What Does The Perfect Atlanta Home Look Like?

Posted by on Friday, March 2nd, 2012 at 10:15am.

What does the perfect Atlanta home look like? Is it a condo overlooking the city or a small country home that comes complete with a white picket fence?

If you ask 10 people about their idea of a perfect home, you will likely get a decidedly different answer from each person. This is because what you desire and need is likely far different from what your friend or neighbor desires or needs.

If you want to convey your thoughts of your perfect home to your Atlanta Realtor so that he or she can find the home that’s right for you, consider the following:

The home’s location – Don’t just think in terms of geographical location, like the city or town. Instead, think beyond that. In other words, consider the location of the home. Do you want to live on a dead-end street or a street that is close to public transportation, your kids’ bus stop or the local grocery store? Do you want a private backyard, or is outdoor living not that important to you? Is a family neighborhood important to you, or would you like a home that will afford you more privacy?

The number of bedrooms and bathrooms – In order to convey your needs and wants to your realtor when searching for a new home, you should have a number in mind when it comes to bedrooms and bathrooms. For example, you may want to view homes that have at least two full bathrooms and at least three bedrooms. Understanding your family’s needs and conveying this information to your realtor will likely save you a considerable amount of time looking at homes that simply don’t meet your needs.

The home’s amenities – Although amenities are generally thought of as “bonuses” as far as homes go, there may be a number of amenities that you must have to satisfy your quest for the perfect home. For example, you may want to only view homes with swimming pools, eat-in kitchens or master bathroom suites. You may want to make two lists for your realtor: one with a list of must-have amenities, and one that has your amenity wish list.

FInd a Home For Sale in Kent wrote: We try to emphasise that there are no perfect homes, only perfect homes for YOU! Everyone has so many different criteria, and what is perfect for one buyer may turn another off completely.

For example, sometimes we'll have old clients that want to get a downtown Seattle condo. Most of our clients though, would pull out their fingernails with pliers before they'd fight the traffic of the crowded downtown scene. They enjoy the easier pace of life here, rather than the rat's nest that's the city.
The same goes for about any aspect of a client's new home. You have to discoverwhat's really important to the particular buyer and how to get the best match for them.
