Is this the Right Home to Buy?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Centre

In the process of buying a home there are many decisions that buyers have to make along the way.   Some of these decisions include:  How much can I afford?    New construction or Resale home?   Is this a good time to buy?   How much should I offer on a home?    What type of inspectors should I use?   Is this a good investment?        The list of questions could go on and on and on.     However, in my experience as a Realtor, I believe one of most important and often neglected questions tends to be "Is this the right home for us to purchase?"

A lot of people might believe that they will just know if it the right home for them when they see it.   However, I find that buyers will often get caught up in the excitement and the emotions of finding a home.   They will often either avoid some issues with the home and/or discount them as not being very important.       When you work with a Realtor they should be guiding you through these emotions. Your Realtor should ask lifestyle questions and point out everything these see in the home.  As I tell my clients, I will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly about any home and then you can decide if it is a good fit.   Check out the video on some of the tips that I give my buyers when they look at homes.   Hopefully it can help you too!

Buying a home is not like buying a sweater, you can not just return it if you decide later you don't like it.   Before and during looking at a home there are many things you and your Realtor can do to help guide you to buying a home that you will love.
