What Would You Change?
Posted by semoninblog
Purchasing a home is a big deal. And a stressful one. And it’s exciting and exhilarating and emotional. So after your emotions have settled and after you have settled into your home, tell me – what would you have done differently if you could have a home-purchase do-over? It could have something to do with searching for a home or your “want” and “need” list. It may be a Realtor® who wasn’t the right fit for you. Perhaps it’s the moving process – your movers (or your friends), boxing up all your possessions, or unpacking them.
For me, it was one small thing left out of my “want” list. You see, my Realtor® was amazing. He was kind-hearted, compassionate, patient, and fought for us to get what we wanted. He listened to what we wanted & was exceptionally responsive. On my “want” list, though, I didn’t consider writing that I wanted some land. Not a lot, though that would have been fine – just more than what I ended up purchasing with the house. If I could do it over, I would include a wee bit of acreage as a must in my home search.
How about you? What would you change in your home buying experience?
