The first and only way to begin the decision-makingprocess is to "put pen to paper" as my parents say. A dream home becomes a horrible nightmare the momentyou can't afford it. As you calculate, look beyond the listing price. Here’s why: A house with more than one story costs more to heat than a one story home. And a house with a pool meanspaying to maintain it. All these extra factors can add up.
That said, there's no such thing as a crystal ballwhen it comes to buying a house. And wondering whether the house will be toosmall if you have a party—or too big when the kids leave to start their lives—isinevitable. It's important to envision a home's role over time, making adecision with too many variables in mind can work against you. Buy the housefor the way you are living now. Then adapt as you go.Another tip? Decide based on how you live, not the place where you live. A house that offers dramatic lake views with enormous windows can seem like a wonderful place to call home. But if you're rarely home, the views will not be visible most of the time.
Focus on features that will please you indoors. This advice is particularlyapplicable to high-traffic parts of the house, such as the kitchen. A sleek,minimalist breakfast bar may make your heart skip a beat,but if you've got busy toddlers, a practical kitchen with lots of room anda lot of storage may be a better fit.When you do make a decision, should you makean offer right away? Would you be heart broken if you lost this house toanother buyer? If the answer is yes, make an offer. Seldom will you go wrong ifyou follow your heart.As always, if you are thinking of buying, selling ormaybe investing, I would love to help you throughout the process. 405.921.3164 Brittany Neumann
