Once you have your financial work (pre-approval, calculated your budget, etc.) completed, it is time to begin the process of looking for your new home. Before you start I would hope you have some sort of general idea as to what you are looking for. You obviously can’t get exactly what you want but the more know what you are looking for, the quicker you’ll find what you want. There are many factors involved in your decision, such as lot size, architectural style of the home, number of bedrooms, proximity to your place of employment, quality of schools, and the list goes on.
Many people like to see things in black and white when they are faced with making a decision. If you are one of those people, Coldwell Banker provides a Home Finding Needs Worksheet to help you prioritize your wants and needs. This certainly won’t eliminate the stress and second guessing involved in the home buying process, but it will definitely make the process easier. Please contact the office if you would like us to provide you with the worksheet.
