The emotions that come with buying a home can overwhelm the logic you’d otherwise apply to a big-ticket purchase.

The sentimental factors can make the whole process seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Once you’re aware of the emotional pulls of the house hunt — think how staging affects your perception of a house for sale — you’ll be better equipped to prioritize essential, logical factors. After all, paint trends come and go — but location and square footage are forever.

In the video above, Life and Money by Citi teamed up with Vox to help prospective buyers ask the essential questions before buying a home, to help make sure that home really feels like home.
