If it feels good, do it!


The average buyer has about ten items on their wish list when they look for a home or condo:

1. Price
2. Location
3. Number of Bedrooms
4. Number of Bathrooms
5. Amenities
6. Views
7. Finishes
8. Layout
9. Style
10. And…..the X factor

Unless your budget is limitless, you will not find the “perfect” home.  While most buyers and agents focus on number one on the list as the starting point, it is usually number ten that seals the deal. Buying a home is largely an irrational act, and driven by an emotional connection to the property. So, to make the search easier, perhaps you should focus more on how you feel about the home and less about how it conforms to the other list of requirements.

About tylerlaird
Having been born and raised in Ottawa, this city is more than my home, it is a part of who I am and the basis from which all other cities must be compared. I have watched it grow and progress in its size and over time I found myself naturally drawn to the different neighbourhoods, with their varying characters, layouts and styles. After earning a BA in Law from Carleton University, Tyler discovered a new passion, real estate. In 2010, he began to use his passion for Ottawa’s various housing styles and diverse neighbourhoods, to help many people find that place that they can call home.
