The House Hunt: How Many Homes Should I See?
So, you are beginning the hunt for a new home, and you ask yourself the question that most buyers ask, "How many homes should I see?"
Some questions to clarify with yourself and your Realtor before starting your house hunt:
- What are your central objectives for purchasing? Is this going to be your dream home, or somewhere you envision staying for only a few years? Is this a family home or an investment property?
- What are the most important elements you are looking for in your new home? Is it the neighborhood or perhaps the size of the house? Is it important that there are good schools near-by? Prioritize these and other features in order of importance.
- If you are buying as a couple, do you both have the same vision of what you are looking for? Deciding up front what you want, collectively, can greatly help simplify and clarify your search down the line.
