Finding The Perfect Home In Seminole, FL

December 1, 2016 by The727Team


One of the best things about being a real estate agent in Pinellas County is I get to live in a beautiful area, and help people find their perfect home.

It’s easy to get caught up in the mindset that it’s just a few walls and a roof…

The truth is… every home truly does have a certain energy about it, and sometimes you just have to go with your gut.

The Beginning Of Searching For A Home

As I’ve found by working with many different people, I’ve noticed some similar behaviors when people first start home shopping.  There’s usually a lot of excitement, nervousness, and overall just an unknown element of what to expect.

This is especially true when working with first time home buyers…

Education and transparency is so vital at the beginning.  My job as a good realtor in Seminole, FL and Pinellas County is to create a clear path to success, and arm my buyers with the resources and support they’ll need to get the best deal.

Home Shopping = Self-Discovery

The buyers that ultimately found their perfect home in Seminole, Florida were a pleasure to work with. As first time home buyers, we started mapping out what were the most important factors to them in owning a home.

They weren’t 100% sure if they wanted to live in St Petersburg or live closer to their jobs in Seminole and Largo, so we started looking in both areas.  As we visited the first few homes, I told my clients to both give a rating from 1-10 on how they felt about the home, 10 being the best.

As simple of a strategy as this was, it created good dialogue between me and them.  As a couple, they were able to see some of their differences, and come to a meeting of the minds on what was most important to them.

Not every real estate showing results in someone instantly finding a home and sometimes I’ve noticed there can be concern if that doesn’t happen.

No matter how well you think you know yourself, home shopping always allows for a little self-discovery.

Understanding The Energy Of A Home

After looking at their first few homes, I reminded my clients that when they stepped into the right home, there was a good chance they would know within the first 10 seconds.  I later learned that one of my clients practiced energy work and she explained to me in detail how you can pick up on the energy of a house.

From the moment you walk in, the way it is setup, how light or dark it is, the smell, the feeling, and any of the sensations are all important.  At the end of the day, if you are occupying the home, you’ve got to live with it, and it’s crucial that you feel good about your choice.

The Perfect Home In Seminole, FL

As time went on, it took a couple of months by keeping an eye on new homes coming on the market and experiencing different areas.  My clients became more knowledgable on the market and understanding of how the process works, especially when it came to timing.

When we walked into the home, shortly after exploring it, my prediction came true. It was a 10 out of 10 for them on our rating system and it had immediately drawn them in right from the beginning. The energy was good in the house and you could tell a lot of hard work had been put into rehabbing it.

It was in a sense the perfect home… not because it was perfect by design, but it was perfect because it was the right fit for them at the right time.
