Balancing the Emotional and Practical Sides of Buying a Home in Kelowna

Imagine this scenario...
You're shopping for a new home in Kelowna. You drive to visit a new listing. As you
walk through the front doors, you're impressed. Every room looks fantastic.
You see yourself relaxing on the spacious patio, cooking in the modern
kitchen, and enjoying evenings with the family in the cozy living room.
Your emotions are on overdrive. This is your dream home!
Should you make an offer? Probably. In fact, you should make that decision
quickly in case there are other interested buyers.
However, your decision shouldn't be guided purely by emotion. You want to
make sure you take practical matters into consideration too.
For example, you'll want to consider:
· Is the property within your price range?
· Does it have everything you need?
· Do you like the neighbourhood?
· How old is the property? Are there items, such as the furnace, that
may need to be replaced soon?
· Will it need any major repairs or upgrades?
· What are the average monthly costs of carrying the home? (Property
taxes, utilities, etc.)
Once you've considered the purchase of the home from a practical
standpoint, you'll have a lot more confidence in your decision when you
make an offer.
