Buying a home is one of the biggest purchases we will ever make. While it’s wise to come into the search process with an open-mind, it’s also important to bring with you a healthy dose of level-headedness because knowing when to trust your gut can be just as important as other “hard” factors when it comes to making a home decision.
Fortunately, there are other clues to help guide you toward (and steer you away from) your perfect home, and many of those initial clues can be found by taking a closer look at the real estate listing. For many of us, we begin our search online and then narrow down a selection of homes we’d like to tour in person. There can be nothing more frustrating to a home buyer than picking a home you like online, take time off of work to go see it, drive out of your way, only to be greatly disappointed when you see it in person. Here are some tips for knowing how to read a listing to help get you closer to the right match right from the start.
What to look for in a real estate listing
As with research you do before you buy anything, it’s important to learn to read between the lines. Home listings can be notoriously tricky, especially if you’re new to an area.
