Where we chose to live is a key life decision. It says a lot about our own priorities and goals. It is an extremely personal choice influenced by considerations like:
It is also important to consider ahead of time what items are deal-breakers and what compromises you might be willing to make to achieve your priorities.
Practical considerations like under- or over-buying space in the house and lot, amenities and features of the house and community, and maintenance and upkeep need to be included in your explorations too.
As your real estate agent, I will work with you to determine what is important to you and help you establish priorities. Often just discussing this with clients causes them to think about things in new ways. It is then my job to find properties that best suit your needs.
It is also my job to help remind you of your priorities as we review properties while keeping the “shiny objects” in perspective! Buyers need to be aware of the influence of short-term emotions versus long-term reality, but it is okay to adjust your priorities and our search as we go.
Value in a house is more than just monetary. It’s those other things that make it your home.
Together we can take from where? to there!
