Love Your Northwest Florida HomePosted on 02/07/14
Let’s be frank – homes are expensive. They are a major investment. They are where you will spend an immense portion of your time. You should be totally and completely in love with a house, your future home, before you sign on the dotted line.
For some homebuyers it’s a feeling they get when they walk in, but others may need to evaluate a bit more. No matter what your approach to buying a home, know what matters most to you before you ever walk in the door of a potential home. Sit down with your spouse, or even the whole family, and make a list of what will make or break your relationship with a home.
Look at your current residence and the reasons you are shopping. Is it the size of the rooms? Are there not enough rooms? Are you able to purchase a home in Destin or your desired neighborhood? There are so many questions to ask yourself that will help you ensure you form a loving, lasting relationship with your home purchase.
Don’t forget that compromise is often required in most relationships. You have your list now remember what your must-haves are and the difference between what you want and what you need. Just a little preplanning and thought will ensure you find your dream home and that your home search doesn’t end in heartbreak!
