3 Tips for Finding Your Ideal New Home- The Perfect Fit

Moving to a new city is exciting – new  sights, new sounds, maybe even a new job. Let’s not forget, however, one of the largest tasks when it comes to relocating: finding a new home. House searching can seem daunting, but not if you’re equipped with the right mindset and tools. To get you on track, we’re sharing a few home-buying tips:

Know what you want. When you’re in the market for a new home, it’s easy to get swept away with Pinterest boards full of “must-haves” and dream décor but it’s important to be realistic with yourself. Your new home should be conducive to your personality and daily lifestyle; if you’re an avid at-home cook, prioritize a large kitchen. Being able to articulate what you want and need will help your REALTOR find exactly what you’re looking for.

Do your research. Oh, the beauty of the Internet! Before you begin booking appointments to check out new living spaces, be sure to do a quick search of the area. This will allow you to pinpoint a few neighborhoods that intrigue you. Is it the beautiful beaches and boardwalk in Parksville, the beautiful community of Nanoose Bay, or possibly the quaint easy life style of Qualicum Beach that you like? Want to be close to schools, in more family neighborhoods, or near walking trails with properties with bigger acreages? – and don’t forget to keep your price point in mind when searching!

Project the future. Avoid narrowing your focus on solely the here and now; a home is a great investment, and you want to treat it as such. Thinking about where you may be in five to ten years will help you pick a home that can grow with you, both in your career and your family.
