Make a List and Check It Twice: Finding Your Dream Home Should Be Fun!

It's no secret that buying a home is one of the biggest decisions in life. But, that doesn't mean that it has to be the most stressful process you go through. And, it certainly doesn’t mean you should rush things or settle. 
While it's important to have an experienced Realtor behind you, I believe that knowing exactly what you want can also help the process. At the end of the day, finding your dream home should be fun. So, put on your red hat and turn up the Christmas playlist; it’s time to play home-shopping Santa!



The easiest way to do this is simply by listing out what you want in your new home and prioritizing those desires. So, begin with the features of a new home that you just can't live without. Then, list out nine more features and rank each from most important to least important. Here are examples of what your list could include:

 •  Location/Neighborhood
 •  School District
 •  # Bedrooms
 •  # Bathrooms
 •  Screened-In Porch
 •  Lot size
 •  Appliances
 •  Countertops
 •  Bike/Walk Friendly
 •  Distance from _______
 •  Walk-In Closet
 •  Office 
 •  Master Bedroom on First Floor 
 •  Open Floor Plan
 •  Large Kitchen with Double Oven 
 •  Tall Ceilings

With your Gardner tools and your priority checklist ready, you can accurately and confidently rate each house that you view. Tally up how many check marks each house has and decide what items can you sacrifice to get the ones you truly want.
