Find Your Dream Home

Wish vs. Need

One of the most important steps a first-time home buyer can take is figuring out the difference between features in their dream home that they wish was in their first home compared to what they actually need to be in their first home.

What's the difference between a Wish List and a Need List?

While every Albuquerque home buyer is different, there are some basic items that would be considered a need:

  • Minimum number of bedrooms
  • Minimum number of bathrooms
  • Minimum amout of square footage
  • A garage
  • Location to your work, school or family.

These needs are items in your new home that would make living without virtually impossible. They also are usualy structural features about the home that cannot be changed.

For comparison, here are some common wish list items. Can you spot the difference between this list and the Needs List?

  • Two fireplaces
  • Crown molding
  • All tile floors
  • Decorator wall colors
  • Ceiling fans
