How to Look for Your Home

Vision Realty, REALTORS«
Believing in the American Dream of Home Ownership.

Vision Realty takes part in the over
12 million new and existing homes sold each year!

We're here to help you meet the challenge of finding the property which best suits your needs.

The housing market is complicated because the inventory of homes for sales is always in a state of constant change.  The list of homes we may present to you may become obsolete by the time we call to preview the property.  Why?  We have an old saying in the real estate industry, "The home you saw yesterday sold today!"

In effect, buyers are looking at a moving target in a marketplace that is never static.  Because of this, it is important to know as much as possible about the choices in preferred markets, and the way to do this is by working closely with one of the agents at Vision Realty to find your home.

What are You looking for in a home or property?

A home is more than just a collection of bedrooms and bathrooms.  Several properties - each with four bedrooms, three baths, and the same price - may well represent radically different designs, commuting distances, lot sizes, tax costs, interior dimensions, and exterior finishes.

Each person is different, therefore it is important to list the features and benefits you want in a home.  Consider such things as pricing, location, size, amenities (extras such as a pool or extra large kitchen), and design (one or two story, Victorian or ranch, etc.).

Next it is important to consider your priorities.  If you are not able to obtain a home at your price with all the features you want, then what features are most important to you?  Would you take fewer bedrooms for a larger kitchen?  Would you take less land for the home you want?

You should also consider your needs in several years.  If you'll need a larger home, maybe now is the time to buy a bigger home rather than moving or expanding in the future.  If you expect your income to increase, perhaps you should consider a more expensive home financed with a loan program where monthly payments increase in the future.

How do I find a home?

You can begin by viewing properties on line right here at  Just  click on Real Estate for Sale and print off your favorites, then make notes for each one - what you like, questions, etc.  Then contact Vision Realty and we'll be happy to make the appointment to show you anyone of the homes you selected.

There's no doubt that selecting the right home is a big decision.  You'll want to do it the right way!

Here's what actually happens in the housing market.  A home is placed on the market for which the seller has established an asking price as well as other terms.  In effect, this is an offer.  At this point, you have three choices:
    Accept the seller's offer and create a contract.
   Reject it and not make an offer.
    Suggest different terms and make a counter-offer.
If you select the last option, the seller may accept, reject or make a counter-offer.

No aspect of the home buying process is more complex, personal or variable than bargaining between buyers and sellers.  This is the point where the value of an experienced REALTOR« is clearly evident because he or she knows the community, has seen numerous homes for sale, knows local values and has spent years negotiating real estate transactions.

Is this house THE home for you?

A house is a shelter, but a home is far more.  It is where you live, relax, entertain friends, raise families, and work.  A home is where you spend much of your life.  It is an enormous decision.

How do you know if a house is THE one?  Take your time viewing the homes at, then contact a Vision Realty agent and they will be happy to help you view all the homes on the Multiple Listing Service.  We'll help you find just the right home.

we're here to guide you through the homebuying process!
That's what we're trained to do best!
