Doctor Leon's Prescriptions

Prescription for
Finding Your Dream Home

Buying a home is an emotional experience. But, you must be the master to make the best home purchase decision for you. Great decisions flow from wisdom, rarely from unbridled emotion.

Part of wisdom is to have a well thought out plan to help you through the rough spots.

The plan should include:


Know what you want – Make a list of required features and another for nice to have features. Having a clear idea of what you want is essential to being able to recognize it when you see it.


Know your budget – Be clear on what you are willing to spend on a home. If you will be getting a mortgage, get pre-qualified by a lender so that you understand the mortgage terms that are available to you. Avoid getting attached to homes that cost more than you are comfortable with.


Avoid complicated deals – There are many forms of complication, such as contingent offers, bank foreclosures, homes needing extensive repairs, etc. But, these conditions have in common that they most often lead to major disappointments that can sour your home buying experience.


Know when to buy -- Making the decision to purchase can be scary. That’s why we do home inspections and have sundry processes to protect the buyer. You need a plan to evaluate when it is time to buy. Commitment anxiety can be debilitating. It’s one more case where wisdom must prevail over emotion.
