Searching for Your Next Home OnlinePosted on 07/03/15
Have you recently started your search for real estate in Destin? If so, the odds are that it began online. With so many outlets and so many homes for sale, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Not to fear, we have some tips for you to help narrow down your search results and find the homes you actually want to visit.
For starters, be smart about pricing. If a lender has given you a number, determine how much from there that you are willing to spend on a home. Keep in mind that the absolute high-end of your budget isn’t the figure you should enter into your search criteria. You want to leave some wiggle room in the event of a bidding war or even closing costs.
An often understated feature of online searching is the map tool. Finding the perfect home in a less-than-perfect location will do no good. Avoid the heartbreak and after you filter by price, pinpoint the areas/subdivisions you would be most interested in living in.
