Shop with your head, not with your heart.
What type of home is right for you? This is one question you need to begin answering before you step foot into a home for sale.
Remember the 'Wants' and 'Needs' list you made a few weeks back? It's time to pull that back out and look at it after each home you visit. Check off what items the home fulfills and soon enough you'll find the most logical choice. Be sure to go over this list with your agent as well - the unbiased feedback from a third party can often times help resolve uncertainties. As you begin looking for homes, don't forget the purpose of your list. Shopping for a home is an emotional process. Following your heart will cost you money; using your head will save it.
