When it comes to purchasing a home, you will want to look for one that feels like the right fit for you. After looking at hundreds of homes online and dozens in person, it can be hard to know when you have found the house you should actually put an offer in on. Here are a few signs that will help you know that you have found a special house.
Makes a Good First Impression
When you pull up to a house for the first time, do you find yourself excited to go inside and see it? As you walk through the house, do you find yourself feeling comfortable or amazed and excited to see the rest of the house? The special house you should put an offer on is more than likely going to be one that made an excellent first impression on you, that left you with a positive feeling, and that didn't leave you feeling disappointed.
Bathroom Feels Comfortable
The bathroom is a space that you are going to use multiple times a day. When you find the right house for you, you will walk into the bathroom and feel comfortable. You will like the way it is situated and how it feels.
If the bathroom is set up in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, then you may not have found the right bathroom for you. It is easy to change things such as wall color and tile in a bathroom, but rearranging the layout can be expensive. If you are looking for a move-in ready home, you want the bathroom to feel comfortable, barring minor cosmetic modifications, from the start.
Can Envision Your Stuff in the Space
When you find a house that feels right, you will find yourself looking at rooms and thinking about where your stuff will go. If you stand in the living room and immediately start thinking about how your couch would look great on the north wall and your television on the east wall, you have found a home that speaks to you and that you feel comfortable with. Being able to envision your stuff in the space means that you can envision yourself in the space.
Meets Your Basic Requirements
Finally, the right home is going to meet your basic requirements. It will have the number of rooms that you want and the amount of space that you need. It will be located in the right neighborhood for school and work for you. It may not have everything you want in a home, but it meets enough of your requirements to be a good fit.
You will know you have found a home worth putting an offer in on when you find one that leaves you with a good impression from start to finish, where you can envision your stuff, where you can see yourself hanging out in the bathroom, and where your basic requirements are met.
