If you’re searching for a home for sale along 30A, or anywhere else, for that matter, you need to know one thing up front: There’s no such thing as a perfect house.
However, a perfect enough house is a thing – and it’s just what you’re looking for.
Here’s what you need to know about making an offer.
Should You Wait for the Perfect Home to Make an Offer?
If you love a home, you’re likely to overlook its imperfections. However, if you’re on the fence about it, you’re going to see every last one of them. There are two things to be cautious about here: One, you don’t want to be blinded to a home’s deficiencies, and two, you don’t want to zero in on them if they’re minor because it can prevent you from getting a home you’ll end up loving later.
Here’s the fix: Grade the homes you see on a scale of 1 to 10. It’s a great idea to bring printouts of each listing with you as you tour so you can write your grade on each piece of paper. You should grade the houses you see as soon as you leave – and you can jot down notes about what you like and don’t like about each, too (after a day of touring houses, things start to blend together).
At the end of the day, you can compare all the homes you toured. You’ll have a “discard” pile for homes you definitely don’t want, and you’ll most likely have a lot of “maybes.” If you have some definite “yes” homes, call your agent – it’s probably time to make an offer.
