There are thousands of properties out there, but you’re just looking for one.
So stop window shopping and start getting real about what it’s going to take to get into a new place. That means (ideally) starting your home search a couple months before you actually need to move, connecting with a professional who knows the market and it willing to teach you the strategies to be a more informed buyer. Build your list of must-haves and deal breakers. Understand the differences between a strong offer and a weak one. Get your finances in check so you can shop confidently, not with your fingers crossed.
The more you know, the better positioned you'll be to make decisions based on what you truly want - not on a time crunch or money concerns.
