There's no doubt that York, PA is a beautiful city, and within that city there are many homes for sale. But how do you go about finding a house in York that is perfect for you? Finding a dream home is doable with a little effort. If you're ready to begin your search, here are some steps you can take to ensure you find the home you've always dreamed of.

 

Determine What Your Dream Home Possesses

 

Before you can find the ideal house, you'll have to determine your priorities. You probably won't be able to find everything you desire, but if you have a solid foundation, you can add the rest of your wants and needs over the years. Some things to think about are:

  • Is location/neighborhood most important to you?
  • Do you want a large yard?
  • Is your list focused on rooms or house features?
  • Are you after a certain style of home?

Have the list start with your top wants and needs and descend to those that are least important.

 

Look at the Most Lived-In Spaces

 

Where do you spend the most time? Is it in the yard, in a craft room, or in the kitchen/family room? With a dream home, these are excellent places to zero in on during your search. Everything else can come later, but often the most lived in rooms are the ones you'll want right away.

 

Stay Away from Budget Offenders

 

You may have found the house that's everything you've ever wanted, and it's in the perfect location. If it's outside your budget, don't go and torment yourself. It's best to maintain control around houses that are tempting, but you can't afford.

 

Be Practical & Think Ahead

 

A dream home isn't always about what a house looks like or what it has now. For example, you'll want to consider how long you plan on staying in the home. If you are planning on starting a family, you may want to look for a home with a couple of extra rooms rather than focusing on a charming two-bedroom.

 

If maintenance or home improvement projects aren't your thing, a dream house may be one that doesn't require a lot of extra effort—and if that's the case, you'll probably want to look at newer construction. Be very careful about location. A not-as-nice home in a good neighborhood is much better than a beautiful house in a less-than-stellar neighborhood.

 

Remember that you can always renovate!

 

Don't Give Up

 

Searching for a home is an experience that takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. Between budget and bidding wars, you may see a few ups and downs before finding "the one". The key is to keep a positive attitude, and don't give up. When one deal falls through, it may be because there is something better waiting. Find patience and humor to guide you through the process.
