Home Buyer Must Haves Mean Compromise
Searching for a home to buy can be frustrating. Mostly because it's not always easy to find a house in the right neighborhood with every one of the features you dreamed of. If you find the perfect kitchen, the house will have too few bedrooms. Or you'll find a house with the right number of bedrooms and the kitchen will be too small. In other words, buying a house means compromise. And, in today's market, buyers are having to make difficult choices. For example, a new analysis from the National Association of Realtors' consumer website found that for 73 percent of recent buyers school district was an important factor in deciding which house to buy. But, among those buyers, nearly 80 percent said they had to give up other home features in order to find a house in their preferred district. Some of the features these buyers said they gave up included a garage, a large backyard, an updated kitchen, and an outdoor living area. In short, you might not get everything you want in one house. So prioritize your wish list and know what's most important to you. More here.
