Home Hunting: What Are Your Top Two Tips?

by - Saturday, September 29, 2012

Truth be told, we are not yet ready to purchase our dream home.  With a lot of things to consider and ponder on, it might sound simple but we become aware that buying a property is not a piece of cake.  Personally, we find it complicated since we can’t even seem to decide on whether to buy a house or invest in a high rise condominium unit when that time finally comes.

We often consult Google on different tips and advices from experts about finding our dream home.  Here are the first two [2] most important points in our list:
1.] Know what you want but be prepared to think outside the box.
According to Kevin McCloud, a British designer and Grand Designs host, the size of the house does not only refer to the number of bedrooms but in square meters.

Many have their idea of a dream home embraced around the number of bedrooms they want.  I know.  I used to be one of them not a long time ago.  Nowadays, I want to base my house hunting with the number of total square meters I need.  Just like most normal human beings, I of course have this image inside my head of how I desire it to look like.  It’s kinda blurry which I find advantageous so I can easily change its design whenever I want to.  Well, you’ll never know until you find that dream property of yours, right?

For example, if you are looking forward to spending the rest of your life in the beautiful City of Kansas, with the many Kansas City homes for sale [http://www.remax-midstates.com/KS/Kansas_City], you might not find the three bedroom haven you have in mind.  You realize however, that two bedrooms are enough because you find the location perfect.  Expect the unexpected!  Thinking outside the box is a good thing!

2.] Find a reliable real estate agent.
Before getting one, make sure to do your research first.  Ask the people you know.  They might refer a reliable real estate agent to help you out.  Gather details, make calls and inquire.  Know each one by meeting them face to face then compare notes.  Once you find him [or her], turn him into a friend.  You certainly do not want to work with someone who isn’t on your side, yeah?  Once you feel at ease, tell him the details about your dream house along with your budget.

If we are to get a house and lot or a condo unit, we can’t decide on that yet.  But rest assured, we’ll get there somehow.

How about you?  What are your top two tips when it comes to hunting for your dream home?
