Paying for Airbnb for a week or two lets you test drive a house.
Recently, a client of mine was telling me about all the features they wanted to see 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.
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 experience taking care of a property. When we finally bought a house, we bought something different from what we originally thought we wanted. Use Airbnb to test drive a house because staying in a home for a week or two to try out the neighborhood, layout, or style is way cheaper than buying a house and figuring out later that it wasn’t right for you.
If you have questions about strategy and or ensuring that you make a smart move, please reach out to me. I’d love to hear from you.
