What You’ll Want To Keep In Mind When You’re House Hunting!

House hunting can be a fun and exciting time! When you’re looking for that special place to allow your life to unfold, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind.

  1. Dream, but realistically.
  2. Figure out how much you can afford. Not in a we can live on noodles and fast food salsa packets kind of way; a realistic view of what you can live with.
  3. Don’t buy a fixer-upper if you don’t have any idea (read experience) in fixing things up!
  4. Hunt for a neighborhood, not just a house. Visit the house at several different times during the day. Get to know the sounds, and noise levels and whether or not that fits with your lifestyle.
  5. Enjoy yourself! Can you imagine how much effort it’ll take to find the home of your dreams if you’re looking with a negative attitude?
  6. Get a great realtor!
  7. Get a good idea of what you really want before you begin house hunting and you’ll enjoy the process much more!
