THE REAL ESTATE UNICORN

When buying a home, you might think to yourself....

"I want to live in a nicely finished house, in a great neighborhood, for the perfect price!"

This is what is known as a Real Estate Unicorn - A property with incredible finishes, in a wonderful neighborhood, for a great value. 

There are three key elements go into the Real Estate Unicorn, and they are not faith, trust and pixie dust. They are:

Location

Where is the home located?

What schools, shopping and other amenities are in the area?

What are the demographics of the neighborhood?

Is it easy to commute to and from?

Price

Is their value in the home at the price you will pay for it?

Does the home fall within your budget?

Home Interior and Exterior Finishes

Is the home move in ready?

Are there any upgrades or renovations that need to be done?

Is the home to your taste?

Searching for a home that includes the best of all three categories may prove difficult. It is important for home buyers to determine which two categories are the most important to them. Here are the different scenarios:

1. LOCATION + PRICE = May be in need of some TLC, updates, renovations to make the house your dream home.

2. PRICE + FINISHES = May not be in the most desired neighborhood with the all the amenities you may want.

3. FINISHES + LOCATION = You may have to pay a premium for the home because they are in high demand and getting a good deal might not be possible. 

4. LOCATION + PRICE + FINISHES = UNICORN

Here is the great news.... you don't have to do it alone!
