A narrow view may be all you can see sometimes when looking at a setting sun.

A buyer or seller may want to think about a narrow view and when to use it and when not to. The topic here is for buyers.

When looking for a home you may want to use both a narrow view and an open mind.

Let us review the meaning of narrow from the free online dictionary  http://www.thefreedictionary.com and then see where it is relevant in regards to purchasing a home.

The definitions are below.

 Narrow as an adjectivie:

1) We will skip = doesn't seem relevant.

2) Limited area will apply to only some buyers for reasons such as work location or school preference or lake specific.  Cramped doesn't seem to apply here.

3) This does not seem like a good idea except for specific criteria such as location or something that is unchangeable. Like if you do not like the condition of a certain road such as a private one, it is likely that the condition is not going to change that much and maybe that one should be ruled out. 

4) This would not seem like a good idea unless you are in a rather desparate situation already and even  then you may want to reconsider.

5) Now this could apply, especially in regards to the inspection of a home. Preferably by a reliable and reputable home inspector.

6) We will skip = doesn't seem relevant.

 Narrow as a verb:

1) We will skip = doesn't seem relevant.

2) Narrowing it down to three possibilites and taking a closer look can sometimes be beneficial if the circumstances allow for it.  Sometimes there is just that right one and no other needs a closer look.

 The noun definitions don't seem to apply either.

So even though some narrowness can be beneficial it is still important to have an open mind.  I guess that will be another time..... although the definition is included below.
