If you view a home that makes all of the sacrifices suddenly feel like the best, most worthwhile decision ever, you most likely have found ‘The One.
BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) January 29, 2018
It’s not uncommon for a buyer to visit 10, 20 or even more homes before finding the property that’s right for them. “You only need to find one,” said Karlynn Spreder, founder of the Spreder Team at Colorado Landmark, Realtors. “But how do you know which is the one to make your home?”
To help buyers, Spreder, a Certified Residential Specialist, shares the following six signs that a home might in fact be “The One.”
No. 1: An instant feeling of possessiveness about the property. “When you walk into ‘The One,’ no matter how long you’ve been house hunting, you’ll get an involuntary surge of energy to do whatever it takes to make that home yours,” stressed Spreder. “If you’re at an open house and other buyers are viewing the place, you’ll start to feel competitive. If you’re at a private viewing, you’ll start to talk numbers and offer logistics.”
No. 2: Seeing flaws as adorable quirks. If one finds themselves viewing a home with traits that they would normally deem undesirable or as deal-killers, yet like the place so much that they instinctively compile a mental list of reasons those traits just don’t matter, they might have found “The One.”
“Smart buyers, however, should be aware of a syndrome called ‘Pottery Barn Psychosis,’ whereby the aesthetics of a wonderfully staged home with amazing curb appeal can hypnotize a buyer,” noted Spreder. “This syndrome renders buyers blind to the negative property features, which would be glaring or grave concerns if the place weren’t so desirable.”
No. 3: Immediately envisioning one’s family, furniture, remodeling choices, etc. into the home. “If you find yourself measuring the dining room with your footsteps to be sure your grandma’s table will fit or discussing whether the wall between the kitchen and dining room can be removed, it’s entirely possible that the home you’re viewing could be ‘The One,’” claimed Spreder.
No. 4: Loss of interest in seeing other homes. When buyers find “The One,” their interest in seeing other homes instantly dissipates.
No. 5: The bathroom and kitchen don’t disgust the buyer. Other people’s kitchens and bathrooms hold definite gross-out potential. “There’s just something about what goes on in those rooms that seems exceptionally intimate and even unsanitary,” stated Spreder. “So, if you happen to find yourself falling in love with a home’s river rock shower floor or drooling over the pot-filler, countertop or farmhouse sink, that’s a sign that you’re falling head over heels with a home that might just be ‘The One.’”
No. 6: The money, time and energy spent feels worth it. “If you view a home that makes all of the sacrifices suddenly feel like the best, most worthwhile decision ever, you most likely have found ‘The One,’” concluded Spreder.
