Every person, who is about to buy a house soon, goes through some totally different stages. The first one is always the initial enthusiasm – you are happy and emotional and you see the picture of the house of your dreams so explicitly in your mind and you are talking constantly about what you are going to do when you go there and you are so into interior design, buying magazines, making research and looking for furniture and decorations. And then something happens, it may be the first house tour or an actual conversation with a real estate agent, and you instantly come back to the reality. And then is the stage two, you are somehow scared now, you are don’t love changes at all and the whole thing about losing ground, leaving your sweet home and jumping into the unknown, makes you so nervous. You are procrastinating, not answering the calls of the agent and ignoring his texts.
And only after some time, you calm down and think rationally – yes, you need a new home, you need a bigger house or one closer to the downtown or your new job, you deserve a better home and you can afford it, so the house hunting can actually start, right?
The third stage is indeed the best one, because you feel the joy in your heart, but you have set foot strongly on the ground in the same time. Moving is exciting, so get started.
Before you begin with the actual house hunting, you need to be perfectly aware of what you want – how big should your new house be, and where should it be situated? Do you need a backyard? Is the location determining or the quality of the property? How could you buy it? Are your savings enough? Would you mortgage? The rule is simple: look for a loan before you look for a home. Only after you know what you are searching, you could easily find the right place. Otherwise you will only lose time visiting houses in different neighborhoods and so on.

Do not be too emotional
Being enthusiastic is nice, but do not overdo. You should not fall in love with a house and become too emotional, because here you should be rational and think wisely. The emotions may only make you buy a house that looks so nice, but turns out to be totally unpractical. So never lose touch with the reality.
