Are you searching for a new home?

It’s important that you identify your must-haves as you begin your search for a new home. Granted, inventory homes for sale in Houston are at an all-time low, causing a shortage of homes to choose from in the Houston real estate market. But then again, interest rates are also at a record low so you can get more home for your hard-earned dollar.  But does that mean you have to settle for something that really doesn’t meet your lifestyle or other criteria that would bring you joy in your new home? 

Open houses are a great way to get a real feel for the home you are considering purchasing. You can walk the property, inside and out; take note of possible fixes or improvements that would really put your mark on the home—make it your own.

Home Buyers Checklist for Your Home Search

When our agents begin working with a home buyer, we give them Home Buyers Checklist to take with them as we search for homes in Houston. It covers items like how many bedrooms, covered patio, number of bathrooms, types of counters, and more. 

FLIP AND PRINT A COPY OF THE HOMEBUYERS CHECKLIST.  (Hint: You can also do a Print, then "save as PDF" when you select your printer. :) )

In addition to a home buyers checklist, to help narrow your home search consider these items:

  • Do you know your budget? Have you pre-qualified through your financial institution? Know what you can afford and stick to it.

  • Determine your desired location. Are schools important to you? Do you need to be close to major access points for commuting? Would you like to be closer to your place of worship? 

  • Are community amenities important to you? Community pool, recreational area, playgrounds, walking trails, sidewalks, dog park?

One of our experienced RE/MAX agents on the team will help you determine what you value most in your home search. REALTORS® on the Matthew Guzman Team have access to powerful tools to help you as you search for homes in the Houston area.
