- Before you start to seriously search for that perfect home visit as many open houses and builders model homes as you can and make notes on floor plans you prefer, exterior styles, amenities that are a must and neighborhoods you really like. Knowing what you agree on beforehand will not only help your agent find the perfect home but will cut down on your frustration when you go out seriously looking.
- Interview several REALTORS® to find one that meshes with both your personalities because throughout this process you will be spending a lot of time together.
- Be flexible – It is highly unlikely that you are going to find a home that has everything you both want. As long as you can agree on the location, price and floor plan other items can be easily changed.
- Have fun – Remember that the home buying experience should be fun and rewarding so don’t get hung up on the little things and keep the bigger picture in mind. Can you see yourself enjoying this house for years to come and will it meet you and your family’s ever changing needs?
