Before Looking for a Home

So you’re considering buying a home — we’re excited for you!

Even before looking for a home, save a TON of time and stress by answering questions to define what kind of home will meet your needs and wants. Knowing what you’re searching for can reduce feeling as overwhelmed!

Start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Will this be your new primary residence or is this a vacation/additional home?
  • What location(s) are you interested in?
  • What is your timeline for purchase and moving?
  • Do you want to be near schools, shopping, recreation?
  • How far are you willing to travel to and from work?
  • Are you interested in a Home, Condo, New Construction, or Vacant Land?
  • What style of Home do you prefer?
  • How many Bedrooms / Baths would you like?
  • What size garage will be needed?
  • Are you looking for Investment Opportunities?
  • Are you looking for Waterfront or Golf Course Communities?
  • Have you met with a lender and received a Pre-Approval?
  • What times are convenient for you to view properties?
