How can anyone, make the wisest, personal decision, in terms of, buying, the right home, for them, if, they don’t begin, with a clear understanding, and appreciation of what, they NEED? Since, for most people, the value of their house, represents their single – biggest, financial asset, doesn’t it make sense, to identify, what one needs, desires, and has, as a significant priority, in order, to proceed, wisely? Remember, what one buyer needs, often, differs, from another, and, so, it’s important to fully consider, in an objective way, before making such an important personal decision! With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and is, such an essential, relevant issue/ consideration.
1. Needs; neighborhood: How will you know your personal needs? Will you take the time, to give yourself, a checkup from the neck – up. in order to know, what you truly want, and need, and, whether, a particular house, serves your purposes? Consider, closely, the specific neighborhood, evaluating the specific block and neighbors, safety – related issues, quality of education/ schools, convenience to transportation, shopping and other conveniences, etc. Will you be happy, living there?
2. Energy; emphasis: You should gain energy, and pride, from your home, if it’s the right one, for you! Which features, do you believe, are most significant, and where will you place, most of your personal emphasis?
3. Education; excellence: Research, carefully, the local school system, whether you have children, or not! Obviously, if you do, this is important, because you want your family to take advantage of the finest opportunities, etc, but, even if you do not, and don’t, even, plan one, realize, your property values, often, are directly related, to the actual, and perceived, quality of your local school system. Seek genuine excellence, rather than good – enough, because if you settle, at the beginning, you will endanger making the best, possible decision, into the future!
4. Delve deeply; desires; dreams: Why do you believe, you desire a particular house? What, specifically, is it, which attracts you? Will you serve your needs, properly, by delving deeply, into any, and all relevant aspects, regarding a specific property? How will you be certain, the home of your dreams, does not bring you nightmares?
When you start searching, for a house, closely consider, what you, specifically, believe you NEED! It’s an important decision, and consideration, so act wisely!
