Every purchase of a home
involves a certain amount of compromise. When you are working with a Realtor, it
is important that you give your agent a clear idea which of your criteria are
flexible and which items you really must have in your new home.
If you prefer a specific location, for example,
discuss why you want to live in that neighborhood. The agent might be able to
suggest alternatives areas which offer the same amenities or convenience to your
office. How important is size? Do you really need four bedrooms or would three
bedrooms work, if there is a den for your home office? How much are you willing
to correct with redecorating or remodeling? Are you willing to expand your price
range by using an adjustable rate mortgage to increase your buying power?
We ask buyers a lot of questions so that we can
use their time most efficiently and show them only houses that are real
possibilities for them.
