Finding Your Dream Home Should Be Fun. Make a List and Check It Twice

It's no secret that buying a home is one of the biggest decisions in life. That doesn't mean it has to be the most stressful, and you certainly don't have to settle. While it's important to have an experienced team behind you, I believe that knowing exactly what you want can also help the process. Finding your dream home should be fun!




The easiest way to do this is simply by listing out what you want in your new home and prioritizing those desires. So, begin with the features of a new home that you just can't live without. Then list out nine more features and rank each from most important to least important. Here are examples of what your list could include:

 â€¢  Location/Neighborhood
 â€¢  School District
 â€¢  # Bedrooms
 â€¢  # Bathrooms
 â€¢  Screened-In Porch
 â€¢  Lot size
 â€¢  Appliances
 â€¢  Countertops
 â€¢  Bike/Walk Friendly
 â€¢  Distance from _______
 â€¢  Walk-In Closet
 â€¢  Office
 â€¢  Master Bedroom on First Floor
 â€¢  Open Floor Plan
 â€¢  Large Kitchen with Double Oven
 â€¢  Tall Ceilings

Now that you have your prioritized list, you can use it to rate each house that you view. Tally up how many check marks each house has and decide what items you can sacrifice to get the ones you truly want.

Don't stress; there's a house out there just for you. So make your list, check it twice, and you'll see that finding your dream home is fun!

Let me help you create the life you love. Let's chat today!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Just Enjoy the Holidays!
Hi Friends, Are you ready for the upcoming holidays? I can report my tree is up, two large wreaths hang on my garage and I have manage to pick up a few gifts, but none are wrapped. It seems the general consensus is—this has been a difficult year for many. Weather your dealing with health issues, time or money issues, I hope you at least try to enjoy a little YOU time. Eat a holiday cookie, watch a Hallmark movie, listen to Christmas music or just sit in your vehicle and take a moment to just breath. Whatever it takes to slow down, get through this year and tell it to kiss your—ok so maybe I just wanted to see if your really reading this. Anyway, my message is—enjoy what you can and leave the rest behind. Here’s wishing you a Great Holiday Season, filled with laughter, good memories and Peace. All my best—-Always, Donna Oh and thanks—each and everyone of you for allowing me to be your REALTOR. I am truly Blessed because of you. Merry Christmas Friends
