Finding Your Dream Home Should Be Fun. Make a List and Check It Twice

It's no secret that buying a home is one of the biggest decisions in life. That doesn't mean it has to be the most stressful, and you certainly don't have to settle. While it's important to have an experienced team behind you, I believe that knowing exactly what you want can also help the process. Finding your dream home should be fun!

 

 

MAKE A LIST

The easiest way to do this is simply by listing out what you want in your new home and prioritizing those desires. So, begin with the features of a new home that you just can't live without. Then list out nine more features and rank each from most important to least important. Here are examples of what your list could include:

 â€¢  Location/Neighborhood
 â€¢  School District
 â€¢  # Bedrooms
 â€¢  # Bathrooms
 â€¢  Screened-In Porch
 â€¢  Lot size
 â€¢  Appliances
 â€¢  Countertops
 â€¢  Bike/Walk Friendly
 â€¢  Distance from _______
 â€¢  Walk-In Closet
 â€¢  Office
 â€¢  Master Bedroom on First Floor
 â€¢  Open Floor Plan
 â€¢  Large Kitchen with Double Oven
 â€¢  Tall Ceilings

CHECK IT TWICE

Now that you have your prioritized list, you can use it to rate each house that you view. Tally up how many check marks each house has and decide what items you can sacrifice to get the ones you truly want.

Don't stress; there's a house out there just for you. So make your list, check it twice, and you'll see that finding your dream home is fun!
