If this is your first time around purchasing a home in Barbados, it may be a bit overwhelming yet exciting at the same time. If all goes according to plan you will finally have a place to call your own. Excitement aside, there are several factors which need to be carefully considered and evaluated when making this monumental step in your life. Homes.com’s blog has outlined several tips for effective house hunting for your dream home. Follow these tips and you will not only sail through your mortgage acquisition and purchasing process but you will have peace of mind about your investment. Here are a few of the tips from the blog.

1. Figure out what your ‘perfect home’ looks like. Write down on a piece of paper all of the things you must have in your new home, things that would be nice to have and things that don’t really matter.

2. Purchase a home that stays in budget. Make sure to get pre-approved for a loan before going out to look at houses. It will make the buying process much easier and you will know which houses to look at.

3. Bigger isn’t always better. While we all dream of having a huge mansion, it’s good to think about what will be best for your family. Figure out how many rooms you need to fit your family comfortably and look in that range.

4. Think about remodelling. Many homes you will look at may not be in the best \ condition, but think about the potential of the house. Would painting and new wood floors turn it into your dream house? How about a kitchen or bathroom remodel? There are many easy fix-ups such as adding new light fixtures and painting that can turn your house into the perfect home.
