How Many Homes Should You See before Making an Offer?

Kingstowne VA home- Live the lifestyle youve always wanted when you buy a home for sale in Kingstowne VA.

Are you in search of your dream home?


House hunting can be an exciting experience. You get to tour different houses for sale in Kingstowne VA.


But how many should you see before making an offer especially considering a house is a huge investment?


The answer is there's no magic number!


It depends on your personal circumstances and what you're looking for.


If you're interested in just one neighborhood and you're focused in on that neighborhood alone, you're probably going to see fewer homes than someone who's focused on maybe multiple neighborhoods or maybe even multiple cities.


I also tell my clients that buying a home is an emotional experience. People make the decision to purchase based on their feelings. Research even shows that our emotions drive us more than we think when it’s time to make a home purchase.


The truth is people generally don’t select a house; they fall in love with it. You will know when you find the right home. There is a gut feeling and a connection when you find the right home. Trust your judgment.


You really don't have to think too much about how many homes you’ve seen. It really just depends on individual circumstances and it shouldn't come down to a number.


The right number of properties to view will be different for each person.  


For some, finding the right home comes quickly while for others, it can take much longer.


Let me share with you tips on how to streamline your house hunting process.


1. Identify your priorities


Before looking at any Kingstowne VA homes for sale, sit down and write out everything you want in a home. Differentiate between what you need and what you want in your new home.


Identify your lifestyle. Where do you work? What do you do for fun? Where do your friends live? Is the neighborhood you’re looking at ideal for that?

2. Determine what you can afford


Nothing spoils house hunting more than discovering a home is beyond your budget after you've fallen in love with it. Before you start looking for your potential home, calculate how much you can afford. You may use an online mortgage calculator or consult with a mortgage specialist to create your budget.


3. Work with the right agent


Looking for your next home can be a confusing and exhausting experience if you don’t have the right agent. That’s why I’m here to assist you!


As an experienced real estate agent, I can help you narrow your focus and your expectations right from the get-go. As your agent, I will listen to your needs and direct you to the homes in the neighborhoods you are interested in that fit your criteria and your budget. I will not waste your time by showing you homes that are out of your price range, or that don't have the features you want.


Buying a home is a great learning experience. With the right help and support from an experienced real estate agent, it can also be a rewarding journey.
