Search Dallas Home Listings – It Isn’t All Business

search dallas home listings

Price, making an offer, negotiating, filling out tons of paperwork – true, buying a home involves a lot of business and may be part financial expedition, but it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t want to “settle.” Most people purchase a home intending to stay in it for decades, even perhaps forever, so it’s important that you find your ideal home. At Team Nelson, our Flower Mound realtors know that purchasing a home doesn’t only involve business or financial decisions – it involves emotional decisions as well.

There are certain “truths” you should keep in mind when you search Dallas home listings.

Location, location, location. How many times have you heard this worn-out cliche? It’s still critical in your home search. The location of your home is nearly as important as the house itself; after all, you will be living there well into the future, maybe even forever. Is the location a place you will want to live 10 or even 20 years from now?

If it isn’t everything you want, don’t settle. When searching for a home, what is a necessity, what would be nice to have, and what do you not want at all? Create a checklist of all of those things you’re looking for in a home, such as number of bedrooms, open floor plan, walk-in closets, an elegant bath complete with sauna. When a home doesn’t meet all of your criteria, don’t waste your time looking at it. It’s easy to become emotionally attached to a house that doesn’t really meet your needs.

Keep searching for as long as it takes. “It ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings” should be your mantra when searching for a home. You may find a home in the ideal location with an amazing view from the living room windows, but the structure itself isn’t in such great shape construction-wise. Or, you’ve found your dream home, but learned that someone died in the home – and that bothers you. For some it would be no big deal, for others, the possibility of spirits is too much to endure. Countless people have found what they believed to be their “dream homes,” only to have their hopes dashed by unexpected surprises. Keep searching! The third time may be a charm.

For the most part, buying a home really is one huge business transaction – but as the old saying goes, “Home is where the heart is.” The search for a home can be stressful, tough, even exhausting. However, with the help of an experienced and compassionate Dallas real estate agent, it can be easier and less time consuming, as your agent will be familiar with all homes in the area, making it easy to choose the ones that meet your criteria from the start.

    She closed for us and it was a difficult sale , not her fault but the fault of a previous mortgage agent. My wife and I love her and her work. Infact, she is in the process of representing us in a new house purchase. Ahsan Raza

  • One word to describe Team Nelson would be AWESOME! I worked with Bill, Andra, Andrea and Kelly. They respond to e-mails and phone calls quickly and are experts in every aspect of buying and selling real estate. We used Team Nelson to sell our house and buy a new house within 30 days of each other....

    We moved to the area 12 years ago and the Nelsons helped us find not only the perfect home, but the perfect neighborhood, neighbors, schools, etc. It's hard to find a realty team that is patient, available and genuinely concerned in making your home buying experience pleasurable and flawless. We found that with Bill & Andra Nelson and their team and wouldn't recommend anyone else or use anyone else to buy/sell a home.

    Everyone we’ve dealt with at Team Nelson has absolutely gone above and beyond what we would have expected from any realtor. They helped us get our house sold quickly and painlessly for the price we wanted. When we didn’t move forward with the build we intended to and had ongoing issues with the builders even after the fact Bill and Tara have still been in close contact with us trying to make sure we’re still taken care of. They genuinely care about making sure their clients are happy. We appreciate everything they’ve done and would 100% recommend them to anyone.
