Sometimes buying a home is like playing the board game “Clue”. You look at a lot of homes on the Internet searching and searching for the perfect home. You wander from home to home or room to room. Is there a library or office? Is there a ballroom or multimedia room? How about a kitchen with granite countertops or a study? Watch out for that secret passageway or hidden repairs that need fixed.
Many times it’s a process of elimination. Cross off those homes that don’t meet your needs and narrow down the search for the “one”. Is it the right neighborhood? How close is shopping and schools? Does it have a basement? What are homes selling for in the area? Sometimes you can find two out of three of your must have requirements but not the third.
You need to have an action plan or strategy of how to find the perfect home that meets your needs but buying real estate is not a game. Its time to find help from a professional.
That’s why its so important to find an experienced REALTOR® who will represent your best interests and negotiate on your behalf. This saves you both time and money. Our goal is to have a win-win situation for everyone involved.
