An Insider’s Guide to Spring Home Shopping
It can be hard to keep your eye on the ball during a busy spring market. There are so many communities inviting you to visit, so many sales being offered and so little time to do it all.
Use these 5 essential tips to stay in control throughout the home shopping process and make the smartest move for your family.
Choose a Top ThreeBy narrowing down your selection of potential new communities to a list of three, you will be best equipped to weigh and balance the benefits of each.
This broad level of identification is vital because, once you identify the community of your choice, you’ll likely still need to pick from multiple builders, home types and designs along the way. By limiting your comparison to three communities at a time, you’ll be able to take a closer look at each.
If you’re struggling to narrow down your selection of potential new communities to three primary contenders, you should take a closer look at your priorities and motivations for the move.
Get Hands-OnThe best part about spring home shopping is the enjoyable weather. It’s the absolute best time to get out and visit the different communities you have identified an interest in. You’ll have the chance to experience any outdoor amenities the community offers and gauge the energy of the community.
If you’re looking for a new home for your growing family, check and see if there are children out and about, riding bikes and having fun.
Is the Grass Greener?Another key insight you can glean while visiting is to gauge the environment. Spring is the time for a community to shine bright, especially if it has features like lakes, playing fields and nature trails, like BeechTree does.
As you tour communities, pay close attention to how the homes and neighborhoods complement the nature that surrounds them. You’ll want to find a place that values natural elements and amenities just as much as you do.
Partner UpThe more you’re in the know, the better chance you have of getting the best deal. Partnering up with the right real estate professional is vital if you want to be successfully prepared to choose the right home, right community and right price for you.
Find an agent who specializes in the type of home you’re looking for, whether that’s new construction or resale. Choose one that you get along with and can communicate with effectively. And make sure he or she has experience in the area you’re searching.
