Advice for Buyers: Create a Property Wish List

Shopping for a new home should be an enjoyable experience, however, in reality for many it can often become a frustrating and challenging burden.  That’s why I recommend putting together a property wish list before starting the process.  Basically this means putting together a  list of things that you would love your new home to have.  Simple really!   As you shop around expect that your wish list will change, but not having a starting point will just lead to frustration.  Check out the list below, it includes some basic criteria to help you start creating your own personal property wish list.  Have fun!
