Finding the Perfect Home – How Picky Are You?

Are you a dedicated homebuyer? The Wallstreet Journal found a California woman who practically made it a part-time job to view homes in Marin County, CA in order to find her dream home. Most of us don’t have that kind of time, but former United Press International reporter Lidia Pringle viewed over 298 homes in a two-year period before eventually deciding on a $5.9 million home in Tiburon.

On average, most homebuyers visit 10-12 homes before deciding on a home to purchase, according to the National Association of Realtors. The turning point in Pringle’s search was owed significantly to the instable housing market of early 2009 and the lower prices which resulted.

One must wonder though, could some of her trouble have been avoided with the help of a reliable and thorough realtor?
