Some thoughts to remember: Buying a home can sometimes be a trying experience. You cannot create the perfect home in your mind and expect to find it overnight, no matter how many times you set yourself up for this expectation.  This is where many buyers start off on the wrong foot.  Insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

But here's what you can do. You can become a "wise buyer." A buyer can't make the perfect home in the perfect location pop out of nowhere.  They can't keep looking at homes, finding flaws in all of them, demand better results and expect it to just happen. But they can keep an open mind about the process, learn where they feel like they will be most happy, and then turn it over to their competant real estate consultant to help them along the way.  Finding the perfect home is not always possible if you are wise and consider location first. But finding one that has almost everything you want is a better goal, especially when you find out where you want to be first.
