Once you’ve put your own home on the market, remembering these specific home staging tips for the winter months, you’ll likely begin looking for a new home. It’s easy to get carried away with certain aspects of a new property and forget some of those aspects which are truly needed, however, with the help of Home Key Title & Closing, Inc. you can be sure you have a list of the most important tips you’ll need to find the right home for you and your family.
Make a List of Priorities
By priorities, we mean the things you actually need the home to have. If you’ve got a big family and are wanting each family member to have his or her own space, for example, look for a home with the correct number of rooms and bathrooms. However, don’t get too carried away with the wants. This is not to say you shouldn’t have what you want in a home, but be careful not to focus too much on those desires and end up lacking something you actually need.
Dare to Compare
While you’re on the hunt for a new home, make sure that you take notes to compare the places you’ve seen. After having seen a few houses, take the time to reevaluate your notes, compare, and eliminate homes that you are the least excited about, or that do not meet all of your expectations.
When you do a walkthrough of the home, you should actually do it at least twice. Once you’ll want to walk through and simply take in the sties. The second walkthrough should be more critical. During the second walkthrough you should think of those aspects which stand out as unacceptable. Can you work with them?
Look Under, Look In, Look Behind
On the second walkthrough, with the permission of the current owners if someone is still living in the home, make sure that you look under rugs, look in cabinets and closets, as well as behind the refrigerator and other large appliances or pieces of furniture. The purpose of this, though it may seem a bit strange, is to ensure that you have no surprises on moving day. You want to be sure that nothing is being hidden behind or under those places you wouldn’t necessarily think to look otherwise.
Lastly, you’re going to want to envision your family in the home. Picture your daily life in this property. Does it fit your family lifestyle? Can you see yourselves being here for multiple years, growing together? If you’ve found the home that fits your requirements, and hopefully has some of those not so needed desires as well, remember the last steps in ensuring your new investment is ultimately protected.
