specialize in working with First
Time Home Buyers and have heard this line time and time
again. I love the house, everything is perfect, but "I just purchased a
new_____ (bed, table, couch) and it wont fit in the _________ (bedroom,
dining room, living room)" You fill in the blanks, but either way you
fill it in, it's still the same sad excuse.
Part of my job as a buyers agent for First time home buyers is to help
educate you and help you see past the little hurdles that often times
hinders buyers from purchasing the right home. Your furniture is not part of the
buying process. Stick to your needs and wants list. I
understand you recently purchased a new oversize couch and that you
are proud and happy of this purchase because it's your first real piece
of furniture. It's not a couch that was given to you by a friend or
relative that has seen many bad nights in your dorm or apartment.
There are certain things that can be changed in life, flooring, paint, furniture,
boyfriends/girlfriends, all can be easily changed. However
the lot that a home sits on, the location of the neighborhood and the
overall layout of the home are not readily changeable. These items
should be first priority to fit your needs list. Remember this is a
place that you are going to rest your head for the next few years and
in my opinion your plan should be for at least 5 years.
So if your plan is a 5 year one do you think that couch you purchased
will still be with you in 5 years or will you change your mind? Will
you then be disappointed by your home purchase based around an easily
disposable piece of furniture? My suggestion leave your
furniture out of the decision making process. If your furniture wont
work, surf your way over to craigslist and make a little extra cash. Don’t go furniture
shopping the day after you move in. Upgrade it
later on once you have lived in the home for a little time.
You can have empty rooms for a while, no one is going to yell
at you. Save up until you can afford what you actually want instead of
buying furniture just to fill a room. In the end you will be much
happier with your decision and calling your house a home.
Agent is an agent that represents the buyer in the transaction, looking
out for your best interest. Buyer's Agents are FREE to use. We get paid
by the seller's and dont get paid until you have successful purchased
your first home. Make sure to always have a buyers agent. ***
