Anyone who has worked with buyers for any length of time as a Realtor knows the moment they are in the right house!
Sometimes it takes months (sometimes longer) and sometimes its the very first house! If it's the first house, it's probably because you discussed completely what and where your client wanted to live. Even if you continue to look after that house, nothing else compares.
There is nothing like the feeling a Realtor gets when you walk in the door and you see a certain expression on your Buyers' faces and you just know. When this happens, it doesn't even matter what issues may be present, because your buyers know that this is where they want to live. It's an exciting moment and I have yet to get tired of it.
I never try to talk my buyers into a home for this very reason. We can look at hundreds of homes, but only one is going to elicit this particular feeling.
When I first meet with a potential buyer, we discuss payment first! How are you going to pay for this house? Have you been preapproved? Are you paying cash? Is someone else paying? I need to know and I need paperwork substantiating whatever plan you have. In the business it is called Proof of funds. If you are not preapproved, I will suggest places to go and people to work with. From there we can discuss all your wishes and make a list of everything you want. We will also discuss what you can live without and what you absolutely must have. If you are like everyone else, you will be scouring the Internet for your new home and sending me houses to check out. I will have to be the one to tell you that it's already off the market and it hasn't reached the site you are looking on. Don't hate me for that because meanwhile I am consistently sifting through every possible home that might interest you. I am determined to find my Buyers the right house! And I welcome that you are looking as well.
