When buying a primary residence or a vacation home there are many things to consider. We want to help you secure a property that works best for your unique needs and wants as well as help you get the best value possible. We would like to help you on the Outer Banks and adjacent areas.
Looking at the properties available and trying to figure out which one might work best can be a daunting task. It doesn’t have to be that difficult if you take some time for some personal introspection. It is a good idea to write down those features that are most important as well as those things the property must not have. A list of “needs vs. wants” is a good place to start. Here is a list of possible “needs vs. wants” to help you get started.
- Specific carpeting or exterior color
- Hardwood floors, tile, carpet
- Ocean or Sound Views
- “Big Sky” beach Feel
- Adequate square footage
- Sufficient bedrooms for your family
- Sufficient bathrooms
- Comfortable eat-in kitchen
- Beach access
- Rental income
Feel free to use the worksheet below to brainstorm on what are the most important things to have in your new home. This can be a great exercise to help you organize. If you submit it to us we’ll suggest some properties that you may want to consider. Our goal is to help you find the best home for you!
