The Importance of Keeping Your Search Criteria Simple


While browsing for properties online, many people like to get very specific with their criteria; however, in our current market, you may be better off limiting your search by price range.

Instead of looking exclusively at homes that have two or three bathrooms and a two-car garage, search by price range. This way, you can see how far your money can go. Agents will often categorize properties incorrectly when they list them.

“Buyers using very limited search criteria tend to miss out on a lot of properties that match their needs, but have been categorized incorrectly online.” 

Buyers using very limited search criteria tend to miss out on a lot of properties that match their needs but have been categorized incorrectly online. This could cause them to skip over homes that have everything they’re looking for.

So keep your searches simple. Enter in the price range and the minimum number of bedrooms you need. Then leave the rest of it open to create a broader search. This will give you the best of luck finding your future home.
