One of the most important things to do when purchasing a home is to be honest about how you live and where you want to live. Ask yourself questions like: Can I really live without that 2nd bathroom? Is the busy street really not a concern for me? Will this walk be too far for me on a zero degree day in winter?
Assess your deal breakers, and know what you will and won’t tolerate. If location is a concern, plan to drive by the homes you are interested in seeing before you make an appointment. Save yourself time by scrutinizing each potential home and asking yourself – honestly – if it will meet your needs.
