What Do You HAVE To Have In Your New Home?

There are many beautiful homes out there for a potential home buyer (although inventory is down, as I’ve discussed in previous posts). But it can be like that crazy ex-girlfriend 76794-20140314who keeps turning a guy’s head even when83305-20140314 he knows she’s just shy of actually being declared legally insane…a luxurious master bathroom and hardwood floors can quickly distract buyers into thinking that a particular home might work for them, even if it’s missing that extra bedroom for the new baby!
That’s why I encourage buyers to come up with a list of must-haves and to stick with them. Do you have to have a pool (I definitely do in my next home!), a certain school district, a certain neighborhood, a certain drive-time to work? Whatever your must-have list has on it, stick with it and DON’T EVEN LOOK at homes that don’t meet those needs!
If, after looking for a while and realizing that what you thought was a must-have is really just a “maybe-want”, cross it off your list and widen your search. And don’t forget to tell your realtor that you’ve adjusted your list a bit – it helps us help you when we all have the same must-have and maybe-want lists!  Click here for a great Must-Have & Maybe-Want List Template that will help you create your personalized list for your home search.  Don’t know what you want, need help deciding what you want, know what you want and ready to consider buying? Give me a call, I’m always ready to help.
