Finding the right house that meets your family's needs is an important decision; it's one that can affect the quality of your life for years to come. That's why it's especially important to be in a focused, resourceful state of mind when house hunting. It's also helpful to have a clear idea of what you're looking for and have a system in mind for comparing the strengths and weaknesses of every house you visit.

Knowing What You Want

Chances are, you're going to approach your house search with some preconceived notions about features like the floorplan, bedrooms, and number of bathrooms. You may also have strong preferences for a particular school district, the size of the back yard, and proximity to neighbors. One thing's for sure: There are a lot of details on which you'll need to concentrate as you meet with your real estate agent and visit different homes for sale. While conditions are not always ideal for taking it all in, here are a few tips which may help you get the most from the experience.

  • Work from a checklist: Before plunging into a serious house-hunting campaign, it's a good idea to prioritize the features and characteristics you're looking for in a new home. Ideally, you should have a separate copy of the list for each home you visit and create a simple rating system for evaluating how well each property lives up to your expectations. Make note of your impressions and take a few photos of key rooms, such as the kitchen, master bathroom, or whatever areas are most important to you. As a courtesy, ask the real estate agent if they or the homeowner would mind if you took some pictures.
  • Arrange childcare if possible: When you're going over important details with your real estate agent or visiting a listed house for the first time, you'll be able to get more out of the experience if you can devote your full attention to it. Children, especially young ones, tend to be more focused on their own agenda, including hunger, boredom, sibling conflicts, and the impulse to wander off on their own to explore unchartered territory! When the opportunity arises to check out a potential new home, you'll want to have 100 percent of your mental and emotional resources available to appreciate and absorb all the details, nuances, and possibilities of a house that's for sale. Since "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry", it won't always be feasible to arrange alternative (and sometimes last minute) childcare plans for your little ones. When it is possible though, you'll have more of your wits about you for the important task at hand.
  • While it's unrealistic to always expect house hunting to go smoothly and without a hitch, a focused and organized approach to finding the home of your dreams will always yield the best results!
     


    A condo can be a great resource in expanding your property search for a home. Condos allow the same benefits of traditional single family home ownership with slightly less hassle. If you have been juggling the idea of buying a condo versus a traditional home, you may be in luck. The first thing you should worry about is whether or not your needs will actually be met by condo living. Do you want a big yard? Are you comfortable having neighbors super close by? Most importantly, you need to make an informed decision that will help you to find the kind of property that’s right for you.


    The Advantages


    If you want a secure space and living that provides you with easy upkeep, a condo is really a great option. Condos provide many advantages that people may have not even thought of until now. 


    Great Amenities


    Condo living has different perks than that of traditional homes. Your condominium complex can include things like a swimming pool, a clubhouse, community events, tennis courts, fitness centers, and more. You won’t get all of these little extras living in a single family home. It can be a great environment for both single people and families alike.    


    Security


    Condos often offer either a gated community or security staff on the premises. These features allow you to feel a lot more secure in your home environment. Security will keep rowdy kids from roaming the property and only allow owners and their visitors. This feature alone may be worth it for many home buyers when shopping for a place to live.   


    No Maintenance


    If you’re the type of person who doesn’t enjoy yard work and is not a DIYer, condo living could be for you. Included with your condo fees is the ability to have different things in and around your home taken care of. Although the fees include different extras from place to place, Living in a condo is definitely less work as far as home care goes than a traditional house.


    Price


    Although condos do include additional fees, the price point of most condos is much lower than that of a traditional home. If you are just starting out, a condo is a great way to ease into homeownership without needing to save up an exorbitant amount of money for a downpayment.


    The Disadvantages


    While condo living has many different advantages, they do carry some disadvantages for people. These include:


    • HOA Fees
    • Lack of privacy
    • A difficult sell if you want to move
    • You live under management rules



    These points can be deal breakers for some buyers. While many relish their freedom from maintenance responsibility, others just want to do as they please with their yard without needing approval. A condo could be a great choice for you in your own situation, you just need to step back and look at the pros and cons.


    Let's face it – selling a home may prove to be a long, arduous process, particularly for those who are listing a residence for the first time. Fortunately, we're here to help you simplify the home selling journey and ensure you can enjoy a pleasant home selling experience.

    Now, let's take a look at three tips to make the home selling process quick and easy.

    1. Evaluate Housing Market Data

    The housing market frequently changes, and a seller's market today may transform into a buyer's market tomorrow. However, if you analyze housing market data, you can understand real estate segment trends and map out your home selling journey accordingly.

    Take a look at the prices of recently sold houses in your city or town. This information can help you differentiate between a buyer's and seller's market.

    Also, evaluate the prices of local houses that are similar to your own. This data will show you how your residence stacks up against the competition.

    2. Hire a Home Appraiser

    Although you might have received a great price for your house a few years ago, the value of your home likely has changed. As such, you should conduct a home appraisal to receive an accurate property valuation.

    A home appraiser will look at your house's exterior and interior, along with assorted housing market data. Then, this appraiser can provide you with a valuation of your property. And once you have a property valuation in hand, you can determine how to price your house.

    In addition, it often helps to complete a home inspection prior to listing your residence. Because if you perform a home inspection today, you can identify and correct any home problems that otherwise may slow down the home selling process.

    3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

    If you're unsure about where to find housing market data or how to hire a home appraiser, there's no need to worry. Real estate agents are available in cities and towns nationwide, and these housing market professionals will do whatever it takes to help you sell your house.

    A real estate agent is a housing market expert who is available to assist you in any way possible. For instance, if you need help pricing your house, a real estate agent can make it easy to establish a competitive initial asking price. Or, if you are debating whether to accept or reject a buyer's proposal, a real estate agent can help you make an informed decision.

    Let's not forget about the comprehensive support that a real estate agent provides in the days and weeks after you accept an offer, either. This housing market professional will keep you up to date about a home purchase agreement as closing day approaches. And if you ever have home selling concerns or questions, a real estate agent is happy to respond to them.

    Ready to list your residence? Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and you can increase the likelihood of a fast, simple home selling journey.
