Being ruled by the heart and not the head. Although, the decision to purchase a house often begins with your heart – don’t let you heart rule the process. For example, curb appeal can be a powerful force. If your heart is in love with the white picket fence or the expansive yard – make sure you are not overlooking other aspects of the home as a result.
Be objective and look at an assortment of homes. List the positives and the negatives of every home. Can you reduce or eliminate the negatives? Perhaps you could recruit a friend to view the home and give you objective feedback. Think about how long you plan to own the home and if it will be difficult to resell.
Don’t exclude your heart from the process – just be sure your head is in charge.
