Streamline the House HuntFinding that perfect home to call a home sweet home can be hard because you’re choosing something permanent, you’re choosing a neighborhood, a lifestyle, a commute and so on. And there are so many housing options out there, from condos to single-family homes to townhouses and even planned communities. Things can get a little confusing. However if you streamline the home buying process, things can get better and easier.
It’s important to know what you want or at least have a vague idea of your likes and dislikes the local San Antonio movers remind you. Especially, if you’re buying a home with a spouse, you both have to be on the same page. Agree or agree to disagree on things, features or amenities in the home, number of stories and so on. Discuss things first before you even start researching.
The San Antonio movers suggest you try to make a list together. Include things that you both consider to be musts, things that would like and things you don’t want at all or that are not important to you at all. The musts should be non negotiable. For example, you might want to buy a house that is not more than half an hour away from work. Or a home that has a washer and dryer in the home and not outside the unit like many condo buildings. This section of your list might also include school districts and things that you can change yourself.
Your list should also include things you would prefer but are not deal breakers, like an upgraded kitchen for example. Or hardwood floors versus carpet. However these are things you can change yourself. If you found a home that includes your list of musts but had carpet, you can always install the floors yourself or have a handyman do it for you.
The deal breakers will also help you limit your search. Bad neighborhoods might be on your list of deal breakers. If there are way too many repairs like a leaking roof, that might be a deal breaker for you and your spouse. Price and budget is one of the top deal breakers, you should definitely have an idea of what you can afford before you hire a realtor or do your own research online. You can also get a pre-approved letter so you’ll have more credibility when you’re out there placing offers on homes you really like.
