Bothell real estate is a lot like the game of golf. You can have the right stance, the ability to play and connect with the ball. Without the proper follow-through, however, you’ll never reach the goal of sinking the ball in the hole in fewer shots.
The same is true for real estate. Even if you have the money to put down a down payment and to fund your mortgage payments and then proceed to find the right house, you may not be meeting your goals. Most people get into real estate without even establishing goals in the first place and so really have nothing to strive for.
Setting realistic goals
If you are only looking for a house that you can live in for the rest of your life, this is a goal. If you’re planning your future, however, you should take a look at the broader picture.
At some time in your life would you be interested in owning your own vacation property? Would you like the security of knowing that you never have to look for a hotel or a house to rent when you are heading out to your favorite vacation spot? If so, this should be added to your list of real estate goals. As long as it is added, you can strive to reach it.
Would you like a second property to develop an added income? This is a great form of security that you can use to build up a retirement income for the future. If this is something that you would like to do, add it to your list of Bothell real estate goals.
Do you want to change homes in the future? If you are not the type that wants to plan living in the same home for the rest of your life, your real estate goals should include looking for new residences when you are ready for a change.
When you write down your Bothell real estate goals you have something to work for. Many people look at real estate only as a way to find a house to live in and have not really clarified any type of future with real estate.
