You will almost always have to compromise some things, however, if it feels like you are compromising too much–you likely are!
2. Constantly Revise Your Search if Necessary
Finding a home is like an adventure, and with the right folks behind you, it can be fun! It is good to start off with a plan, however, avoid feeling like it is a failure if you do not stick to it.

When picking your next home, your long term happiness is the most important thing to consider. Do you want or need something completely turn-key? It’s okay if you do, but if you are up for a little work─let us know! It is important to identify the easy fixes. Sometimes the diamonds in the rough are hiding under the coat of old wallpaper! We can run the numbers and see what makes sense.
