Now you get down to the reason you are going through the home buying process, you get to pick the home of your dreams by viewing the homes that you have chosen to view.
There are many different real estate websites available online to search, locate and find what type of house you are looking to enter into a contract. Your Realtor will sit down with you to make your list of your wants and needs. This list consists of amenities that you need for your or your family such as the number of bedrooms or bathrooms. Once this list is complete your Realtor will then use the tools available to enter your information into your local MLS or multiple listing services to bring up a list of homes.
The criteria which you have determined Is a starting point. In Boise and surrounding areas, we use the Intermountain MLS for which your Realtor is a member. Now, most homebuyers now days have internet capability and email. You will be sent real estate listings to view and pick those that you wish to view. The listings have descriptions, pictures and all of the starting information to look at.
Now the goal here is not to check out as many homes as you can, this would be a detriment to locating the house that would be as close to what you are out to find. Confusion over homes your really should not view cuts the time and get you closer to moving time.
Your Realtor will meet you at the homes you wish to view has either set up appointments or determined that you can get into the property. Choosing the best home leads to the next steps of home ownership.
