Of course there is something you must do before you can even hope to save thousands when buying a home in Ocala. You must have purchasing clarity to know exactly what you want. Using that as a foundation, you can begin building a strategy to help you get the home you want at a great price.
1. Know The Type of House You Want to Purchase
A key first step in getting purchase clarity is figuring out what you want. This is more than just a vague idea of what you would like in a home. It is specific measurable features that you want when you purchase. It is also something written down, preferably in a definable list.
This will help move you from just dreaming to actually listing out what you need and what you want. Believe it or not this process will reduce your stress. It will help you adjust your focus as well as simplify a complicated process.
Whatever you do, start building the list of what you want in your home. Do not skip this step as this can really help you manage expectations.
First things first, you need to know the basic features of your home. Here are some questions to ask yourself immediately:
- How many bedrooms do I need?
- How many bathrooms do I need?
- What is the minimum square feet I would be comfortable with?
- Do I want a single-family home, townhome, or a condominium?
- Do I want stairs or a single level home?
- Do I need a garage and if so 1 or 2 car?
- Do I need a basement or attic?
If you can answer these questions, you are already starting to carve out the criteria you need to get the right home.
2. Be Clear On What Is Important In Your Next Home
Part of purchase clarity is prioritizing what you need. There are things you want in your home and there are things you NEED in your next home. You have been working up a list of some basics already. Now you want to start getting into more specific details beyond simple functional choices like number of rooms. This is not just dreaming. This is a process of thinking about how you will use the house. This will give you even more clarity as to what house is right for you.
Review these and questions and ask yourself:
- How long will I be in this house?
- Do you plan to entertain in the house?
- Do you cook a lot or is that not as important?
- How many people will be living in the house?
- Do I want more natural light?
These are just a few of the questions you can ask yourself but you get the idea.
