5 Tips to Finding a Home for The Holidays
The holidays are right around the corner, and we know that a new home has been on your wish list for quite some time!
2020 has been a wild ride, and we know things haven’t turned out exactly how you thought, but this year isn’t over yet, and there is still time to find the perfect home before the holidays hit.
Picture waking up Christmas morning and gathering with the family in your glorious new living room. Presents, wrapping paper, and stockings are sprawled around the giant room while you take in the magic of the holidays and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with your significant other. It’s all so perfect, and it’s also within reach with the help of BSR Realty Group.
Here are five tips to help you find the perfect home for the holidays.
1. Decide Where You Want To Live
Step one: if you want to move, find a place to move to. Think about the different neighborhoods, counties, and developments that you want to live in and get the area’s background beforehand. Do your research now, so you don’t have to worry down the road when searching for a home with a great school district or a house next to the beach.
2. Find The Best Realtor in Palm Beach County

3. Gather Your Paperwork
Make sure your paperwork is ready to prevent any hiccups in the home buying process. Gather your pay stubs, W2s, loan statements, IDs, and other documents and store them in a foldable paperwork organizer or document folder. This will ensure that everything is in one place and prevent the time it takes to dig around and find what you’re looking for when the time comes.
4. Communicate & Be Disciplined
There are a lot of ins-and-outs to the home buying process. Be transparent, ask questions, take notes, and be focused on the task at hand: getting you into a new home in an efficient, timely fashion. Make this task a top priority, even with the craziness of the holidays. Respond to emails diligently, and keep everything organized for a streamlined process. With these efforts, you’ll feel less stressed, and you will have a handle on everything.
5. Start Planning Your Move
You’re in the home-stretch! Arrange your movers, pack those boxes, and schedule your utilities for their start dates. While the closing may take time and effort, you can remove some tasks off your plate by arranging the actual moving portion of the buying process ahead of time. Involve the kids and make a game out of cleaning out their closets and packing their bags. Host a yard sale to free up some space in the moving truck. Get things done so you can focus on enjoying your new home as soon as the deal is closed!
Don’t spend the rest of this year wishing you pulled the trigger on a new home. Make an effort to find your new home now so you can have the picture-perfect Christmas morning that you have been dreaming of. The best part? BSR Realty Group is here to help.
