The best thing about home shopping after you researched the neighborhood and see some tips. You know you are prequalified to buy a home. You know you have the funds available to purchase. And you know you have hired the right real estate agent to help you successfully navigate the journey of homeownership.
But then how do you know the house is perfect for you?
First and foremost thing you need to do is to figure out what really your ‘perfect home’ looks like.
Then there are things you should consider
1) The House Fits Your Basic Needs
The dynamics might not hit every bullet point on your list, but it meets the basic requirements. The house has the number of rooms and space you need. Maybe it doesn’t have a car parking garage,then, you realize that buying a house with a garage is not important. Maybe you suddenly realize you could build a garage. Being flexible about which issues are deal-killers is a good quality to develop.
2) The House Embraces You the Moment You Enter
Within three seconds of entering the house, you will know whether it feels warm and comforting. Does it seem to speak to you? Does the house invite you to explore? Does it feel, well… Right? Like home? Then it probably is.
3) You Want to Stop Looking at Other Homes
All of the other homes you’ve been looking at no longer appeal to you. The homes on that list you’ve been carrying around seem insignificant. Moreover, the homes you had previously rated bad have now fallen to a good rating. The homes you have seen pale in comparison. You would feel like a traitor to this home if you went to visit other homes.
4) You Begin to Envision the Furniture Arrangement
If you walk into the master bedroom and can immediately envision your bed against a particular wall, this might be your house. If you find yourself thinking that the living room window is a perfect spot to put a tree come Christmas, you’re already hooked.
