Quick Checklist For Finding The Perfect Home | Wilmington NC real estate

Wilmington NC

 Wilmington NC –

Zeroing in on your first home can be fun and exciting. But it can also be tiring and confusing. So before you start looking at properties, write down what you want in your new home. Start with the size of the home, number of rooms, most convenient layout, and desirable features. Prioritize the list, noting beside each item whether it is “nice to have” or “a must.”

Plan for the foreseeable future 
As you make the list, consider how long you will likely be in the home and how your family and lifestyle may change over time.

Keep your goals in mind
Bring the completed list with you when we plan the first home-shopping tour.

Be a comparison shopper
As you preview each property, jot down how it compares with your list. Fill in the blanks as you see fit–yes/no, good/fair/poor, etc. Keep your notes on each property to compare homes until you find the right home. Also note the features you would like to change in each home.
