3 Crucial Questions to Ask Yourself Before Choosing 'The One'

Getting it right the first time!
Posted: November 04, 2019 by Jessica Wimberly

We are Pro's in helping our clients find 'The One'. And while some of our clients know immediately, others need a little guidance - That's what we are here for!

Today we wanted to discuss 3 of the most important questions that you should be asking yourself while on the house hunt. Let's get started!

1. What is your “WHY”?

What is the #1 reason you want to own a home? This should be the driving force behind the decisions you make throughout the home buying process and ultimately, the reason why you choose the home you purchase.

Whether you want to own your own home so you can paint the walls any color you want, have dance parties in the kitchen, put a hot tub on the deck or just have your own kitchen to cook in, every buyer has a reason why they want to buy a home.

Maybe you want to make a good investment so that you can continue making real estate investments down the road. What’s your “why”? (We'd love to hear your why in the comments below!)

2. What are your absolute must have features and deal breakers when buying a house?

You’ll want to create a list that you can go by to make sure your top priorities are stuck to and you’re not left with buyer’s remorse after closing day has come and gone. Think about the things that can’t be changed such as location, square footage, lot size, etc).

3. You’re not just buying a house, you’re buying a lifestyle.

What lifestyle are you looking for? Is a fixer upper going to be the right fit or will you realize you don’t have time to fix up a house? Do you want to be on the water and have the peaceful views to come home to and finally have a place to keep your boat? What lifestyle do you picture when you picture owning a home?

Our experienced agents really dig into these with all of their buyers before they start house hunting so they can really get to the bottom of what their clients are looking for.
What is the big picture, what is the lifestyle and what do they need to make top priority to make that a reality?

Our agents want their buyers to sign their name on the dotted line with complete confidence on closing day and be excited for their new adventure, not wondering if they made the right decision.
