When a client is searching for a home, they will often start with a search engine such as Google, Bing or Yahoo. The next step is to put in some key word, like Charlottesville Homes or Charlottesville Real Estate.
Searching for a Charlottesville Home
From the results they will try a few sample web-pages and often may even use a national site. Then they start viewing homes and even saving favorites. What they do not typical understand is that searching for a home and finding a home can very often be two different things.
Finding a Charlottesville Home
I try to emphasize to my buyers that, to find a home, they need to learn the area first. Once they do this, one area will be more desirable to them than others and then we can focus on a finding the right home. The perfect home will present itself, once we have the area figured out.
It really is that simple, but it is so tempting to just search for a home, do not put the cart before the horse. As with a lot of things, this can be a mistake.
Let me know if this makes sense?
