How much house do you want?

Imagine you wanted to buy a house. What if you called up a realtor and said, “I’d like to buy a house. How much does one cost?”

The realtor would hesitate for a second and then say, “Well, gee, I don’t know.”

Then, to determine whether it’s a bungalow or mansion you’re looking for, the realtor would start asking questions like:

• How many bedrooms?
• What type of neighborhood?
• Move-in ready or a fixer-upper?

At some point, he or she would also ask if you had a budget in mind.
