If you’ve watched HGTV, and I know you have, I am sure that you know exactly what to expect when house hunting: You are only going to have to look at 3 homes. Your price range will afford you everything you are looking for. The negotiation process is fast and fun. We can always talk the seller into taking less. Every house you see is going to be turn key ready.
The tube does give us a good idea of what housing fashion trends are popping, different styles of building, and some negotiations, but the shortened TV version of hunting for homes is very far from the reality that you are soon to experience. That’s not to say that it isn’t still just as much fun!
When you get ready to start shopping around, it’s important to sit down with your real estate professional and go over the details that you would like to see in your next home. Remember that you aren’t very likely to find a home in your price range that has literally everything you want. If a first time home buyer gets more then 75% of the amenities they were looking for, they've done a great job.
Anything above that is a wonderful bonus and it does happen. It will be up to you, however, to decide which features you can be flexible about and which you can’t.
