Buying a home in El Cajon in today’s market can be challenging, homes in El Cajon in general sell quickly. So in order for you as a home buyer to be able to compete and get your dream home you should have a set of requirements for the home you want to purchase which can be accomplished by making a list of things you would like to have in your new home.

To give you an example of the benefit of having a home wish list, think about your grocery shopping list, when you go to the store and you have a list with you; you know exactly what you need just by looking at your list which will make your shopping at the store easier and done in a short amount of time. Same thing applies when buying a home, if you have your home wish list it will make your search easier, less stressful and save you a lot of time and money, most importantly you will only look at houses that meets your needs.  

What to include in your wish list is up to you, I always recommend to my clients to start with the basics like area you want to be in, type of house (condo or detached home), price, number of bedrooms and baths, etc.

Sample home wish list:

City: El Cajon

Nieboghrhood: Garnite Hills

House style: 1 Story

Bedrooms: 3 +

Bathrooms: 2+

Square Footage: 1200+

Price range: 450K – 500K
