Effective Habit #2 Wants and Needs.
Tell your agent, “I want a 3 bedroom 3 bath house in the Kenai
Peninsula area.” Your agent will provide you with a list of homes that meet
your criteria. You will see 100’s of listing for sale in the Kenai Peninsula area.
You can’t possibly look at ALL of these potential homes.
Instead, try telling you agent, “I’m looking for a 3 bedroom
2 bath home between $160-185k. Two story, with a two car garage in the Kenai or
Nikiski area.” Your list will be narrowed down to around 20 homes. Looking at
around 20 potential homes is something you CAN do.
Make a list of what you MUST have in your home. Then a list
of what you would LIKE to have. Finally, make a list of things you DON’T WANT. For
example, “I have small children. I don’t want a waterfront home.” Talk to your
agent about these things, and he’ll be sure to find the perfect home for you.
