I have talked with a lot of people lately about what they NEED in a home. And that's the key to your next home in North Dallas. Put your needs before your wants and this will help you decide which house is for you. But can you get both....what you need and what you want? I say yes. For example.....Can you get granite counter tops, brand new appliances, hardwood floors, 4 bedrooms, updated baths and a large yard with a fence all for about $105,000? Yes, you can.
However, you need to be in the Plano area because of your kids and school and you do need a little more space....because we all know if you have 2 kids that can multiply into 4 when they have all of their friends over. You really want the granite counter tops...but maybe you can get those later because this home has been reduced to $200,000. You have been approved for a $225,000 loan. So, let's head over to....
Buying a home is a personal decision. You may be able to spend more on a home but you don't want to because you just don't need it. On the flip side....it maybe important for you to spend more because you need more space if you work from home or location maybe important to you because of your job or schools. Listing pro's and con's of a home is a good thing but if you change those lists to wants and needs that may also be helpful to your final decision and your bottom line.

"Trenton Johnson is the best agent I've ever had. I'm a first-time home buyer, but I had gone through three other agents over a 12 month period that either weren't good listeners, wasted my time and gas, didn't communicate with me in a timely or efficient manner, didn't explain the process clearly, kept me in the dark, weren't professional, or asked me what I should do as if I was the agent.
