Moving can be an exciting time of transition that ripples change into every area of your life. It can feel both exhilarating and overwhelming when making the decision to take a leap and buy a house. Gaining clarity about what you want your life to look like in the next chapter is an important first step in achieving success.
HOW TO GAIN CLARITY
Get Your Financial House in Order
Keep in mind you’ll have other expenses like closing costs, real estate taxes and insurance, and some utilities you may be use to the landlord paying. Don’t panic, it can all be factored in. You can do this.
Establish Your Needs & Wants List
Whether you are up-leveling to your second, third, or fourth home — or it’s your very first time — think about what’s motivating you to want to buy. What areas of your current home cause you to be frustrated, uninspired, or uncomfortable? What layout will work best for you and your co-habitants? What level of the home do you want what bedrooms? What do you wish you had more storage for? Take inventory of your belongings and what and who is coming with you to your new casa.
Create Anchor Points
If you do some of this inner work before we meet, we can quickly help you navigate the city and its diverse neighborhoods. Your time is valuable to us and while the home hunt can be fun, with some upfront work you can be chilling on your new porch in no time.
