You’ve found the one. It has everything you’re looking for. But there’s still something holding you back making you wonder, “Is this the right choice for me?” The decision to put an offer down on the house is a heavy one, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine when you are ready to end your search because you’ve found the right one. It’s understandable to be wary, but these helpful tips will help you find clarity and decide when you’ve found the perfect house for you.
It Fits Within Your Budget
Budgets can be flexible, but make sure your “dream home” is a house that you will be able to afford. A particular house may seem perfect, but if it is entirely outside of your budget, it isn’t the right one for you and will be a decision you may regret if you can’t comfortably afford to live in it.
There’s No Deal Breaker
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find a home that has absolutely everything you are looking for. Most homes in the Coachella Valley are beautiful, but there will still be components that clients are specifically looking for in a home. Not every house has it all. If it’s a pool, extra garage, or larger living room that is most important to you, don’t settle if it is missing your “deal breaker.” There will be small compromises you make when finding the perfect home, but there will always be a deal breaker that will help you decide if it is truly the right one for you.
You Can’t Stop Talking About It
Do you find yourself telling your friends about the amazing house you found? Or leave the house showing and find yourself still talking about it hours later? This is a good sign that you’ve found a house that just might be perfect for you.
You Compare It To Other Houses You Visit
You’ll be visiting many different houses during your home-buying journey, and it is inevitable, you will compare them. But it there that one house you can’t stop comparing to the others? Do you find yourself turning down other options because it doesn’t live up to this one? Another sign you shouldn’t ignore.
You Don’t Want To See Other Options
Finding the perfect house will be a long journey, but another tip to determining the right one is to recognize when you don’t want to see any more. The options for beautiful homes in the Coachella Valley are endless, and the more you see, the more options you have! But if you find yourself no longer as excited to see the next one, you might have already set your mind on the perfect one.
It Feels Like Home
At the end of the day, the most important factor to finding the perfect house is recognizing when it feels right. The commitment to purchasing a house means you can imagine making it your home, and if it feels right, that’s how you know. Remember, your real estate agent is there to help with any important decisions during the process of buying a house. I live in the Coachella Valley and love this community. The Coachella Valley is an amazing place for first-time home buyers, those seeking out a second home, real estate investors, or anyone on the search for the perfect new house.
