What Do You Say?

Posted in House Hunting,Psychological Stuff,What do I Buy? by Jeff Dowler on July 4, 2007

You probably are getting lots of questions from friends and family who know you are house hunting.

So what do you say when they ask you “how is your house hunting going?”

Are you able to tell them the truth? Do you really know how it’s going? And how do you feel about how it’s going?

Has it been a positive experience for you thus far?Are you learning alot? Have you made headway regarding what you want and would like to buy? Or is that still not clear to you?

Are you feeling that it is not going well but don’t want to admit it? And if it isn’t why do you feel that way? Are you frustrated? Worried that you will never find what you want to buy? Having trouble deciding, or afraid to make that big decision?

This is all very normal, and everyone goes through these thoughts and questions at different times when buying a home. And with different answers.

I think being asked the question “how is your house hunting going” is a great one, since it forces you to think about the process, where you are with it, and to make changes as needed so that you can move forward in the right direction.  And to get help from your agent (depending on the issues) to address problem areas (like not finding the type of home you like, needing to explore other communities, and so on).

Have a great holiday!!
