Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: How to Know When You Have Found the Right Home to Buy

How to Know When You Have Found the Right Home to Buy

Ask Yourself These Questions

Home buyers are having to make quick decisions in our now fast paced market. Since emotions come into play and also urgency to not let one slip away how is a buyer to know that this is the one and action is required sooner than later? 

New home in Stones Manor

Can you see yourself living in the home? Can you feel a peace that the home feels like a home? Visualizing day to day living in the home will make it feel real and personal. Home buying takes in all the senses and the right one feels right and good.

If you are looking in your correct price range there are some questions you can ask yourself to double check that this is the home to make an offer on. 

1. How did you feel when you stepped foot into the home? Did you get good vibes?

2. Was there a room or place in the home that delighted you and exceeded your expectations?

3. Can you imagine waking up each morning and looking forward to enjoying that first cup of coffee or tea in the home?

4. Do you look forward to sharing your home with friends and family?

5. Can you see yourself in the home 2-3 years from now?

6. What are some things that put a smile on your face about the home?

7. Does it feel right and would you be sad tomorrow if another buyer bought your home and you missed out?

Home buying is emotional but that doesn't means it shouldn't be a smart decision. Think about your answers to the above questions and if they are positive then don't be afraid to move forward with a strong offer. Waiting can cause you to lose the right home and it may take awhile for another like it to come along.

This is very good reading for prospective home buyers.

These are all excellent questions buyers should ask themselves when their Realtor suggest they make a full price offer or even higher than full price. How deeply will the buyer regret it if someone else got the house?

Good morning Debbie.  These are great questions that buyers can use to determine the right home to purchase.

Hi Debbie Reynolds - These are all great questions to ponder for buyers. This may get those on the fence to get off and make that offer.  Thanks for sharing them.

Good afternoon Debbie - those questions are essential.  Nothing is ever perfect so you have to go with what is important but make a decision.

Debbie that is a really good list of questions.  Our market is not at the fast moving pace yet, but we are finally starting to move in that direction.

Debbie, sometimes we have to be the voice of reason, as emotions can make a decision, and may be the wrong one!
