How do you find your dream home?

OK, so how do you find your dream home?

You’re looking to buy a home — what an exciting time.

The best strategy here is to creatively combine the practical and emotional components of your home search.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Know yourself: spend enough time thinking and brainstorming about what your want, and what your dream home is like.
  2. Identify your priorities: what features are must-haves and where can you compromise?
  3. Be realistic: what price range can you afford? Use my Debt-to-Income Calculator.
  4. Trust your intuition: do you enjoy driving through this neighborhood? When you walk into the house, do you feel its vibe?
  5. Use your imagination: try to see beyond the imperfections that can be easily fixed, such as a mess in the house or walls that need a fresh coat of paint.
