shopping for a new home can be overwhelming, especially if you've never done it before. But don't worry, we're here to help. In this article, we'll take you through everything you need to know about shopping for a new home, from finding the right location to getting the best deal possible.

The first step in shopping for a new home is to figure out what you can afford. Take a look at your budget and see how much you can realistically spend on a new home. Once you have a number in mind, you can start looking for homes in your price range.

The next step is to find the right location. You'll want to consider things like the commute to work, the quality of the schools in the area, and the overall safety of the neighborhood. Once you've narrowed down your search to a few neighborhoods, you can start visiting open houses.

At an open house, you'll be able to see the inside of the home and get a feel for the layout. Pay attention to things like the condition of the floors and walls, the size of the rooms, and the overall flow of the house. If you have any questions, be sure to ask the real estate agent.

Once you've found a few homes that you like, it's time to start negotiating. The goal is to get the best deal possible on your new home. The first step is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage. This will give you an idea of how much money you can borrow and what interest rate you'll be paying.

Next, you'll need to make an offer on the home. The real estate agent will help you with this, but it's important to remember that you're not obligated to accept the first offer that you receive. If you're not happy with the terms of the offer, you can always counter-offer.

The last step in the process is to close on the home. This is when you'll sign all of the paperwork and officially become the new owner. Congratulations! You've just purchased your new home.

very pretty I like the gold I like the

cream color

I like that


y'all just jumped up into the truck and

I ripped my pants


if they rip anymore they're gonna go all

the way down here I am so bummed I

really like these but they're really old

that's probably why they ripped


and we were gonna go to one more store

but now I feel like my pants are gonna

rip open

so quick update before we take off loved

Ikea it's just so much like it's a lot

to look at very very overwhelming I feel

like there was so much to do


and it's almost like you need to go in

there with a list like you need to plan

out what you're going to buy before you

go in there because

it's just really overwhelming and it's

like you can't figure out how to get out

it's such a long walk it feels like and

I don't like the buggies it's the only

things I got to say about it I don't

like the buggy um I love Ikea love it

I'm so happy we went I'll definitely

come back but the buggy situation

not for me I'll definitely like bring a

stroller even though I don't have babies

I think a stroller would have been a lot

nicer because I could not control that

buggy to save my life I put the kids in

it and we were going all over the place

they were drifting through the store huh

yeah but we're gonna go ahead and head

out now we're gonna hit one more store

we gotta grab a few things for Dylan for

Christmas so I'll let the kids pick out

some stuff for him

and probably grab some lunch are you

eating that old biscuit

okay let's go one more thing

the kids bedroom set

um like the actual like Furniture itself

is really nice and we may come back

eventually to get Maya some like a

bedroom set or something I think that

would be nice

we built you a bed you don't need a bed

I built you a bed remember

yeah you have a nice bed sister needs a

actual I think it'd be cool to get you

one of the bunk bed ones with the desk

would you like that


okay but you're gonna get rid of your

old bed in order to get that one

yeah I know


I know


you don't want to get rid of your bed

now to get a new bed no

no have okay well I'm glad that you're

happy with what you've got I love that

I don't know how to pronounce it but

whatever is in this place food wise it

smells so good y'all don't smell that do

you are you getting a whiff of it it

smells so good and then we got stuck at

a train

it's going backwards

chewy people yeah it does that's an

Amtrak that one carries people

but I want to eat here this place smells


no it looks like it's a fancy restaurant

darling we're not very fancy right now

and I've ripped a hole in my pants I

can't go in there

okay so now I am running to Subway with

the kids we're gonna go get some lunch

um and I just gotta say uh shout out to

everyone who came up to me and said

hello today

at the stores I feel like

I'm not gonna lie I get like super


um not on purpose I just don't know what

to say I like panic I go into straight

panic mode so if you came up to me and

said hello thank you for that sorry I

acted like really weird if I did act

weird I don't know but I appreciate you

guys so much

okay so we are home now we had a great

day oh my gosh had a great day it was

very busy though we're all tired the

kids are having quiet time and I am

going to show you guys what we got real


um so first off was Ikea Ikea is awesome

I am kind of sad that I haven't went

before I don't know why it took me so

long to go but I loved it they have

really affordable furniture so much to

look at so much inspiration to see like

I don't know every little setup that

they had was just different and it was

really cool to see and I I really Thrive

off um stuff like that seeing other

people's homes and the way that they've

styled them it just gets my creative

Wheels going and I had a blast I will

definitely be going back especially by

myself when I can kind of just take a

little bit more time in each space and

really take it all in

um so it was fun the one thing I will

say is that the carts there are a pain

in the butt next time I go I might just

bring my own wagon or like a buggy or

not a buggy a stroller because I was

struggling with their carts I like we

were drifting

I could not keep control of it like it

sounds dumb but the wheels at the front

spin along with the back wheels and it

is just like I mean we were all over the

place and once the kids got in the buggy

because they got tired of walking it was

game over I literally I had to pull it

because if I tried to push it we were

going this way when I was trying to go

straight and then at one point I'm

holding it pulling it and then the kids

just start drifting this way it was

it was chaos but we did have a great



anyway let me show you what I did end up

getting I didn't get the bookcases there

by the way which I'll explain in a

minute but I'll show you what I got so I

got two little train kits these are

really awesome

um I think these are great gifts my kids

love these so

I feel like the trains themselves are

hard to find little magnetic ones and

then these came with a little train set

so I went ahead and grabbed them I

really really like

these a lot I think it's just great for

the kids to play and build their own

track so I got one for my niece for

Christmas and I got one for the kids

I also grabbed some new pillow covers

for the couch pillows we

um I love to have couch pillows but I

get tired of them quick like I'll get

bored of the print and the color and all

that in the style next thing you know I

end up putting them up and then I bring

them out and then I find new ones that I

like and I end up buying a whole pillow


honestly sometimes it's cheaper just to

buy a whole new pillow than it is to buy

the pillow covers even on Amazon I've

looked on every time I buy a pillow

cover from Amazon by the way the zipper

breaks every time never fails the first

time I wash them they're done so I ended

up seeing these and I grabbed them I

thought these would be nice either in

the living room or even for my bedroom

they are like beige and then it has like

a gray stripe on them on them I really

like them and they're 20 by 20s and I

already have the pillows to put these on

so love that

and then I grabbed this blanket I

grabbed this originally for the kids to

kind of like rest their head on while we

were in the shopping cart but it was on

sale so I went ahead and bought it

anyway it was really nice because

it's only 7.99 and it's super soft it's


it's just

the softest I don't know how to explain

softness but it's just really soft trust

me I wish you could feel it but you

cannot but it's nice it was only 7.99

and I really liked it I liked the color


so I got that um let me show you what I

got from Burlington okay

so all this stuff is for my husband for

Christmas the kids wanted to go and pick

out some stuff so I was there just to

kind of help guide them a little bit

make sure they were getting the right

size the right colors stuff like that

um so first thing they got were these

little manicure sets

oops so we got that that's one of

Dylan's gifts

we got him the Calvin Klein Obsession

for Men

he loves cologne by the way absolutely

loves it I don't wear perfume I don't

like like since I've told you this a

million times but my husband is a

cologne fanatic he always smells amazing

and I always say he smells good for both

of us because I just I cannot

um and this was only 26 dollars there

this is expensive and I feel like that

was a great great deal

my dumb butt

I just realized it's aftershave it's not

even cologne

I thought it was like spray cologne

what the heck

oh well we got him aftershave

and then I got

okay this is the this is actually spray

thank goodness the Nautica Blue this is

my favorite I love this scent so I got

him a new one of those because he is

almost out

and then

um Caden picked out a Levi wallet so

that was really cute we were at the

register and we happened to see it just

like a plain old wallet


I had the kids grab this because he

always has trouble with his feet his

feet are always sore his back's always

hurting and I know that your feet kind

of control all of that most of the time

and these were only 7.99 there so we got

him some insoles for his boots

and then we got a

sweatshirt like a pullover sweatshirt

this was on sale for 11.99

and to go with that

to get him a new pair of


so that'll just be like a little lounge

around the house outfit y'all know he

always wears his sweatpants and comfy


so that's what he got for Christmas from

the kids and then I got the two

bookshelves from Target I got the

bookshelves from Target instead of IKEA


the bookshelves at Ikea are a little bit


like they're just they're smaller and

they don't look the best quality to be

honest like they're the Billy bookcase

that everyone always talks about I

thought it was going to be a lot better

quality than these but it's just not I

mean I can even say that I have two of

them in my closet currently I love I

think when was this um the room

essentials by Target these are just good

quality bookcases and

comparing the two visually I felt like

these were a lot better deal they're

actually cheaper than the ones at Ikea

and they look better

in person too so I got two of those and

they will go on either side of my


starting that project soon

um I gotta like build them or I gotta

build these and then I gotta build a

frame trim them all out make them custom

all that so that'll be the plan for the

fireplace over there

I'm probably gonna wait for that until

after Christmas though because I don't

want to like start and like destroy my

living room right before Christmas

because that would not be great

gotta make sure that we get through

Christmas first and then I'll I'll start

that project but I hope you guys enjoyed

hanging out over the past couple hours

with me I really appreciate it or like

past 30 minutes

um I had a great time today and I hope

you enjoyed seeing like Ikea and all of


um but I appreciate you guys watching so

much I hope you have an amazing rest of

your day and I'll see you in my next one

bye y'all
