Three Ranch Colony House Hunting Tips

Filed in What's Hot? by on March 20, 2017

House hunting is one of the most exciting, and most stressful activities a person can experience. While there is no way to prepare for every unexpected twist and turn in the house-hunting process, there are some things you can do to make your Ranch Colony home search easier. Here are three tips to make the most of your house-hunting.

House Hunting Tips

1. Make a checklist of your needs and wants.

It’s easy to fall in love with the first home you visit, whether you are a veteran or first-time home buyer. Especially when you are looking at Jupiter real estate in a community as spacious and beautiful as the homes you’ll find in the communities of Ranch Colony. If you have a clearly defined list of your priorities, it’s much less likely that you’ll be swayed by homes that don’t meet your needs. Along with major points, like cost and size, consider things like how much storage space you’ll need, maintenance needs and accommodations for pets.

2. Take notes

Once you start visiting homes, make sure to bring along a notepad so that you can jot down reminders and sketches. If appropriate, take photos and save them along with your notes for easy reference. Especially if you are touring multiple homes, it’s helpful to have information on each home available so that you don’t forget anything important.

3. Focus on more than the “wrapping”

A fresh coat of paint and sparkling new appliances are pretty to look at, but they can also mask underlying issues within the house. Many major issues will be found during the course of a home inspection, but it will still save you time to be on the lookout for signs of leaks, pests and other potentially costly concerns. Don’t be so focused the small issues (a fridge can always be replaced) that you overlook major concerns.
