8 Tips for a Successful Property Search

Buying a home is one of the most important - and stressful - processes you'll ever go through. Here are 8 tips for starting that journey:

  1. Maintain an organized file of your search and comments on each property.
  2. Stay focused on your criteria--needs, desires, budget--as you look at homes.
  3. Keep the agent posted on your timeline and expectations. Let your agent know how many homes you hope to view and how much time you would like to spend in each session.
  4. Alert the agent to any homes that interest you, including any you find on your own.
  5. If you prefer to look around on your own, request a list of drive-bys, which you can view from the outside first. Your agent can arrange tours of those that appeal to you.
  6. If possible, leave youngsters with a sitter when you look at property so you can focus your attention on the houses.
  7. Let your buyer's agent know your opinion of each home and keep communication lines open.
  8. Let your agent know immediately when you have found a property you like and are ready to make an offer.
