Your Home Search: Must-Haves, Nice-To-Haves, and Dream Features

When Buying a Home, You'll Be More Successful if You Consider What's a Necessity versus What's a Nice-To-Have.

 
The first step? Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Pre-approval helps you better understand what you can borrow for your home loan, and that plays an important role in how you’ll put your list together. After all, you don’t want to fall in love with a home that’s out of reach. Once you have a good grasp on your budget, the best way to prioritize all the features you want and need in a home is to put together a list.
 

Here’s a Great Way to Think About Them Before You Begin:

  • Must-Haves – If a house doesn’t have these features, it won’t work for you and your lifestyle.
  • Nice-To-Haves – These are features you’d love to have but can live without. Nice-to-haves aren’t dealbreakers, but if you find a home that hits all the must-haves and some of these, it’s a contender.
  • Dream State – This is where you can really think big. Again, these aren’t features you’ll need, but if you find a home in your budget that has all the must-haves, most of the nice-to-haves, and any of these, it’s a clear winner.
Finally, once you’ve created your list and categorized it in a way that works for you, let's discuss it together. This list in addition to your desired location is so important! I am here to coach you through the best ways to stick to it and find a home in your area that meets your needs.
