No home is ever perfect! Don't let it hold you back.

No home is ever perfect! Today many buyers are searching for the perfect home, and holding off till they find it. Don't let it hold you back, because no home is ever perfect what ever the cost. Almost every multi-millionaire movie star or football player who buys a home for millions of dollars tears it apart making it just how they want it. If anyone can afford the perfect home it is these buyers and still they make changes because no home is ever perfect.

searching for the right home

Even buyers of new construction custom homes often make changes once they live in a home and see how it works, floor plans may give an appearance of working well, but it is only when you actually live there and use it that you find what does not work.

So when buying a home, be realistic about what you want. There are many things you can change easily, paint colors and landscaping, some things cost a little more, bathroom and kitchen upgrades and may even require to be done over time. Location, have some alternatives, different school districts or towns, side streets or cul de sacs, sidewalks or wide green edges to walk on, large yard or local park with easy access. The more choices you give your self the more choices of homes you will have and the better deal you can find. When you limit yourself to "the perfect home" you also limit your choices and will end up paying more.

Also in waiting for "the perfect home" many buyers miss great deals that would have met their needs and provided them the opportunity to begin building memories in that home, something you cannot buy and it does not come with the house, you can only create these as you live there.

So don't let hold back waiting for "the perfect home", be pro active, make a reasonable list of choices, share it with your Realtor/buyers agent and get ready to enjoy the hunt for your next home so you can start making those family memories.
