HomeShoppers:  There is great value in the ones you hate

 

Some buyers begin the process thinking they know exactly what they want. But sometimes, their must haves don't match their budget or what a neighborhood typically offers so they need to start anew.

 

Other buyers have no idea in the world what they are looking for and want to see it all. To be openminded is definitely a good thing but, in order for the homeshopping outings to make sense and begin to take shape, our immediate goal is to zero in on a particular part of town before we can narrow it down to a residence.

 

Last weekend, you toured 5 homes and you didn't like a single one! This is not a waste of time. Do not despair.

 

Consider this:

 

It's only when we know what we absolutely don't want that we can begin to articulate what makes us happy. It's a lot like life.

 

It's only when we know what we're not that we can finally understand what we are. And that takes time.

 

It's easy to be fooled by a house that is all fixed up and move in ready. Those are easy to like. But is it really the location, the layout, the price you need? Or will it all be a big mistake?

 

Homes that aren't so pretty can force us to look past their veneer and concentrate on their assets which will vary with the individual. How will that location work for you? Parking spaces? Guest bedroom? Pets allowed?

 

Do not be discouraged by the homes you hate. They mean the most when your're at the information gathering stage of the homebuying process. Everybody starts at the same place.

 

This is a huge undertaking that should not be rushed. Time and patience will yield the decision that is right for you.
