Buyers usually put together a list of features they want in a home. But knowing what you DON'T want can be just as important. In other words, what features… or lack therof… would immediately rule out a home for you?


Everyone has different preferences and knowing what you don't want can speed up your buying process… you simply ignore any properties that have deal breakers for you.

Deal breakers could be…

  • Airplanes flying overhead
  • Too many steps
  • Yard size
  • Floor plan
  • Proximity to… coffee shop, work, parks, trails, family, schools, medical, transit, highways, etc
  • View, setting
  • YOUR deal breakers…
