Thursday Thoughts: Neighborhood First, Home Second
Buying a home can be such an emotional experience. It's a big purchase. It's a new start.
One way you can eliminate some of the emotional struggle is by making sure you like the neighborhood or area--even down to the specific streets--before going into a home to tour. If you don't like the area, then there is no reason to tour homes there. It can be such an internal struggle to go into a home and love it, but totally dislike the neighborhood or area that it is in. We can change fixtures, tile, wall color and more, but we can't change it's location.
Shop the neighborhood and its streets first, then let's tour homes!Falling in love with a home in a neighborhood you don't want to live in is one emotional struggle you don't want to have!
