Buying a Home Can Be Stressful – Let Me Help!
There are many things that can cause you stress when buying a home in today’s market. Some examples are saving enough money for the down payment, worrying about rising interest rates, concern about paying too much, anxious that the Sellers have the leverage….
A recent study by Owners.com indicated that 72% of prospective buyers deal with this stress. Do you know what the top reasons are? This was what respondents said:
1. Losing Earnest Money Deposit
2. Becoming “House Poor”
3. “Bidding Wars”
The third one on that list is particularly applicable to our DFW market – recently, with the high home prices and low inventory, there has been a major increase in competition in our area. Not only are bidding wars a concern but the fast-pace of the market also causes many buyers to make quick decisions and that can lead to second-guessing…another stress.
