How to Choose the “Right” Property

chooseahomeChoosing your next home is an important decision that does not need to be taken lightly.  Follow these steps to get you headed in the right direction!

  1. Make a check list of items you find important in a home.  Dig deeper than the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms-do you need a large dining room for hosting family events, a big backyard for your four-legged family members, a mudroom, an office?  The list could go on and you might not find exactly what you are looking for.  The goal is to find the one that checks off the most on your list.
  2. Don’t do it alone.  Find a professional in the industry that has the knowledge and technology to help you find your perfect property.  Check out my previous blogs to assist you in this area.  Choosing a REALTOR®  Are You Settling For Less?
  3. Find easy access to homes.  If you are driving by and see a home you think you would enjoy but cannot stop, be prepared!  There are apps out there for you to download to your phone for quick accessibility to homes.  The NextHome Mobile Connect app will actually connect with your location, so all you have to do is open the app and it will pull up all homes on the market and their information.  Click here for more info.
  4. Keep your goal in mind.  It’s easy to get swept off of your feet at first entry of the home, but remember your list and stay on track!
