If you decide, it’s the right time, for you, to buy, a home, of your own, doesn’t it make sense, to proceed, in as wise, well – prepared, way, as possible? While many pursue, what, do most, is an essential component of the so – called, American Dream, many others, merely, proceed, in a predominantly, emotionally – focused, manner! In order to ensure, the greatest chance/ opportunity, to make this remain a dream, instead of a nightmare, the wisest home buyers, take the time, and make an effort, to PLAN, effectively, and thoroughly. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and, why it matters.
1. Priorities; perceptions; price; planning; properties: Give yourself a check – up, from the neck – up, and examine your personal reasons, for wanting to purchase a house, and, why, this specific one! Your personal perceptions, must align with your priorities, which should include, the quality of the house and property, location (specific, and regional/ area), the price you can afford (and are comfortable with), etc. Take the time, to thoroughly examine, and consider, all relevant factors anc considerations, with real planning. Align your needs, goals, priorities, principles, etc, in a way, which might help you, proceed, as wisely as possible!
2. Look; listen; learn: Know what you seek, need, and can afford, understand the real estate market, in your desired region/ area, and carefully look, at several possibilities, without being emotional! Listen carefully to the suggestions and recommendations of the real estate agent, you carefully hired and selected, and learn the best approach, throughout the entire process!
3. Attitude; attention; activities; aptitude; actions: Don’t let negative thinking, limit your possibilities! Proceed with a true, positive, can – do, attitude, and avoid over – reacting! Take the time, to pay keen attention, to numerous details, strengths and weaknesses, use all the smartest activities suggested (such as how much to pay/ offer, using a real estate professional, etc), and develop a relevant aptitude, and skill – set, so you are prepared and ready to take the wisest actions, in a well – considered, timely manner!
4. Needs: Know your specific needs, and let these, become your primary focus! Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses, but, do, what’s right, and, best, for you!
Don’t proceed haphazardly, but, rather, use a PLAN which makes buying a house, work best, for you! Will you protect your largest personal asset?
