Get your home buyers punch list ready and let me tell you why. Every home buyer is looking for that house that just says 'I want you' to them. So setting expectations for yourself, the home buyer, and the real
estate agent who represents you is more than coming up with a punch list of must haves in a home. From both the real estate agent and the home, a home buyer should expect certain needs being met. This home buy is usually the largest purchase in your life so requiring certain demands being met is so important.
This punch list of requirements should be met accordingly no matter how bad you want a home. What will it cost you in terms of convenience, money or peace of mind if not met? Only you can decide ( well along with your lender).
Be realistic and try not to let emotion take over. The list should be written down or on your mobile device. Keep track of decision points and as best as possible be objective about it. Sometimes the home buy is truly a matter of dollars and cents.
Things you expect and deserve from your new home and your real estate representative can be summed up, as follows:
From the real estate agent expect:
- Know how
- Trusted source
- Web site
From the Home expect:
- Price range affordability
- Home condition
- Final cost
These are key elements for a home buyer to consider and yes, this punch list is far from complete. Now that I have given you a beginning point just go and add to it.
Exercise good judgment and use a knowledgeable Realtor that will guide you well. Just like you don't go to your plumber to fix your electrical problems, so you don't use an agent that does not have the know how to be your home advocate! Get your Home Buyers Punch List going.
