To help you choose the best real estate professional to represent you in the home buying process, it is important to understand what your personal objectives are so you can present them to prospective agents and evaluate their ability to help you meet your goals.
One of your primary objectives will be to secure a home that will meet your family's needs. You might want to consider the following:
What is important to you? Proximity to employment? Proximity to schools? Is shopping or public transportation important? Do you prefer the peace and quiet of a rural or suburban community or the hustle and bustle of city life? Who are “your people” and where do they live?
Are schools an important consideration for your family? What do you want? Diversity? Proximity? Specific athletics or arts?
