These are the Top 4 Tips to consider when buying a home:
Be sure to look at a minimum of 3-5 homes. The first one you see might be the best you will see, but to ease your mind and avoid buyers remorse be sure to look at other homes for comparisons.
It is hard to find a home that has 100% of what you are looking for, so make a list of what is important to you and rank the list from most important to least important. Rank the houses you see based off of your list.
Keep an open mind while looking at houses, some sellers have big furniture, odd color choices, etc… but you should focus on the space available and will it work for you.
Visit as many Open Houses as you can to see what else is out there on the market, it is even good to look at something that is not exactly the style you are wanting. This will either confirm your desires or it may open new styles for you to look at.
