Paying for Airbnb for a week or two lets you test drive a house.

I was talking with a client yesterday, and they were telling me about all the things they want in their next house. I asked them if they were sure that was what they wanted, and they said yes. This reminded me of something that happened years ago when I had a medical situation, and my wife and I sold our house. I could barely work, and we ended up having to figure out where to live.

“It was an amazing gift to be able to test drive taking care of a property.”

I had a friend that let us live in one of his listings. The investor said it was fine, and I got to essentially test drive this house. The house was exactly what I thought I wanted. However, after spending six months there, I realized I didn’t want it.

It was an amazing gift to be able to test drive taking care of a property. When we finally bought a house, we bought something different from what we originally thought we wanted. To test drive a house, try Airbnb because the cost to stay in one for a week or two to test drive a neighborhood, layout, or style versus buying a house and figuring out later that it wasn’t right is worth it.

If you have questions about strategy and making sure that you are making a smart move, please reach out to me. I’d love to hear from you.
