You may have dreamed up the black shutters, landscaped lawn, and white picket fence, but finding the “perfect home”, in truth, is as elusive as finding the perfect job or the perfect spouse. Perfection doesn’t really exist.
Unfortunately, many buyers disagree, and as they become paralyzed by the idea of perfection, their search leaves them disappointed over and over again.
To avoid this predicament, we recommend working with a skilled real estate agent, like those at Donnelly + Co.
Having an agent’s input can help you better understand where you are willing to make compromises in order to settle on your not-so-perfect home. With the right set of questions, you’ll be able to sort through what you can and cannot live without.
Because while finding your ideal home is hard, finding it in a tight market where inventory is low can be even more torturous. There often isn’t time to take more than one look at a home before deciding to go for it. This is why we typically caution our buyers about letting emotion drive them toward or away from making an offer.
In the end, there is a lot of thinking and processing that can help you prioritize your wants and needs and really prepare you for the home-buying process. And with a skilled agent by your side, you’ll have even better luck finding your match made in real estate heaven.
