Finding the Right Home OnlinePosted on 01/08/16
Thinking about buying a new home or condo? If so, we can guess how that search will begin… Googling “homes for sale in Destin, Florida,” with a price range likely to follow. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but you may be surprised by the number of listings that appear. To help streamline the list of homes you actually want to visit, here are a few tips you can use to find the right place online:
1. Consult the Map – It’s true pictures sell the home, but the location can break the deal. Sure there’s a fenced in yard and your kids will love the Jack-and-Jill bathroom, but is the home still worth it if it’s in a bad part of town, or if it will take you twice as long to get to work?
Save yourself some heartbreak and narrow your search down to sections that you would actually consider living in. Many resources offer a neighborhood search feature or mapping tools to help.
2. Remember Photos are Only 2D – Photos are extremely important, but it’s important to realize there is only so much that an image can convey. Cover your bases and if you like a home, make an appointment to see it in person. Not only will this give you a better feel for the place, but for its aforementioned location.
