Shopping for a home can be difficult. After all, buying a home is likely to be one of the biggest financial decisions you make in your lifetime. Therefore, you will want to do your due diligence to ensure you are making the right one. A measured building survey can help with the decision-making process. While some might make decisions based on their gut instincts, everyone is different when it comes to their decision-making process. Here are some indicators you can use to help you figure out whether or not you’ve found the right property.
The House Speaks to You
You should know within the first few seconds as to whether or not the house feels comfortable to be in. Having a house speak to you and embrace you is a major indicator you’ve found ‘the one.’ If the house feels like you’re home as soon as you enter, it’s likely the one you should choose.
The Bathroom Doesn’t Feel Awkward
A lot of the time you will find a prospective home buyer feels uncomfortable near a bathroom in a home. They will refuse to walk in and instead they will continue to stand outside of it. If you walk inside of the bathroom and you begin to find yourself admiring it, you might have found the right house.
You Envision Your Own Furniture and Living Space
If you walk into the master bedroom and you can immediately begin to see yourself laying on your bed in it, you might have found the right house. If you are already thinking about where to hang your television or where to place your Christmas tree, you are already hooked. Likewise, if you begin to think about driving home and seeing your neighbours throwing a Frisbee to their dog and inviting them over for dinner, it’s likely the home you should be considering.
It Ticks All of Your Important Boxes
Virtually no home is going to have everything you absolutely want in a home. After all, you might not even get that if you build it yourself. However, the home needs to meet your must-have and basic requirements. There are certain things you will absolutely need the home to have – for instance, the right number of rooms, the available living space, and more. Maybe it doesn’t have a garage, but you could always add one if you absolutely needed it. If you find yourself thinking of reasons to be flexible, you might have found the house you are looking for as you talk yourself into it.
You Want to Stop Looking for Other Homes
If you begin to find yourself wanting to stop looking at other homes because they don’t appeal to you anymore, you might have found the right one. You begin to compare each and every new property to it. The previous homes you might have liked have fallen on your list of prospective homes.
You are Excited About Bragging About It
Did you already find yourself posting pictures of the house on social media? Did you text your friends and family about finding it? You may have legitimately found the right house if you are showcasing this type of excitement about it.
