Buyers who are on the prowl for their dream home may be wondering how they will know once they’ve found “the one.” Looking through available Wesley Chapel homes for sale may be a solution. Although most of it is about trusting your gut, there are a few other signs you can keep your eyes peeled for, including these:
You’re planning how to decorate each room.
If you visually start mapping out where your furniture will be in each room as you walk through the home, this could be a sign you’re in your dream house. Homebuyers don’t think about where to put the coffee table or how to arrange the family photos unless they’ve already fallen in love with a home, so if you find yourself pinning living room design images to your Pinterest with this house in mind, you may have found the one.
You can’t stop thinking about it.
When you fall in love with someone, you tend to think about that person nonstop, and the same can be said for when you fall in love with a home. If you find yourself going to other listing appointments and not paying any attention to the details of the home because you can’t get your mind off of the first house, you may have found your dream home. You might even start to compare features to the other home, pointing out “well the first home had bigger closets” or “the first home had a two car garage.” These are all signs that you may be ready to make an offer on your dream home.
It brings you back.
Buyers can often fall in love with a home because of the way it makes them feel. For example, the home may have a beautiful white swing on the porch that reminds you of rocking back and forth with your grandmother on the porch of your childhood home. These memories comfort you and instantly make you feel at home. Although it’s wonderful to find a home that has this kind of power over you, make sure to thoroughly check out other parts of the property besides the ones that make you feel emotional.
You never want to leave.
After your agent has walked you through every nook and cranny of the home, do you find yourself lingering around, trying to find other questions to ask just so you can stay for one second longer? This is definitely a sign that you have found your dream home. But, do not make a decision during your first walk through. It’s wise to sleep on it for a night or two, come back for a second walk through with a friend or family member, and then decide whether to make an offer on the house. During the first walk through, buyers always have rose colored glasses on, so the second walk through helps them come back to reality and see the house for what is really is before they make a decision.
