Drawing up your Dream Home
Finding Real Estate
After narrowing your property search down to a few potential neighborhoods that have the qualities you deem essential, it’s time to start planning out your dream home’s features. Hello, Pinterest!
Can you draw? Start by drawing out your desired style; the square footage, floors, bedrooms, bathrooms, backyard, and landscaping. Write down the things you absolutely can’t live without. Think about the things you can be a bit more flexible with.
Example: You won’t budge on anything less than 3 bedrooms but are willing to forgo an upgraded kitchen to offset the balance in lieu of the perfect house.

Home Buying Help
Have you settled on the features of your home and now it’s time to start thinking about other features and amenities that are important to you? Sometimes it’s difficult to prioritize everything that comes with home buying because there is so much to think about.

Some things you may want to consider include:
- Laundry room
- Sprinkler system
- Gym/exercise room
- Security system
It’s often overwhelming to think about the style and feel of your home when it comes to types of materials and finishes; ceiling height and type. Then you have to consider roofing, bathroom fixtures, and appliances. It helps to be as specific and detailed as possible when listing out the features of your dream home. It will save you a lot of time during your home search.
Keep an open mind. Just because a house was not built in the style you prefer or is a little bigger/smaller than you desire, take a chance and see it anyways. Unless you build it yourself, homes don’t come customized to you, however, you can always customize your home.
