LOOKING AT HOMES

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX of Cherry Hill

Touring homes is exciting as you anticipate finding the home you've
been dreaming of. "I love it" may be the three words you
mutter when you first step into a home, but does this mean you've found
"the one"? Or could it mean your emotions got the best of you
when you walked into the kitchen and saw the perfectly restored cabinets
and countertops you've always wanted?
When it comes time to tour homes it's important to keep your emotions
in check and take a clear-headed, critical eye approach. Remember, you
can change superficial elements like paint and wallpaper. Rooms can look
completely different with your possessions in place and with a few
changes to the decor. Be sure to take a step back and consider
the more permanent attributes of the home like countertops, fixtures,
and the floor plan. Although changes can be made to these elements too,
remember remodeling costs both time and money. You'll also want to
consider your lifestyle and how you will use the home. If you have small
children, you may need a first-floor bathroom and bedrooms that are
close to the master. If you like to entertain, you may want to consider
a larger dining room or how rooms flow from one to another to
accommodate a large gathering.
Don't be surprised if after seeing several homes, the entire process
becomes exhausting and confusing. By the end of the day, your mind can
become fuzzy and you won't remember if the home with the fabulous
kitchen had three or four bedrooms or if the one with the big walk-in
closets also had a first floor laundry. Taking good notes is essential
and having your "wish list" of must-haves in hand will help
guide your tours and remind you to look for the important details.
Make the entire process less stressful and overwhelming with a great
buyer's agent by your side to:

    point out visual observations to consider
    provide information about the neighborhood and community
    show you comparable homes in the area
    most importantly - give you a great advantage going into
negotiations

If you do decide to make an offer on a house we tour together, as your
agent, I will be fully informed by the Seller Disclosures, visual
observations and comparing that property to others that have sold in the
area. You will be able to make a well-informed and competitive offer to
ensure you don't miss out on your perfect home!
Ready to start viewing homes? I am happy to work with you to find the
perfect home that suits your lifestyle and budget! My goal is to make
this a fun and enjoyable experience. Please feel free to call or email
me when you are ready to start looking. I welcome the opportunity to
help you.
