Find that Balance Between Wants and Needs

April 8, 2022

We all know that in today’s market there are so few homes for sale. I fully believe that it can feel challenging sometimes as a potential buyer to find a home that checks off all your boxes. But if you find a property that checks off the most essentials and the “has to haves” then you have likely found the home that will make you happy and fit your needs. 

So how do you go about finding a home that does this? Well here is what I recommend. First I would recommend that you start out by determining your budget. Figure out exactly what you are able to spend and can afford comfortably. If you are unsure of how to do that fully contact me and I will get you in touch with a finance person who can help walk you through this entire process. 

Next, I would highly recommend that you, and your spouse if you are looking for a family home, sit down and make two lists. Once of the things your home has to have to make it fit your actual needs. This list should be just the necessities. How many bedrooms do you have to have? Do you need a home office? Do you have to have a basement for an in-law suite? These are some things that can help you create this list. 

Finally, you want to create a list of wants or things that would be nice to have. Nice to haves are just a list of things that you would like to have and that would make the home “perfect” but are not make or break items to determine you buying the home or not. These are just things that would make the home even better for you but are not the things you have to have. 

In addition to those things you can have a list of things that are more of dreams. These are things that in a perfect world you can have in your dream home. They are not needs or even things that could make life easier or better but just simply more luxy things. 

Once you have made these lists or determined the things that fit into these categories for you and your family then it is time to call me! Or you can even call me now and we can sit down together to determine what some of these things would look like for you.
