I invite you to subscribe to my Listing Manager, a FREE and easy to use account that gives you the ability to save and manage multiple properties. Think of this as your own private manager that allows you to search, track and save properties listed in the MLS, all in a private, password protected account. In addition to all the organizational tools you will have access to, you can even customize special email alerts so that you receive the latest listings that you are specifically looking for, as soon as they are added.
Prioritize your needs and wants
A helpful tool in selecting your next home is a prioritized list that includes “needs” your “wants” and your “absolutely do not wants”. For example: Do you prefer location over square footage? Kitchen square footage over closet space? Garage over carport? Is a two story home out of the question? Asking yourself these questions before employing a Realtor will enable your Realtor to search for properties that meet your specific needs and wants.
Know your numbers
Understand how your needs and wants correlate to your financing opportunities. He familiar with your credit score and research the available financing so that you can make an informed decision when your Realtor finds the perfect home for you.
Narrowing it down
Once you have narrowed your search to a few homes, try to imagine yourself doing the everyday things in and around those properties. Stop in the grocery store you would be using daily, how do you like it? Take a “test commute” to work from the properties to see if you will be happy with your new drive on a daily basis. If you have children in the home, be sure to check out the schools that each property is zoned for to determine which is best for your children.
