Planning is not an individual sport. Have a family meeting to discuss what you want in your next home, so that everyone is on the same page…
Buying a new home affects everyone in your family and people often forget to include their family members in this decision. This could be your children, parents, in-laws, or other relatives/family friends. I believe excellent communication is vital in the buying process not just with your real estate agent, but also with everyone involved. This will help avoid any issues/problems that may arise after the decision has already been made. Buying a home and moving will be one of the biggest decisions of your life, so make sure to do your due diligence prior to purchasing.
Ultimately, the person or people involved in the transaction may have the final choice, but including others will give you insight of their opinions and how they feel. This will reduce any hidden issues that may arise after the purchase and this communication with your family will help strengthen the decision and eliminate any potential buyer remorse.
Remember, buying a home is a big decision, but I believe family is always the top priority. Make sure to include everyone and have great communication not only with your real estate agent, but with your family as well.
