How long do you think it should take to find the perfect home for you? There are as many answers to this question as there are people out there looking for their perfect home! 

Buying a home is a process and buyers approach that process in their own unique way.  There really isn't a one-fits-all approach. 

I have worked with clients that have very simple and clear-cut needs, look at one house and make an offer. I have other clients whose lives that are in transition and it might take them months or even a few years to find a home that fits their needs. The house they think they need today might not be the house that will work for them in the long run.

I always try to stress to my clients...
