The Ultimate House Hunting Guide

by terresteinbeck RODEO REALTY

I know what you’re feeling. I’m aware of that burning desire to buy a new house. You’ve got an irresistible impulse to jump right into the sedan or zoom through the internet. Yes, you’re going on a house hunt! Great! House hunting can be one of life’s more exhilarating and fulfilling experiences. Especially when you’re sufficiently equipped with abundant patience and a savvy Realtor guiding you across the real estate landscape.  But along with these essentials, you must bring one other element to the mix – preparation. With that in mind, here are four ways to be rip-roarin’ ready for an L.A. home search.

Location. Click your heels together and say the word ‘location’ three times. That about sums it up. But we’re not talking just about a paradise of lush greenery and gorgeous cityscapes. You need to think about travel distance to your workplace, schools, and the all-important shopping center. Unless you have a hankering for frequent road trips.

The Must-Haves. Compile a list of home features you absolutely MUST HAVE. This is crucial, especially if you’re married, and more especially if there are children in the family package. Everyone has particular wants and needs, right? And it’s far better to hold you public debates about such matters before you select a dream home. By then, you’re stuck with what you have.

Dig Deep. Once upon a time, you couldn’t learn much more about a home except its address and  listing price. Who could blame buyers for being in the dark about such things as market trends and neighborhood stats?  But the info-revolution is well underway, and ignorance no longer is a valid excuse. So jump right into the web and click your way to supreme real estate enlightenment.

If you’d like more info about launching a house hunt, feel free to reach out to me.  Or just fire your questions or comments into the box below. There’s always a vacancy.
