How To Avoid Buyer’s Remorse

The excitement of buying a new home is indescribable.  You spend all of your time going over all the details of each and every possible home  that is suitable for you.  Then you actually find a home that you just love.  After spending a great amount of time thinking about your dream home, you make an offer.   Then it happens, you get that call from your realtor –  your offer has been accepted.  All of a sudden the reality that you just bought a home hits you like a ton of bricks!

Buyers have different reactions the that “Oh My Gosh, I Just Bought A House” feeling and understandably so.  Buying a home is a BIG decision.  Many  people begin to have second thoughts about their decision.  Did I do the right thing?  Can I afford this?  What if something happens?  How much money did I just spend?  Can I come up with the down payment?  How much are the closing costs going to be?   Etc.

You feel like your life is going to be changed forever.  You think that you will never again be able to live the life that you currently have  – enjoying eating at a restaurant, going to the movies whenever you feel like it,  having a shopping spree.  You think your entertainment budget has been shot out the door!  Then you get the dreaded truth in lending statement and you see just exactly how much your mortgage including the interest will be over 30 years and you are shocked and dismayed.  You think “what have I done?”

Sit down and relax.  Millions of people buy new homes every day and get through it with no problems.  Don’t worry, what you are feeling is normal and you will be glad to know that it is temporary.   This too shall pass.   You will adjust your lifestyle and things will be back to normal before you know it.

Try to replace all of those negative feelings with positive ones like – imagining yourself sitting in your new home, enjoying your new life.  Picture how well your new home suits your family’s needs.    Think about all of the things that you will have in your new home that you don’t have in your current home.   Give it time, you will get the hang of it.

If you still have those “Buyers Blues” then call your realtor immediately.  Your real estate agent has years of experience helping their clients through the home buying process from start to finish and they will be more than happy to help you with anything you need.  So remember, these feelings are normal.  Then go relax and enjoy yourself.  Go and eat at your favorite restaurant or do a little shopping; whatever it takes to rid yourself of the buyers blues and before you know it you will be sitting in your new home wondering why you ever had any doubts!
