Putting Your Life on Hold During Home Search

by Mike Yeo on February 23, 2011

This statement may seem far fetch – putting the rest of your life on hold while you search for your home, but for those I have seen experienced, when they put their home search first priority above all else for a short period of time has always been the most successful and the least disappointed.

I know you have soccer practices to run to, you have social parties you have to attend, and you might have a meeting that has to be cut short, but if you are like most buyers in today’s market, you want a good deal for your home. No one wants to pay more than they have to. Most good deals – move-in ready condition with great price do not stay on the market very long no matter the price range.

Put home buying a super high priority in your life. Be ready to write a good contract when you see one. Get your supporting documents ready for your lender. You might temporarily suspend your social life. Put home search very high on the list. I promise that you will not be disappointed with the outcome.

You are going to live in the house for a few years. Some early sacrifices and a small change in lifestyle are ways I see “investing” in the home that house your happy family. During this stressful period, making your home search a high priority will be worth while.
