Make a list before shopping

Real Estate

A good strategy used when shopping for real estate, is to make a list of the all features you would like to have.  With so many ways to shop and all sorts of videos, it is important to know exactly what you want.  This is a very important step. Knowing exactly what you are looking for gives you an edge over other buyers who may not. According to the National Realtor Association, we have less than six months housing inventory available.  This current inventory level can favor the seller, so make your move fast.

When you are considering what is important to you when looking for a home, being detailed is very helpful.  Here is an example:

"Must-Haves".  This list is of features that are required.  If a home does not have these features, they should not even be considered.  (ie. number of bedroom, bathrooms, location)
"Should-Haves" If the property has all of the above features, plus some of these features it should be left for consideration. The more the property has the better.
“Absolute Wish List" If the property is in budget, has all the "Must- Haves" and most of the "Should-Haves" and any of these features, it is a winner!
When you have compiled your lists you will have a very good idea of the type of home you are looking for.  While some people will want a bigger home, others are looking to downsize.  Do not forget to get a pre-qualification from a lender before you go shopping.  Because while shopping if you see a winner, you will be able to quickly act. A pre-qualification can make your purchase offer stronger in the eyes of the seller.

The housing inventory changes daily, which is why you need a full service real estate agent on your side.
