MakaanIQ lists a few steps to manage stress while you hunt for your dream home:

Hire an agent

A real estate agent could do the stressful job of finding the property and negotiate for the best deal. An agent is a great resource if you do not have a background in real estate. Once you zero down the location, let your real estate agent find the best deal for you.    

Must haves v/s nice-to-haves

There could be a situation when a potential property might fulfil your priority needs and other needs. In such a case, prepare a detailed checklist of specifics that you want in your home. And if that potential property fulfils your checklist, you could opt for it.

Attitude does make a difference

When you begin the process of house hunting, it really pays to keep a cool head. Keep your patience with the agent and also the owners in case of resale property.

Expect delays

Even though the final sale deed spells out pretty clearly about the transaction, possession and future payments, there is still a chance of unexpected hindrances.

Factor potential delays in your moving plans.

The home buying process is quite lengthy and it involves various steps to finally get you the keys. Understanding the nuances of realty market and having realistic expectations will add to your advantage in the entire process.
