The typical anxieties include: finances, relationship issues, not getting your multiple Americanos on time before going to the office…you know, the usual.
Homes.com released a bombshell of a statistic regarding the biggest stressor currently for Americans: buying a home.
Here’s their breakdown:
- 33% of homebuyers had at least one moment of shedding tears during the home-buying process.
- 38% of homebuyers were surprised at the length of the process
- 13% of homebuyers believed they overpaid for their new home
- 28% felt devastated after losing property that they put a contract in for
- Only 1 in 5 homebuyers felt confident with their decision making
Apparently buyer’s remorse is a legitimate thing.
Avoid the Anxiety
Do your research.
Don’t be afraid to speak up and be as honest as you can with your real estate agent.
Understand that buying a home takes time and requires patience and obviously, money. Acquire a nice little nest egg before making the big leap.
By being prepared, you will be able to jump aboard with confidence when making an offer on a home that feels right for you. Because when you purchase a home, frankly, you should be thrilled – not distressed.
