You can greatly increase your chances of finding a property you really love if you broaden the pool of homes you are looking at. No need to go overboard, but sometimes keeping an open mind is the key to success!
If you aren't finding the home you want, you may not be looking in all the right places, or you may not be understanding all your options. It's cool when you suddenly discover what you had been looking for was under your nose the whole time!
Home shopping is a process that, by its nature, changes and shifts along the way. After trying on a few homes, some aren't going to fit or just not look that good on you. Then you discover what works for you...that's when the magic happens!
