So you are preapproved and ready to begin your search. But how or where do you begin? There are a lot of homes out there and diving in without a guide can become overwhelming and confusing. A great agent will help you more accurately pinpoint homes that fit your criteria. The right home will meet all your important needs, and as many of your additional wants as possible. Some questions you might ask yourself include: What do I want my home to be close to? How much space do I need and why? Which is more critical: location or size? Would I be interested in a fixer-upper? How important is home value appreciation? Is neighborhood stability a priority? Would I be interested in a condo? What features and amenities do I want? Which do I really need?
