Springtime is here, and I know from talking with many of you lately that your thoughts are turning to your next home. That’s awesome! Have you solidified your home’s criteria yet? Well, location and price are huge factors for most people. You want a neighborhood that’s close to work, family, entertainment, recreation, etc. As for price, none of us care to be “house-poor”. That can turn a home into more of a prison.
So, here are some other dream home criteria to consider: 1.) Type of property (single-family, town home, condo, duplex, etc.) 2.) Condition (is a fixer okay or does it need to be 100% updated?) 3.) Features / layout (you might want a 3-car garage to house your motorcycle collection or an open kitchen for entertaining) 4.) Amenities (game room, swimming pool, interior upgrades, outdoor entertaining space, etc.)
Just know that you can scale-back on some of the amenities if needed to keep you purchase within budget, but make sure you’re comfortable with the things that cannot easily be changed about the home. Location is the #1 thing that can’t be changed, so be sure to get that part right.
Have a great day, and happy home shopping to you all!

"Seana Taylor was a wonderful agent. Took us months to find a house. She was very patient and helpful in the process moving forward. She helped us find a lending agent with fantastic rates and we were kept informed of everything every step of the way. This being my first house to buy, it was nice having the experienced help of taking the necessary steps to make sure everything was done on time and in the correct order. I really appreciate Seana and JP for everything they did for us. I would highly recommend her. Which I did, to my mother, who is going through the closing process now on the house Seana just found for her!"
