Determine your Needs and Wants


There are a variety of options for homes on the market today.

  • To help narrow your search, take some time to brainstorm a list of items you would like to have in a home.
  • Then take that list and sort it into needs and wants. Needs are critical items and wants are the items that would be a cherry on top.
  • Finally, further refine your list to order the needs and wants from most important to least important.
  • This step can take some time, but it helps me find the right homes for you and will help you make a possible tough decision between a couple of great homes when compared side by side.

    Some sample items to include in your list:

    • Area – try and narrow it down to a specific geographic location or two to make your decision easier
    • School preference (if any)
    • Number of bedrooms
    • Number of baths
    • Yard size
    • Garage size, or maybe no garage
    • Pool
