Well readers, yes, it’s been a while since my last post. It’s been a busy spring with open houses, parties, graduations, etc. It’s the last day of school in our town. From some, it’s the closing of one chapter, and beginning of another.
One of the most frustrating parts of home buying is not knowing if you should keep searching for the “perfect home”. It’s hard to resist wondering the potential of the “next home”. Here’s some tips to help you decide whether or not to continue your search.
The home has the majority of what you were looking for. At least those determined to be the highest priority.
The home’s condition doesn’t scare you or your wallet. The projects, issues found during the home inspection, or disclosed in the listing, you ready are “doable”. You have the time and means to be able to tackle them.
The price is within the range you were originally looking for, or is something you have determined you are able to handle.
The location works for you. Whatever was on your list: entertainment, schools, work, transportation. The location is not going to impact your lifestyle negatively.
The style of the home works for you. Your furniture can work with the floor plan. The size and storage are going to work for you.
6. It feels right
Sometimes, after looking at a lot of lemons, you realize that the one out there is the best of what you wanted and was asking for.
Sometimes, it’s not about compromise, but more about finding something that can help you move forward.
