So you have narrowed your search down to a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom gated pool community, focused the price range to where you feel comfortable and the search results give you......150 homes.Â Instantly you are overwhelmed and start to sort through the ones you think might fit.Â Let me give you some advice, don't!Â By the time you get to the 20th house you have forgotten what you liked about house #1.Â
Try thisÂ out first, pick a location, whether its because of the schools, distance to work or family, this is the most important aspect of your search.Â One of the hardest things to do is find a home with no focus on location, yes location, pick the area you desire most, then have 2 back up areas.Â When I say location I mean subdivision or neighborhood, get picky, this is your dream home pick it out that way.Â Â
Once you find this location then really lookÂ at the homes that fall into yourÂ criteria, you still may have a lot of homes to choose from, however now you can get creative on the details.Â If you want hardwood floors and a fenced in yard, find that home.
One of the hardest things to overcome when deciding on a home is havingÂ some many potentials.Â How can you sleep at night if you have 15 potential homes you want to buy.Â Narrow that search down, your agent will be able to help you do this and ultimately you will find your home quicker.Â
As the saying goes.....LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!
