Prior to commencing your search for a new home, you should provide some thought to the following:
- What is the budget you have allowed yourself for the purchase?
- What area would you ideally like to live?
- What type of home would you prefer (eg. apartment,semi-detached or freestanding house, townhouse)?
- When do you actually want to move?
Essentially, you need to formulate a "wish list". Upon establishing your "wish list", you are then focused to take on the open-house inspections. You will soon discover whether your "wish list" is realistic or whether you may need to re-think either your budget or some of the items you listed as requirements for your new home.
You should also make your "wish list" know to agents. by alerting an agent to your requirements and your readiness to proceed, you will be at the forefront of the agent's mind when a suitable property does indeedcome onto the market. You may be offered first to look at a property and the agent may close a fast sale, resulting in both happy purchaser and a happy vendor.
