When buyers find a home they like, its easy to see. Their face light up. Clearly they have that thrill and excitement coursing through their veins. Yes, looking for a home is much like looking for a romantic relationship. Realtors are like that familiar aunt, helping you to look beyond the romance. Here are just a few tips;
1. Don’t let your emotions take over.Check if this house fits your needs. Make sure it passes your top 3 priorities, such as school district for your kids or how far the house is from your work.
2. Savvy buyers need to see the long-term value in a home even when they are in love. Look beyond the granite and sparkling floors. Don’t ignore major red flags just because a home seems like love at first sight.
3. Compromise is key in making a great home purchase. It’s rare when a buyer finds everything on their wish list at the price point they want. Ugly cabinets and floors can be fixed. Don’t pass the house over just because the walls are pink.
