What do I need to tell my Realtor so I find the perfect home and area which fits my needs?

There are many factors you should share with your Realtor to ensure he/she is focused on what is appealing to you.  Some questions to ask yourself and share the answers with your Realtor are:
  1. What size (number of bed/baths), type of home (condo/town home/detached home) are you looking for?  If detached home, is one with a pool important?
  2. What is your price point?
  3. Are you looking for a home which is ready to move in or would you consider distressed properties which may require work?
  4. What are you looking for in a community?
  5. Are you hoping to be within certain distance from certain attractions, parks, downtown/city life, access to major highways, or other specific landmarks?
  6. If working, what is the driving distance you'd prefer to be from your job? 
  7. What academics/sports are you looking for in local schools if you have children?
  8. Other ammenties/features that are helpful to know - Golf community?  Gated community? 55+ community?
This is not a full list of what your Realtor may ask but it's a good range to get you started. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact me at -
