Houston First-time Home Buyer Step # 4: Setup a Custom Home Search
Posted by Vincent Biondillo on Sep 28 2011
Your budget is set and locations have been identified, now your Realtor has the information he/she needs to setup your custom home search portal. Your Realtor should ask you questions on the following items to complete your custom search:
Type of Property (single family home, town home, condo, etc.)
# of Bedrooms
# of Bathrooms
Age of the home
Architectural Style preference
Yard/Green Space Requirements
Number of Garage Spaces
And the List Goes On
Your Realtor will compile this information into a custom search which will give you access to an online portal to view properties. This portal will include the property description, details, photos, and map. You can categorize and make comments on the individual properties. This feedback will help your Realtor identify the top prospects in your search.
Once you’ve had some time to view the properties online, the next step will be to view them in person.
