PNW RE Minute- Shopping For Your Home

Even though shopping for your home is one of the best parts of the process, it can sometimes get a little out of hand and feel a bit overwhelming. At times, home buyers will have too many “Wants” on their list, and then have a difficult time compromising when they don’t find their dream house meeting ALL of the criteria.

It’s important to go over your pros and cons list with your Realtor before even beginning to look for a house. This way, your Realtor will be able to help you narrow down what’s most important and available in your price range. They will also know to steer clear of any homes with your absolute “Nopes!”- Perhaps near a noisy train track, ugh…

Aaron and I discuss tips and tricks when searching for that perfect dream home. What’s your Must-Have or Deal Breaker in a home? Comment below!
