8 Steps to Buying Your First Home : Step 3

Step 3 : Finding the Right Home

Not everyone knows what they’re looking for when starting their first home search. It’s best to start with some questions like : do you see yourself doing work to the place on day one? Or, do you want to move right in with no projects at all? What about location? Do school districts matter to you? What are possible deal breakers?

Start a list and start thinking about the things you can’t change. You can’t change location of a home, you can’t change space, and you can’t change natural light. Focus on the core aspects that are linked to the value of the home. Updates are easy. So prioritize the right elements and you’ll protect your investment.
