When you’re ready to buy your first home, you probably have a laundry list of things you want the house to have. You know that you might not be able to find your dream home the first time out, but you still want a property to have certain features before you consider making an offer on it. At Nau Real Estate Services, we’ve helped many first-time homebuyers find a house that fits their needs, and we’d love to work with you on discovering your new residence!
Making Your List
Before you set out looking for homes, it’s important to make a list of the features you’d like to have and the details you want each home to offer. Start out with these two categories, labeling each one – the first being “Want” and the second “Need.” You may want your master bathroom to have a Jacuzzi tub, but you don’t necessarily need it in order to live in the house. You do need the house to have reliable plumbing and lighting, and if there are questions about those, you may want to pass on making an offer.
Looking at Multiple Properties
When you’re looking for houses for the first time, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of properties that are on the market and in your budget range. It can be easy to fall in love with the first or second house you see, and you may ignore or not be aware of their flaws, simply because you want the homebuying process to be over. You’re excited but also nervous, and that’s okay. However, you’ll want to take the time to look at multiple properties before you even consider making an offer on one, and as your real estate agent, we’ll work with you on narrowing down your choice.
