If you are considering looking for a Windsor house in the near future, the goal as an agent is to make your house hunt as easy as possible. The last thing you need to be is overwhelmed and confused by the process. Looking for homes should be fun as well as informative. As long as you are organized, have a good idea of what you want and are working with a professional real estate agent, then you are on your way to home ownership!
Here are some ideas to make your house hunt easy!
1. Tell your agent what you are looking for. Let them know your price range, the style of home, how many bedrooms, what neighborhood and other must haves that you desire.
2. Pace yourself. Don’t try and cram as many showings as you can in one day. On average, see no more than six homes a day. After that, it gets overwhelming and confusing. Also, if you are interested in several towns, then limit yourself to one town per day to get the proper feel for the neighborhoods, shopping, traffic, schools, etc.
3. Let the agent be your chauffeur. While they are driving you from home to home, write down notes on each Windsor house you see and like. Make notes on the neighborhood, if they are close to work, school, shopping and entertainment. Also, this gives you time to ask questions about the community or any other issues that come up.
4. Remember that while you are working with an agent, you are in charge. If something is clearly not working out, like you don’t like a specific neighborhood, or you decided that you want a four bedroom house instead of a three bedroom, then let your agent know. You have every right to change your mind, so don’t be afraid to speak up.
