Important factors to consider when buying your home include:

If you have children, it is important to find a good school with quality educators. Grand Island, and the surrounding communities, is thankful to have schools that provide opportunities for growth. Ask New View Real Estate what school is nearby your potential neighborhood that would be a good fit for your children.
If you do not have children, it is important to understand what schools are nearby so you can plan your regular routes accordingly. Ask New View Real Estate about the schools nearby and potential alternative routes you can take to avoid traffic.
Nearby factories/plants, trains, busy streets or other possible disruptions
Sensory sensitivities are the first thing you’ll notice during your first nights’ stay in your new home. Before committing to a home, ask your New View Real Estate agent about factors that could contribute to any sensory sensitivity that you may have.
Matching your current and future lifestyle with yard space is a major factor when looking at purchasing a new home. Not only is it vital to consider pets and children, but the amount of time you have to contribute to lawn care.
Ask your New View Real Estate agent about nearby lawn care services if you have concerns on time you would spend on making your new yard look pristine.
Considering future plans should always be a factor when looking at a new home. Will you add to your family? Will people often gather at your house? If so, is your potential home equipped to handle what your future could possibly bring?
Look beyond the staging
There is careful time and consideration put in to staging a home so that you can imagine yourself living there. Although it’s easy to get sucked into the beautiful, tasteful décor, take a moment to step back and look beyond the staging.
Are any necessary updates realistic for your lifestyle?
It’s easy for one to say, “Yes! I’d love to fix up a home.” When actuality sets in, fixing up a home takes additional time, money, and resources. Are you realistically equipped to take on a fixer upper? If you feel that you are, how much can you actually manage? Will these projects fit in to your time line? What part of the house is top priority and which part can you settle with for a while?

Finding the perfect home for buyers and finding the optimal prices for sellers-has helped us come up with a few great steps to take before selling your home:
- Curb Appeal
- Improve your home’s curb appeal by minimizing the clutter. Take a moment to give your home some social media exposure.
Depersonalize Your Space
- Family photos, bold artwork, and anything personal can distract potential buyers from visualizing themselves in the house.
Declutter Living Space
- Be sure to do a clean sweep of the home before listing it. That includes cleaning window sills, tables, counters, and even behind closed doors. Nothing is off limits to potential home buyers, so you want to limit that amount of overflowed spaces. When a space is filled, the potential home buyer may worry that there is not going to be enough space for their own belongings.
- Repainting the walls to neutral tones will assist in selling your home. If a potential homebuyer sees an accent wall that does not suit their personal taste, it could be seen as additional time, work and investments they will need to put into the house and discourage them from the final sale.
Fix Loose Handles
- As homebuyers are opening door after door, cabinets and drawers, they will begin to notice the small things, including loose handles. Although this is usually a simple fix, it is worth taking the time before showing the house.
Plants, Smells and Other Senses
- Beware of other small factors that could make or break the sale, even down to the smells. A foul odor could deter a client from feeling ready to make the commitment on your home. The expert realtors at New View Real Estate recommend asking an unbiased third party to do the smell test as there could be lingering odors from the pets or kitchen that you might not even notice.
- Making potential buyers feel comfortable in the space is key to them starting to imagine themselves living there. A simple addition of a small house plant makes any room feel warm and inviting.
