Imagine your ideal home then make a list of everything you envisioned, such as the number of beds/baths, the style of home, and location. Then break that list down into high-priority items you can’t live without and lower-priority things that would be an added bonus. Use this list to guide your search online and with your agent.

Once you know how much you can afford and what you’re looking for in a home, it’s time to start your search. And the best place to start is online. Consider setting up a MyWindermere account so you’re notified every time something new comes on the market that fits your search parameters. Your real estate agent can also send you potential homes and take you to tour them in person once you’re ready to get serious. In the meantime, if you want some inspiration, you can peruse the pages of Windermere Living Magazine.
