When Making a "Blind" Move to Dallas, an Experienced REALTOR Makes ALL the Difference!

When making a "blind move" to a new area, your home buying strategy is somewhat different than if you are moving to an area where you have some kind of a background or knowledge base.

How is it different?

The biggest difference - and the largest challenge - is knowing WHICH CITY to focus on!  You essentially must shop the cities BEFORE you can shop for a house.

As their agent, we asked lots and lots of questions to see what areas would make the most sense, like:

  • Where will you be working?
  • How far of a commute are you comfortable with?
  • Will you want to take advantage of the DART Rail system, or will you be driving in to work?
  • Are finding good public schools a concern, or will you be finding a private school?
  • What is your price range?
  • Are you OK with older homes, or do you prefer the newer?
  • HOA or NO HOA's?
  • What kind of recreational activiities does your family enjoy? Boating? Golf? Art?
  • What size LOT do you want your home to be on? Need acreage? Townhomes or Condos OK?

All of these answers help guide us - do they stay in Dallas, or head to a suburb? If a suburb, which one? If we don't ask all the right questions, then we're going at this just as blind as they are! It's our goal to help get them on the right course from the beginning.
