If you are about to make one of your biggest long-term investments you should at least make sure it’s a purchase that you absolutely love, right? Spending a bit of time upfront to identify the must-have’s, the nice-to-have’s, and the can live without items will go a long way when deciding to make an offer on a home. Breaking it down to the different areas of your home will help organize your wants. Thinking about the interior, exterior and general usage of your home are the best ways to organize the wants and needs of your home.
Having a wish list and knowing what your home must have will allow you to more efficiently find the homes that fit your needs saving you time and energy. Narrowing down the location, the type of home, features, and the price range reduces the number of open houses you go to and allows you to make a more informed offer on a home you fall in love with.
Tip: Use Pinterest and other social marketing tools to begin gathering ideas of what you like.
