Finding Your Next Home--4 Plus 4 Ways

Once your lender assists you on how much house you can buy...

...Here’s a 4 plus 4 formula for home-buying success:

First Four

  1. Identify neighbourhoods you like and are in your price range.
  2. Think about what you really want in a house. Are you looking for a big yard or something with less maintenance, a new home or a place more mature and established? What about style?
  3. Decide how many bedrooms and baths you need, along with features such as a den, garage space, fireplace, swimming pool, etc.
  4. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find what you want and stay in your price range. If not, you may need to adjust what you want and your budget.

Keep one thing in mind: There is no such thing as the perfect house.

Second Four

  1. Make sure that the home you buy meets your needs, but you will drive yourself crazy if you go through dozens and dozens of homes searching for the "perfect" home.
  2. Take a list with you of must haves, items you can live without and price range so you won’t get sidetracked.
  3. Research values in areas of interest. Know what people are asking and, as importantly, what homes are selling for.
  4. The services of a good real estate agent can be quite valuable during this stage. They can pull up information in minutes and help you make good decisions.
