Short on time to find your dream home? No need to worry. Here are a few tips to help you on your journey to find that perfect, or almost perfect Napa home for sale without getting too frazzled.

Narrow down your focus: What kind of neighborhood would you like to live in? What type of house are you searching for? Do you need to be near a park or school? The more specific your focus, the more time you’ll have to use looking at homes with your Napa realtor that fits your desires.

Get your mortgage pre-approved: Speak with your mortgage lender right away about getting pre-approved. This will alleviate the stress of finances as you’ll know ahead of time what you’re able to afford, and you can make an offer quick on that beautiful Napa home for sale you have your eye on. Plus, having finances in hand reassures the seller that you are serious about your offer.

Have a flexible schedule: Took a drive and found the perfect home? Don’t hesitate on booking a view with your Napa realtor. Schedule it right away. You don’t want to take the chance of missing out on this opportunity because the time slot to view the house might be a little awkward with your weekly schedule. It’s for your schedule to be inconvenienced during this home-buying season.

Be open-minded: More likely than not, there are amazing Napa homes for sale on the market right now, that just about meet your goals for your dream house and property. Don’t turn down an almost perfect home just because it doesn’t check off your whole list. Consider the possibilities and see if a few renovations can make it perfect.

Be notified about new listings: Stay ahead of the game and get alerted with new listings as soon as they come onto the market. This will help you be one of, if not, the first to schedule a viewing with your Napa realtor and possibly even the first to put down an offer.
