Real estate agents are the first to tell buyers to draw up lists of their needs and wants when embarking on their home searches. From there, it is a matter of prioritizing and comparing until buyers find properties that best match their requirements. On the other hand, some people "just know" when the fit is right. So, should they rely on their "sixth sense"? Well, there may be more to these supposed snap judgments than most realize. According to some research on the matter, "intuition" was defined as something that happens when the brain draws on past experiences and external cues to make a decision. It all happens so fast that some don't believe in it. Trust your intuition!
HINT: There is a difference between an intuitive sense that a house is right and sheer desire. While both may have a strong emotional component, overreaching is usually unrealistic and often disastrous.
