Buying real estate is a matter of the head and the heart. Of course, you need to rationally assess a house's value and estimate a price range that you're comfortable with. But don't neglect the emotional side. If you fall in love with a neighborhood and decide that's where you want to live, chances are you won't be happy with a home that meets all your criteria but is located far away from your dream location. On the other hand, buying simply on the basis of emotion and ignoring logical concerns, could lead to stressful times down the line. So it's a matter of balancing rational and emotional decisions. And your Turnage agent can help you weigh both sides.
