4 Golden Rules to Finding a Home You’ll Love

February 27, 2024

1. Create a profile. Decide what kind of home you want to buy. Consider the type of building, size, number of bedrooms, property features, and other details. When you have a clear idea of what you’re looking for, you’re more likely to find it. You’ll also be less likely to waste time seeing listings that aren’t a good fit.

2. Target ideal neighborhoods. Where do you want to live? What areas are likely to be a good fit with your desired lifestyle? What sort of neighbors do you want? What area features, such as schools, do you need close by?

3. Pre-arrange any required financing. Will you need a mortgage? Make those arrangements in advance. That will give you peace-of-mind in knowing you’ll be able to buy the home you want. Also, a pre-arranged mortgage makes your offers stronger. Not sure who to call? I can help with that! I can connect you to a trusted mortgage professional.

4. Get on an alert list. Not all new listings are advertised or posted online right way. So, arrange to be immediately alerted to new listings that match your criteria. That way, you’ll be first in line. I can set you up to receive an email the moment a listing fitting your criteria is entered into the Multi-List service. Or, you can sign up via this website creating your own Property Organizer.

Following these tips will go a long way toward getting you into the home of your dreams.
