Here are some helpful tips to make your house hunting experience as efficient, effective, and enjoyable as possible.

Do your homework first
Before you start your search, figure out how much you can afford to spend. List you what you need and want in a house and study the list. You’re eager to get started, but you’ll save time and money if you are prepared.

Know your limits
Decide how many houses you will look at on one trip. Don’t over-do it! If you try to see too many houses
in one go, your judgment will be clouded by confusion and fatigue.

As a passenger, you can focus on observing your surroundings, taking notes, marking maps, and asking

inspection on your second visit.
