When you're searching for a home there are three main considerations:
1. The home itself
2. The home's location
Now any of those considerations can be further split into more factors to consider, but less say the bottom left circle captures all the key features for your desired home. The number of bedrooms, garage, lot size, etc. There may be many homes that fit all the criteria, or just a few.
The top circle for location takes into account a needed school district, proximity to work, other key needs (airport, entertainment, etc.). Maybe you're willing to go a little further, or not far at all.
The bottom right circle is your budget. Maybe you can make the budget a bit bigger for the PERFECT set of circumstances.
Each of these circles overlap with the others.
Any time you get TWO of the circles overlapping, you're close to the right home, but something isn't ideal.
Overlap Home and Location, but not Price and you've got a home you can't afford to buy.
Overlap Price and Location, there's something about the Home that doesn't fit your needs.
Overlap Home and Price, but Location is wrong and maybe you've got the wrong school district, or your commute just doubled.
Your target is the SWEET SPOT, where all three overlap. A Home with the right features, in the right Location, and for the right price.
That sweet spot may be small if your criteria are very rigid, or can be grown if any of the three factors have flexibility.
An experienced agent can help you identify that Sweet Spot that satisfies your home needs.
