Looking for your first/next property can seem tough, especially if it feels as though you have been looking around for a long time. Don’t let the process become a chore, it is one of the most exciting times of your life, a memory that you will never forget. If you are finding it difficult to get into the right mindset for finding a property or if the whole process is overwhelming you, here are a few simple tips that can make finding your dream property that little bit easier.
The best way to uncloud and destress your mind, lists. When you are looking around a property and keep finding aspects of the property that don’t fit your criteria, try writing all of your main property wishes down. Write all of them down on a list, then if you find that the list looks pretty extensive it may be time to make some compromises. From that list with all of your criteria on, make a separate list that perhaps only holds the top 5 or top 10 main things your property has to have.
Also, when looking at these criteria, see if they are things that you yourself can do to the property for example if you have been wishing for hardwood floors, perhaps look into doing them yourself.
Look at The Basics
If a property is poorly decorated or is even empty, it can be hard to imagine that space to be your home. When going into a property, focus on the basics like the light coming in through the windows, the space of the room itself, the ceiling height, the number of rooms, etc. If you still are really struggling to visualize beyond the existing furnished look of the place, why not try virtual staging.
Virtual staging is a real art rendering service that will show you what that property will look like with your style of furniture inside. It is done on a computer but looks so realistic so that you can see the potential in that property without having to really visualize it in your head. If you are interested in visual staging head to bariondesign.com.
If you can, try to expand your search area slightly as this may be the reason as to why you aren’t finding any suitable properties. If you expand the search area and find a property in an unknown area, before disregarding it why not go and have a look around to see if you could imagine yourself living there. Sometimes moving to a completely new neighborhood is such a blessing in disguise as you can explore and fall in love with an area whilst being lucky enough to live there.
Have fun whilst looking for your new property, any stresses or concerns you have don’t let them ruin the process. Look at the positives of your time searching, and always remember that by the end of it you will be settled in your dream property.
