Want vs. Need When Home Shopping

Mansion

It’s quite a place, isn’t it? Although this probably isn’t what you actually have in mind for your next home purchase, you may be guilty of a mistake that a lot of home buyers, particularly first-time home buyers, make. You have too many things on your “must have” list, making it seem like you can’t afford a nice home in Ellwood City or anywhere else.

 

Take the “Extras” Off Your List

If you have “must have” list that’s lengthy and has lots of things that you don’t really need, consider going over your list and revising it, keeping in mind that you can add some features¬†over time. Granite countertops? Are they a must or an extra? You can find a plenty of homes with attractive kitchens that may not include granite, but they are stylish and functional. Put the granite on the list of “things to do” somewhere down the line if you find a house that’s the right size, in the right location and in your price range. After all, putting your own, personal stamp on your new house is part of the fun!

Focus on the Big Picture

Start by making a list of “must haves” before you begin looking at homes so that you know what you can’t compromise on, then stick to it. If you need three bedrooms because you have a child and need either a home office for your work or a guest room for your frequently visiting parents, stand firm and let us know that a one-bedroom house just won’t work for you.

Focus on the essentials – how many rooms you need, whether you have to have a garage or a yard, etc. You can compromise on the details because they are usually easy, relatively inexpensive fixes that you can do now or later. At Look At My Homes, we want you to feel confident that the house you purchase or rent from us will be the right home for your family. If you have questions, ask! We’ll answer you honestly and help you find the Ellwood City house that’s right for you, your family and your wallet.
