It’s normal to be cautions when you’re buying a home . It’s a big investment. Some people tell us they just knew, it reminded them of a happy place in their past, gut instinct if you like – others said you know when ….
  1. You want to go inside the house. Part of the excitement of looking at homes is not knowing which could be your new home when you pull up to the kerb. Something about this house appeals to you. First impressions are everything.
  2. The house embraces you the moment you enter. You’ll know within about three seconds of entering whether the feels warm and comforting. Does it seem to speak to you? Does it invite you to explore? Does it feel like home? If so, it probably is.
  3. You don’t feel funny in the bathroom. Sometimes buyers feel so uncomfortable near a bathroom that they won’t walk into the room. They’ll stand outside, grab the door frame, and poke their heads in for a minute. This is your home if you walk into the bathroom and feel compelled to open the shower door or stroke the vanity marble!
  4. You feel defensive about the house. Maybe your agent points out a flaw or two or five and says, “There’s a stain in the kitchen sink” or “I’d update this, this, and this.” It could be a sign that you’re falling for the house if you find yourself getting defensive, like the house is already yours.
  5. You begin to imagine the furniture arrangement. This might be your house if you walk into the master bedroom and can immediately envision your bed against a particular wall. You’re already hooked if you find yourself thinking that the living room window is a perfect spot to put a tree come Christmas.
  6. Neighbourhood – Maybe you can already see yourself driving up the street, heading home after a hard day at work. There’s a neighbour across the street walking a dog, and you think they might be people you’d like to know. Neighbourhood counts as much as furniture placement.
  7. It checks the most important boxes. The property might not have every amenity on your want list, but it meets the basic requirements. It has the number of rooms and space you need. Maybe it doesn’t have a garage, and you realize in a flash of enlightenment that buying a house with a garage is really not that important after all. You realise you could build a garage if it turns out you really do want one. Sudden urges to be flexible are a good sign that you’re in the right place.
  8. You want to stop looking at other homes. All the other homes you’ve been looking at no longer appeal to you. You compare each new property you visit to this one, and they’re not measuring up. The homes you had previously rated a “No. 2” have now fallen to a “No. 8” rating because they just pale in comparison to this one.
  9. You can’t wait to brag about it. Did you already snap a few photos and post them already ? You might have found the one if you’re feeling excitement after your first tour of the place.
  10. You’re already planning to go back. If you got in the car, chatted with your spouse, and immediately planned your next visit to the property before you even left the driveway, you’re a goner. You want to see it at a different time of day or take your mum or best friend with you the next time.
  11. After you talk to the agent, contact us . Yes you can sleep on it, but “if you snooze you lose”, you’re not the only homebuyer looking for your criteria.
  12. NO MOVE NO FEE – If your contract doesn’t settle, you won’t pay. You are protected from financial issues and conditions not being met. Phone: 07 3236 2852 | Email: | Level 17, 300 Adelaide Street, Brisbane QLD 4000
