You’re getting ready to start your house hunt. Cool. Maybe you even have an agent already. Double cool.
You’re about to do what 98% of other buyers do: use a real estate search engine or rely on your agent to send you listings from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), or a combination of the two. Chances are you’re going to find a house (or houses) you like, your agent will arrange some showings, you’ll ‘oooh’ and ‘aaah’ at the perfect one, submit an offer, some magical real estate stuff that agents can never reveal will happen and then you’ll have a new home. Congratulations.
But was that ‘perfect house’ really the perfect house? Did you really see all your options? Did your agent provide you the most opportunities?
If you’re thinking to yourself right now: “man, I really hope Andrew answers the above questions,” then this article is meant for you. Because I’m going to teach you how to house hunt like a boss.
