Can You Compromise?
Buying a new home is about compromise.
Often it’s because the perfect home you desire does not exist, or is not something you can afford. There are trade-offs with every home, and deciding what you are willing to give up vs. what you are not is usually a tough choice. Some buyers have a very tough time making this decision. And as a first timer you may find this especially hard to do.
Compromise also is necessary when there is more than one person involved in the decision making, and the parties do not agree on what they are looking for in a new home, or the merits of particular houses. Certain characteristics of homes may be more important to some folks than others. And occasionally very small issues become huge ones!
So be prepared for needing to compromise. How do you resolve such issues in your daily life? Are you willing to let go of certain desires in order to achieve the overall goal of home-ownership?
