Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Is There Such a Thing as a Perfect House?

Is There Such a Thing as a Perfect House?

On the Search for the Perfect House

When meeting many first time home buyers they tell me they want to get it right. They want ot find the perfect house. The buying process is somewhat intimidating but these excited buyers are out to find the perfect house or as close ot it as they can get. This is when it is time to have a genuine conversation about setting expectations and being willing to compromise.

Challenges with inventory may get in the way of the first home purchase. The market has been extraordinary in most markets and this means many buyers are having to compete in a bidding war. This is intimidating for the first time buyer and stands in the way of getting the perfect house. Financial constraints with down payment and affordability may limit the buyers ability to get the house they want. This is when compromise needs to come into play.

The good news is that there are many perfect houses. Though some may be lost in competing offer situations, there will be others coming on the market that may meet the needs even more. It is okay to love a home so much you can't imagine not getting it. But don't get downhearted if it doesn't work out. Appraisals, home inspections and unforeseen circumstances can stand in the way of the sale. Move on and realize there will be another one.

Ready to start your home searchA perfect house is one that is perfect for the current situation of the buyer. It may not be the newest, the prettiest or the biggest, but if it meets the needs of the buyer and is in an attainable price range, it could be the perfect house for the buyer today.

Don't think it has to be a forever house as life changes and needs change. The perfect house today may not be the perfect home for next year's needs. Get started now, find the perfect house for today's needs. Yes, there are some perfect houses out there.

Good morning, Debbie --- as we know there are no truly perfect houses but I like your definition as it relates to the reality of real estate. 

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena Area Real Estate 818.516.4393 (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 1 year ago

Hi Debbie Reynolds  we all know there is not a perfect house but a feeling we get that this house would be a place we could call home

I learned that "perfect" is relative, Debbie Reynolds ... the imperfections of each of our homes is exactly what has endeared them to us over time ... and the things we've remembered fondly and smiled at later.  Perfectly imperfect ... but the perfect home for us at the time ...

Debbie,  Ah ... the "perfect house" likely does not exist. I do believe that there are perfect matches with buyers and homes.

Debbie Reynolds I don't think there is such a perfect house. People have different needs,

Hi Debbie - That's a good way to look at it. It has become more difficult for buyers to find the ideal these days, but with a bit of flexibility and patience, most will be very satisfied.

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) over 1 year ago

No Debbie there is no such thing as a perfect house in the eyes of a buyer. However I have had sellers who think theirs is perfect and that is why it should get $50k over the comps.

Prospective home buyer will be in very good hands when they use your professional real estate services.

Hi Debbie... this is a discussion I have with each and every buyer clients, regardless of price point... that at the end of the day, it has to be the right home for them, but unless their name is Bill Gates and unless money is no object, everyone who shops for a home ends up compromising on something. The key is to know that your non-negotiables are in the search for a home.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) over 1 year ago

Debbie that is a conversation we have all the time with home buyers.  As it happened one of our long time clients that has bought and sold several times with us decided to move back to town.  We again had 'the talk' and low behold not only did we find the perfect house for them it also offered so much more than was on their list.  It was so fun!  Just closed last week and they're over the moon happy.  Rarely does a home come along this perfect ++!!

Debbie, ah!  That elusive search for perfection!  This is a sweet post, and it's such fun to help buyers get as close as they can.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 1 year ago

I once had a buyer tell me what the perfect house was.  It was one that was always about $100,000 more than they could afford!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 1 year ago

Hello Debbie and I wrote a post several months ago with the same title and there is no such thing as a perfect home.

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz, Las Vegas Henderson Homes for Sale (Realty ONE Group) over 1 year ago

Debbie I have yet to see the perfect house, but if one exists I bet you are the one to find it :)

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 1 year ago

We just try to get close Robert Vegas Bob Swetz and make buyers happy.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Funny how the more expensive it is the more it meets all their wishes, Myrl Jeffcoat

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

It is a challenge at times. I am going through one of those challenges right now, Patricia Kennedy.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

That is a fact John Pusa, all buyers have different needs.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Good for you Anna Banana Kruchten and know the buyers are delighted.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

I try really hard to find as close as I can get, George Souto.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Hi Hannah Williams, getting close and seeing buyers happy is a good feeling too.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Michael Jacobs, their may be several homes that meet the needs and make the buyers happy if they will let them.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Certain needs have to be met for the bueyr to move forward, Nina Hollander.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Thank you for your endorsement, Roy Kelley.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Funny how that works, Noah Seidenberg with those sellers I mean.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Yes there are good matches and it may not be realized totally until after the buyer has lived in the house for awhile,  Kathleen Daniels

Flexibility and compromise often are the solutions Dick Greenberg.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

"Perfection" a funny concept.  I love my house.  It is not perfect . . . could use some updates, but hey, it IS a perfect home for me. 

Good post to bring it back to reality!

Posted by Carla Muss-Jacobs, RETIRED (RETIRED / State License is Inactive) over 1 year ago

I agree with you Carla Muss-Jacobs, Principal Broker (503) 810-7192. My house is near perect for me and I love it.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Even when folks build their dream home, it is not perfect.  They did not make the kitchen big enough, or pantry big enough, or forgot a mud room.....something.  I've not seen the perfect home yet.

Posted by David Alan Baker Laveen & South Phoenix Realtor, Your local Expert (HomeSmart) over 1 year ago

Hi David, I have built several homes and like you said there is always a little something I wish I had done different. I still love the house but if only.....

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

Ifwe just look for what is perfect for know that is all we need. Thanks all for the commnets.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 1 year ago

I have had more than one perfect home but I will be excited about the next one. I want a comtemporary home either in Jupiter or Juno Beach Florida becasue the perfect house is one where you are happy.
