5 Ways to Make the Home Hunting Process Easier

October 12, 2010

Shopping for a home can be intimidating.  With so many things to do and think about, it's easy to feel overwhelmed.  However, it doesn't have to be that way.  Here are some good tips for making the home hunting process a lot easier and less stressful :

1. Get Your Mortgage Arranged in Advance.

    You don't want to find the ideal home on the market, only to face problems arranging a suitable     mortgage.  You might end up losing the opportunity.  So make mortgage arrangements in advance     by getting "pre-approved".  Then you can shop for a new home with confidence.

2. Clearly Define the Kind of Home You Want, and the Neighbourhood You Want to Live In.

    You can't view every home on the market.  So write down a clear description of the kind of home     you want.  How many bedrooms ?  Big kitchen ?  Pool ?

    And don't forget the Neighbourhood.  Upscale ?  Close to downtown ?  Lots of trees and park ?         Urban and close to shopping and theatres ?

    With this information, a Good Realtor can quickly create a shortlist of properties that meet your     criteria.

3. Take Good Notes

      After viewing  a few homes, you may easily start to forget the details.  Was it property #1 that had       the large Elm tree in the backyard ?  Or was that property #4 ?  If you take good notes, you'll be       able to make decisions later on about which homes to shortlist.

4. Take Care of Yourself. (And Your Family )

      Eat right.  Pace yourself.  Don't try to view many homes in one evening or Saturday afternoon.

5. Get Help

    A good Realtor can make the home shopping process go quickly and smoothly.
