools. Is there a particular school district you want to be in, or perhaps to stay in? Do you want a neighborhood within walking distance to shopping and restaurants?
Home Styles: Do you prefer a single family home, condo, co-op, multi family home? One or two stories?
Home Features: What do you desire most? Open floor plan? Eat-in-kitchen, formal dining room, master bathroom, porch, deck, garage, basement or a pool?
Condition: Do you want a home that has updated kitchens and/or bathrooms? Are you willing to purchase a fixer-upper? Can you do some work yourself or do you need to hire professionals to assist, at what cost?
Must Haves vs. Nice to Haves: Knowing your must-haves vs. nice-to-haves is a key element to house shopping. As you begin to preview houses, you will be able to determine what you must have and what would be nice to have. You will then be able to make some compromises on your list. Separating your must-haves from your nice-to-haves lets you decide where you can compromise to meet your budget and find your Dream Home.
We have a network of professionals waiting to answer your questions. From health & wellness, beauty, fitness & fashion, business & finance to home design, pets, relationships, dating, dining inspiration & more! We want to hear from you!
