When you’re searching for your dream home, you want to make a logical and thought-out decision that makes sense both personally and financially. It’s easy to allow your emotions to get in the way of this, and, suddenly, you might be overspending on a property that isn’t right for you. The real estate team at Foxtrot Realty have shared how to help you stay focused on what matters when buying a new home in Green Valley Ranch, CO.
Creating a Must-Have List for Buying a House
1. Make Your List
Sit down with a pen and paper and think about the features you would love to have in your new home. It might be something you’ve always wanted or felt your current home should have. If you want a backyard for the dog or your own walk-in closet in the master bedroom, write it down. Have your spouse do the same thing in a different room.
Now that you’ve created your list, put everything in order of how important it is to you. Compare your list with your partner’s and start making a new list of priorities. Anything that appears on both of your lists should immediately go to the top of the master list.
3. Consider Small Renovations
Looking at your master list, highlight the features you would not be able to change about your new home. For example, the number of bedrooms and size of the backyard are things you won’t be able to change, so they should be the most important. On the other hand, you can move items like a kitchen tile backsplash or a paved patio to the bottom of the list. These can easily be added with an eventual project on the new home.
Bring this list with you when you meet with your agent at Foxtrot Realty and view real estate listings. Their agents know the area best and can help you narrow down your search to find your dream home. The list will help you stay focused on what’s most important, so you get what you need when buying a new home.
