Where are all my Type-A friends? No shame, I'm right there with you!
If you live for the feeling of being organized, I've compiled my 5 best pieces of advice for staying orderly during your home search:
First up: Create a digital or physical folder for all of your important documents. This can include pre-approval letters, listings you're interested in, and any other important papers.
Number 2 - Keep track of your budget. Determine how much you can afford and stick to it – this will save you time, energy, and heartache in the long run. Trust me!
Third - Make a list of your must-haves and nice-to-haves. This will help you prioritize what's important to you in a home. Use a shareable document or list if you’re buying with a significant other so you stay on the same page
Next, Keep track of the homes you've seen. Create a spreadsheet or use a note-taking app to jot down the pros and cons of each home. This will come in handy when all the home features start to blur together
Last - This step is super important. Take lots of pictures! You'll want to remember the details of each home, so pictures will be key.
Implement these tips, and you'll be on your way to finding your perfect home. Happy hunting!
