Finding the right luxury home in Oakville is easy, just let us help! When you pick The Goodale Miller Team you get the expertise to find your dream home. Here we’re going to go over some tips that will help you figure out what kind of home will suit you best. Luxury homes don’t have to be traditional; you can make them whatever you want them to be and you don’t always have to pay the luxury price either. Finding the right Oakville luxury home is all about who you know, and we know everybody.

Don’t Choose a Home Because of the Decorating

Emotional buying is one of the leading reasons for buying remorse, don’t let this be you! Home staging is there to make you want to buy, but look beyond the window dressing. Can you see all of your stuff fitting inside this house; do you have too few or too many possessions for this space? Is the lighting awkward? Is the yard what you want? Is it so highly customized that you’ll have difficulties down the road trying to sell it?

Is it What You Want, What You Need, or Both?

Striking the balance between your wants and your needs for your Oakville luxury home is important. What you may want today may change tomorrow, but needs rarely do. Fixtures are a good example; newer construction gets a bit chintzy with golden shiny finish fixtures. Will the extra glitz now last through the next ten years or will you have to completely replace all of the fixtures and lighting before then?  Try to balance your wants and your needs before putting in a bid.

Expensive Isn’t Always Better

Just because a home is the priciest on the block doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best. We’ll help you go over comparable homes in the same area so you know you’re getting the best of the best. You should look over what each offers (floor plan, kitchen and bathroom amenities, yards, lighting, etc.) so you can make sure that you’re getting the right Oakville real estate. It’s important to make sure that you’ve found the one, and not just another one!

Is the Neighbourhood the Right One for You?

Before you buy any home you should go out and walk around the neighbourhood or community. See if it has the things that matter to you nearby. Maybe you’re a young professional who wants to walk everywhere and enjoys nightlife and movies on the weekend. Maybe you’re interested in health and fitness and want to take your children to nearby parks and fitness center. These are the kinds of amenities that can make or break your dream home, so don’t be afraid to walk around and explore.

The last thing you should do is try and find a luxury home on your own. There are so many beautiful homes that just aren’t listed. Let us help, we’ll use our connections as Oakville real estate agents to get you a beautiful home.
