Look for these signs to make sure the home you’re thinking about buying is perfect one for you.
I think most of us can agree that the home buying process isn’t always has fun or exciting as it seems. Sometimes doubt or even buyers remorse can begin to set in. Don’t be afraid, these feelings are all normal. The best way to over come these emotions is to look for signs that reassure you that perfect home is right in front of you.
1. The Home Embraces You As You Enter
Your new home should feel like an escape from reality. Does it embrace you? Do you feel safe? Does it speak to you? Is it comfortable and cozy? Does it invite you to explore? If you answer yes to these questions the answer is that the home is probably a perfect fit for you. Most of the time you are able to feel the vibe that the home is giving out within the first ten seconds of walking in. Make sure you approach every home with an open mind and an open heart. The house is just the physical structure, but a home is the emotions and memories you create that will follow you for a lifetime.
2. You Are Possessive About The Home
When you are in the market to buy a home chances are that you will not find a home that is absolutely flawless. There will be flaws such as stained countertop, outdated wallpaper patterns, one or two cracked tiles or even weird wall color combinations. If your Real Estate agent points these flaws out and you feel very connected to the home and willing to overlook these flaw, it might feel like they are insulting you. This means you’re possessive over something that isn’t even yours yet. Take the hint, this house is probably right for you.
3. The Home Fits Your Basic Needs
If you’re looking for a home with three beds and two baths make sure you only see homes with three beds and two baths. Sometimes people are willing to sacrifice some features in a home in order to get other less important features. Think long term, on average a homeowner lives in their home for about 7 to 10 year, a lot can happen in that amount of time so you’re going to want to ask yourself these questions; Is this home a place that I can see living in for 10 years? Does the home meet my basic needs? Is there enough room for my family to feel comfortable? How close is the home from my job, the kid schools, grocery stores or shopping malls? The home buying process is not a difficult one but it is very time consuming and you need to take everything into account.
4. You Can’t Wait To Show It Off
Have you ever been in the market for a new car and when you finally see that car you’ve been wanting you can almost imagine how you would feel driving it out of the dealer? Or when you’re so excited that you can wait to wear a brand new outfit you bought for the office Christmas party? These are signs that you’ve probably made a right choice when you purchasing the car or the outfit. The same should apply when buying a home. You know the home is perfect for you when you feel excited and can’t wait to post hundreds of pictures on social media and invite friends and family over for the house warming party. The home buying process can be a very emotional one and if you feel the right emotions you will quickly realize that the home you’re currently looking at the the perfect one for you.
5. You Want To Stop Looking At Other Homes
One of the most important signs that you wan to look out for is feeling like you want to stop look at other homes. As someone in the market for a home you probably have narrowed down your options and have a specific area that you would like to live in. Depending on that area there will either be many homes to look at or a very limited amount of homes. Nonetheless, when you’ve seen the perfect home for you will feel like no other home matters anymore. You go to sleep thinking about the home, you wake up thinking about the home and during your day you might even unintentionally begin to think about the home. If two weeks have past and you can’t help but to constantly think about the home then this is probably you “lightbulb” moment. The house is for you
One of the most important things you should do as someone in the market for a home is to take initiative. The real estate market can sometimes move very quick especially when a home is priced right and in a great location. The last thing that you would want is to miss out on an opportunity of having your perfect home. When you find that perfect home that you’ve been out looking for make sure you take initiative an tell your agent to submit an offer. In real estate you have to be on your toes and one step ahead of everyone else. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to use a trusted real estate agent, a good agent will be well in communication with you about market shifts and will always be looking out for your best interest.
