I'll Just Keep Looking 'Til I Find The "Perfect" House!

I'll Just Keep Looking 'Til I Find The "Perfect" House! How many times have I heard that before? In 26 years selling real estate , more times than I can count.

So how do you answer that?  Well, I've always told my buyers, there are not too many "perfect" houses out there.  So if you think you're going to keep looking until the perfect one comes along, you better decide if you want that home BEFORE you get to heaven!Maybe this is it?

I know, we all want to believe that it's really out there...the PERFECT house!

The truth of the matter is, that even if you custom-built it from scratch, and money wasn't a limiting factor, you'd probably have to agree that even after it was all done, you'd think of SOMETHING you just might have done a little differently...it won't be quite "perfect". And since, for most of us, money IS a limiting factor, let's get down to reality and forget about the house that's absolutely perfect.

Take another look.... So if we can agree on that, let's take another look at what's out there. There are a lot more homes on the market right now so you have a LOT to choose from. Surely something comes pretty close to meeting your needs and even some of your wants. And with prices the way they are, in most markets, well-qualified buyers kind of have an upper hand. You may be able to get quite a bit of house for your money, and maybe you'll even be able to change that very nice (but not quite perfect) house into something that you can really be comfortable and happy with, probably for quite a long time.

After all, right now it's just a house. But once you move into it, and change this, and paint that (your favorite color, of course), it'll be "home", and that's what will really make it perfect!

If it's time to buy a home in Windsor, Bloomfield, or the Greater Hartford area, give me a call. Let's discover that "practically perfect" house together and I'll help you find your next perfect home!
