When it comes to finding the one, you need to remember that no house or partner is perfect. You won't find your 100 percent match. This is why it’s important to know and understand what you really need versus what you want.
You might be following a set of standards when you’re just starting to date—tall, dark, handsome, paired with a good sense of humor, etc. Dating someone for their looks alone might be fun at first, but without substance, the relationship won’t last. The same is true when you’re looking for your next home. You might’ve fallen in love with a house because of its beautiful and spacious porch or a huge backyard, but it doesn’t have an extra bedroom or lacks the storage space you need for your family. If it doesn’t fit your needs, however beautiful it may be, you could end up regretting it later on. This is why you must prepare your list of priorities even before buying a home. When a listing or property is at least 85 percent a match for your must-have list, you might need to compromise with the remaining 15 percent.
