Buying a home involves a lot of decisions. You need to know you’re ready, and if you are buying with a partner, you’ll need to know you’re both on the same page. Knowing what you want is essential, and may sound easier than it is!
But if you can just get in writing, exactly what you need first, with your wants second, you’re way ahead of the game. How many bedrooms and bathrooms is a great starting point. Then go from there to whether you want a one-story or two-story, maybe a rambler, maybe that doesn’t matter to you. Maybe you really need a big, fenced in backyard for Fido, or there absolutely must be a heated garage. You decide what is crucial, what you can’t live without, and go from there. Your realtor will help you find exactly what you’re looking for, and will love you for knowing what you can’t live without!
