How to Know You've Found the Right House

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Antonelli Realty 3137972

Finding the right house can be a lot like dating: it pays to be choosy, but you should also remain open and flexible. Below are a handful of ways you can tell if you’ve just seen the house for you.

You don’t want to sleep on it. Sleeping on it (i.e., waiting until tomorrow to make a decision) may sound sensible, but if you’re in a hot housing market, it doesn’t pay to lose time. If you walk out of a property and immediately want to make an offer, go for it. Trust your instincts.

You feel at home. This may seem obvious, but your future home should make you feel warm and welcome as soon as you walk in. Pay attention to how you feel when you walk the halls.

You imagine growing in the space. Whether you see that extra bedroom as a future nursery or that finished basement as a hangout for your tots when they finally become teens, imagining your family growing and evolving inside the home is a great sign.

You’re dreaming of furniture. When you walk into a home and immediately get excited about setting your things up inside, the home is talking to you, and it pays to listen.

It meets most of your needs. While it doesn’t pay to stick to a long and rigid list with details like a wrap-around-porch or bay windows, the simple basics like location, budget and number of bedrooms should be within the lines of what you want.

"Finding the right house can be a lot like dating" - yes, and I once had buyers that kept passing on every house expecting the next house would be even better and after many showings, they decided not to buy.  There's no 'perfect' house - only houses that perfectly "meets most of your needs."

Good Morning, Paul, Yes Indeed, I agree with you. When it comes to choosing a house you are just like dating. I still remember the feeling of satisfaction when I first buy our home. Thanks for Sharing!
