Categorize your wish list according to your priorities.
When buying a house for the first time, it is very tempting to get side-tracked by all the nice features you want for your house to have.
Once you have your budget in mind, start by making a list of those home feature must-haves and rate them according to their priorities.
You don’t need to have everything on your list. As you move into your new house, you’ll have the liberty to add those features later on and more.
