Analyze home buying wants and needs
Dream Homes usually have a flaw or two. How do you figure out and evaluate all the choices home buyers face when buying a home. Take some time to make a list of all the attributes you must have in your new home. Once you’ve got a good idea of the things you’d like, you should prioritize the items on the list.
Work your way from absolutely non-negotiable items at the top of the list, down to things that you might be willing to add after purchase with little effort.
Be prepared to seriously evaluate your wants and to compromise if need be, because it’s unlikely you will find a home with all the items on your wish list.A trade off or two will allow you to make the savviest financial decisions when the time comes to purchase a home.
Once you have put together a list, share it with your Realtor. Realtors who work specific neighborhoods can help you analyze home buying wants and needs. You may be putting together a list for a castle when you only have a budget for a cottage. Realtors bring a sense of reality when we analyze home buying wants and needs.
If you analyze home buying wants and needs, you will be prepared to act quickly when that perfect home hits the market. This is huge in terms of actually getting the house you want versus ending up with a house you “settle for”.Call Sally English at 404-229-2995 and we can work on the list together!
