How you buy a home has a lot to do with your personality.
Brain-driven thinkers tend to use spreadsheets to organize; websites to research; and, benefits lists to decide which home is best.
Heart-driven thinkers use emotion and feeling; photos and mapping; and home tours to make their decision.
Everyone’s process for buying a home, though, is pretty much the same.
First, you’ll mentally prepare for buying a home; a process which can take up to one year or longer, in some cases.

On the day you move in, you’ll get yourself comfortable, unpack all your boxes, and change the locks on the doors. You’ll set up your alarm and spot clean around the house.
That night, you’ll sleep in your new bedroom for the very first time and it will be an exciting night for everyone.
You’ve done it. You’ve bought a home.
