9 Signs You've Found the Perfect Home for Your Family

Perfect Home for Your Family

Buying a home is a big decision that can feel overwhelming. But when you've found the home that's right for you, you'll want to recognize this fact and prepare to make an offer.

Our real estate agents share the following 9 signs that you've found the right home for you and your family.

  1. It Makes You Feel Happy
    You've probably viewed plenty of other homes for sale in the area! Even if you've looked at a lot of other homes, this one will be an instant standout. It should make you feel happy when you visit it, and you should be able to picture yourself in the home, having fun or relaxing.

  2. It Has All of Your Needs and Most of Your Wants
    This home should check a lot of your boxes for what you're looking for in a house. It should meet all your requirements, such as a minimum number of bedrooms and bathrooms and a desirable location, and most of your preferred amenities, such as a fireplace or a big backyard.

  3. You're Already Mentally Moving into the Home
    If you're starting to think about where you could hang your art and how you'd love to put a swing in the yard, you're already starting to claim the home as your own.

  4. You Don't Want to Look at Other Homes
    When you first started looking at homes, the idea of visiting them was probably exciting. But if you are feeling like you found the right home already, you may not want to look at other homes. Even if you visit a few, you'll find yourself comparing them unfavorably.

  5. You Can't Wait to Tell Your Friends and Family About it
    You'll be so excited to tell your friends and family all the details about this home. You'll find yourself gushing about the home - "It has huge closets! The kitchen is fantastic!" - and wish they could see it with you.

  6. You Worry Someone Else Will Buy it 
    You'll get so caught up in the idea of this home being right for you that the idea of anyone else making an offer on it is upsetting. In your mind, it's already your home, so you may be ready to talk to your real estate agent about making an offer of your own.

  7. You Minimize Any Flaws
    A real estate agent should mention any possible flaws with the home, and instead of being deterred by them, they don't bother you. You'll plan to make any necessary changes or will be interested in checking if the seller will make the changes needed or will pay for them. 

  8. It's Within Your Budget
    Don't forget to keep your budget in mind! Finding a home you love that costs more than you've budgeted can lead to anxiety and buyer's remorse.

  9. The Location is Right for You
    Location is all-important when it comes to real estate, so the perfect home for your family will be in the type of area you'd like to live in. The home should be in the type of area you're glad to come home to and all members of your family will enjoy.
