Frankly, my dear, Buying a Home is Stressful

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.
