Creating Your Wish List
To help you choose the best real estate professional to represent you in the home buying process, it is important to understand what your personal objectives are, so you can present these to prospective agents and evaluate their ability to help you meet your goals.
One of your primary objectives will be to secure a home that will meet the needs of your family. Here are a few things to consider:
What is important to you? Proximity to employment? Proximity to schools? Is shopping or public transportation important? Do you prefer the peace and quiet of a rural or suburban community or the hustle and bustle of city life? Who are “your people” and where do they live?
Are schools an important consideration for your family? What do you want? Diversity? Proximity? Excellent testing scores?
How Long Will You Live In This House?
