Purchasing a new home is both stressful and rewarding. The day you get the keys to what you can now call your own home, is a feeling like no other. A house to fix up and decorate just the way you want. Getting to the point of buying a house is something not to be taken lightly. Because I have purchased 5 homes now, I thought I would share my 10 secrets for buying your dream home.
I wouldn’t say I have my all-time dream home right now, but we are working very hard to make it what we want it to be. All we are really lacking now is more property. With my own advice, I think we will be owning our dream home in just a matter of a few years.
1. Make a plan. If you are buying a home with a partner or spouse, then be sure you know what is important to each other. You may have different deal breakers, or needs. Be sure to convey those ahead of time, so you don’t get caught up falling in love with a house that may have your spouse’s deal breakers. It is also important to know your price limits and areas you are okay with living.
