Make your list and check it twice
FRIDAY, MAY 18, 2012

Knowing yourself and your priorities is a too-often overlooked piece of the exciting, multi-layered process of buying a home. If you are venturing into the home buying experience for the first time, or the first time in a long time, remember that this process requires more than an “I’ll know it when I see it” attitude. Finding the perfect Austin home for you and your family is like comparing apples and oranges—there are too many distinct variables to consider.

An article in U.S. News & World Report offers a list of broad-scope considerations some buyers don’t think to ask their REALTOR® about, such as remodeling restrictions. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has compiled a list to help each member of the family decide which features of a potential home top his/her priorities. This handy worksheet can make conversations more effective and efficient as a family is beginning their house-hunt.

Always direct any questions to your industry expert—your Central Texas REALTOR® is there to help you find the very best home for you and your family. In need of an advocate? Find a REALTOR® on AustinHomeSearch.com.
