Finding the perfect Fort Myers FL Home can be a difficult task. After all none of us have unlimited budgets and unlimited resources for finding that home. We come into the process at a particular time and work with the resources at our disposal to maximize our opportunity.
I suggest that the better you prepare the better you will fare in the end. Take the time to list your priorities. They can be as varied as the day is long. No two people value the same thing. For one person the golf course is the first consideration and then come home attributes. For another the school district is first and for yet another the home itself is priority number one.
The more clearly you define your priorities to your agent the more enjoyable your experience will be and the better your chances for landing the perfect home. Obviously part of the process is seeing homes first hand and reconciling our desires with reality. If your criteria are well defined you can quickly adjust to market realities. We have all seen the home 15 feet from the freeway and wondered why anyone would buy that home. The answer is that a price was put on that negative asset and the home was discounted to a point where it provided value to the purchaser. This is an extreme case but every home buyer goes through the same process. Perhaps the counters are not granite or the closet is not as large as we would like.
In the end the home must meet as many criteria as possible while still meeting your budget constraints. I believe that a home is what we make of it. Find the best home you can then make it your own and you will have many years of fond memories.
