Buying a new home is an exciting process. A new home is a new beginning. And you don’t get many chances to start over fresh in life.
You can imagine you and your family creating lifelong memories. Overcoming the various obstacles you’ll encounter throughout life. And transforming your house into a home.
All of these ideas “feel” great.
They turn your emotions up to 11.
When emotions guide your decisions, it’s easy to fall in love with a home too quickly — without discussing it with your spouse, agent, or the sellers. And this causes a lot of unnecessary heartbreak.
There have been countless times when a couple checks out their new potential dream home, but they aren’t on the same page.
One falls in love fast, while the other isn’t sold on the house and drags their feet. It can get ugly.
Or, here’s another example of how falling in love too quickly can turn sour:
Couples start looking before taking the necessary steps to commit to buying, like getting pre-qualified.
In both of these cases, the result is the same:
They miss out on their dream forever home. It is so sad every time we watch this play out because there’s a one-in-a-million chance you come across another dream forever home.
That’s why we urge you to avoid falling in love with a house before you're committed to buying it and making sure you’re on the same page as your spouse (and agent).
After losing your favorite house, you’ll feel like you “settled” for the house you end up with.
The good news is this fate is easy to avoid.
Commit before buying by going through all the necessary steps to buy your house. Make sure you and your spouse are on the same page before you look at anything. And most importantly, don’t fall in love with a house too quickly.
