By Nieland Homes

Buying a Portland Oregon Home is one of the most exciting things you will do in your life but the reality is that it’s easy to get overwhelmed with this process when buying a home should be an easy process from start to finish.

Here are 4 tips you should use to buy your dream home and avoid overwhelm

Tip #1 – Create a Home Buying Plan

Before you start searching for homes in Portland Oregon you should know exactly what you’re searching for in a home, where you want to live in Portland, what your budget is and most important of all, when you want to buy a home.

Tip #2 – Hire a Real Estate Agent

Hire a Realtor® who specializes in buying and selling homes in Portland Oregon, has at least 2 years of experience and also has a plan for finding homes to show you even when other buyers may not be able to find homes within their budgets.

Tip #3 – Think Long Term

Even though you may have found a home with a great kitchen you must ask yourself if it’s in a great school district or has amenities nearby that will help the home to keep its value because, you may want to sell your home in the future and want to offer a property buyers will be interested in.

Tip #4 – Stay Flexible

Let’s say you’ve found a great home which is close to some fantastic schools, amenities and is in a prime location but, it needs work. In this instance you must stay open to what the home can offer in the long term because even though the home may look bad now it won’t look that way forever.
