idaho homes for saleJust getting started looking for a home can be the biggest challenge! We always recommend starting as far out from the actual time you’ll need to be moving as possible, which will remove a lot of the pressure to be in a rush, but there are plenty of other things to consider before jumping into home buying.

Now, we know there’s plenty of places to get advice on how to go about this – mom, dad, friends, and every other person you know – but we’re taking a different approach by presenting tips from REALTORS® themselves on how to start your home search the right way.

Work with a good agent
That’s a no brainer – especially coming from an agent! But truly, the agent you choose can greatly impact how successful, or stressful, your transaction process will be. First and foremost pick an agent that’s qualified and has knowledge of the industry – beyond that make sure their personality is a good fit for you and that they can provide the help you’ll need along the way.

Get out from behind the screen
A picture is worth a thousand words and it’s easy to view thousands and thousands of homes online without ever having to leave your home – but that’s the problem. Even if the seller is honest and hasn’t doctored photos or shot from angles to only show the good parts of the house you can only tell so much from pictures on the web. Find the homes you might like online, make a list, and then make some time to visit them with your agent.

Meet the neighbors
If at all possible meet the neighbors while you are checking the house out as they will be YOUR neighbors when the house becomes yours. Having neighbors you can at least tolerate will make the time in your home much more harmonious. If nothing else at least spend some extra time, maybe walking around the neighborhood, to get a feel for the community.

Compromise where you can – Hold firm everywhere else
Sometimes perfection doesn’t look like what you expect. To get the best location you may have to compromise on features or other elements – and that’s OK. Just make sure you know what items are able to be budged on and what items are deal breakers. Basement unfinished? That’s a compromise you can do. Electrical plugs in the shower, not so much.

There are any number of things to think about when you’re out there searching for the perfect place – it can really be a jungle! But you don’t have to navigate it alone – our team of professional agents would love the opportunity to help you find your dream home. Get started by seeing what’s available on our Idaho homes website!
