You’ve been viewing houses for longer than you can remember, and you’re getting rather sick of it. We know and understand how trying this can be. Sometimes you walk into a place and it just is not what you are looking for or need or sometimes it is exactly what you want but the price is just not realistic for you at this time. In this post, we discuss a couple of things that homebuyers should look out for when viewing properties.
#1 The House is In Line With What You Need
You have a list, right? Of deal-breakers and of other variables that can either be worked on or makes something just not worth it. If you have found a house that ticks all the boxes on your list, you probably have found the one worth putting an offer in for.
#2 Can’t Find Any Flaws
If you simply cannot see any flaws whatsoever, meaning no necessary work to be done, a simple buy and move in, and you just love it, that is probably the house you should buy. The walls are perfect, no signs of leaks, no obvious repairs necessary, no maintenance on the garden. That is probably the house you want.
#3 You See Yourself Settling Down There
When you close your eyes, you see yourself living there, you can imagine all your furniture in all the spots you want to put them beforehand. You can even see your kids playing in the garden, and your kids’ kids when they are there. Your whole life kind of just falls into place when you envision yourself settling down in this house.
#4 You Refer to It as Yours
If you are already talking about the house as if it belongs to you, you’ve probably already bought it in your mind. This means you won’t really be tempted into buying any other place, whether it’s in a better neighborhood or if its price is a bit lower, you just won’t budge and cannot get this house out of your mind. It spoke to you, you have a connection with it, and it should be yours.
So there you have it. If you have ticked off any of these, or if you can relate to at least two of the points listed above, you probably know exactly what you want and your mind is made up. If you feel a bit overwhelmed by the buying and viewing and just can’t get a great feeling for a house just yet, hang in there! The perfect one should be along in no-time.
