A Critical Early Step Toward Buying Your Dream Home
Shopping for a new dream home can be overwhelming. Finding a real estate agent, looking at homes online, and applying for loan approval, there is a lot to do, and it can be difficult to know where to start. Believe it or not, there is a first step that every dream home buyer should take–before they start interviewing real estate agents and before they look at even one home online.
Know What You Can’t Live Without
Make a list of everything you want in a home. If you are part of a couple, you should each have your own list. When you have completed
your home purchase wish list, take a look at each item. Ask yourself, “Is this something that I really need in order to enjoy life in my new dream home?” Then, get rid of anything that you know you can do without, and still be perfectly content.
The Tough Decisions
Now it is time to prioritize the wish list. The top two items should be those items on which you will not compromise, as living without them would make you miserable. For some folks that might be a gourmet kitchen or space for a garden. The bottom two items should be those that you are willing to compromise on.
Now, compare your dream home purchase wish list with your partner’s. Anything that is on both of your lists is a priority and should probably be moved to the top. Inevitably, though, there will be items each of you will need to compromise on, thus the little “bargaining chips” at the bottom of the list: sort of a “I’ll give you the garage in exchange for the fireplace” type of thing.
