Iʼm here to save you pain, buyers. There are myths about the home shopping
experience that must be addressed. I like to make the home buying experience as
stress-free as possible, so please hear me out on these three big myths about home
buying:
Myth #1: “That house has been on the market so long I bet we can work the
seller down easily.”
Not necessarily. Exceptionally high days on market could mean almost anything. The
seller could be bullheaded about their price. The seller may not be particularly
motivated to sell for emotional or other personal reasons. Donʼt forget: A sales-weary
seller isnʼt likely to respond to your host of rational reasons why their house should be
a bargain.
Myth #2: “I want to look at foreclosed homes because theyʼre a real bargain and
the banks need to unload them.”
Banks, like entrenched sellers, donʼt always make decisions which seem rational
based on obvious information. You can have a hard time divining the reason a bank
chooses to reject an offer for a foreclosed or distressed property, and their decision
may be based on financials which seem counterintuitive. The truth is, many distressed
sales can be longer and more fraught than regular sales.
Myth #3: “I liked this house a lot, but with this market, I bet it will still be there if I
decide to buy it.”
Itʼs very, very painful to see a client love a home but fail to make a move to purchase
that home. If you fell in love with it, why wouldnʼt someone else? Just because a
property has been on the market a little while doesnʼt mean it will stay on the market.
The bonus myth in this one? Your “perfect” home is probably going to be a home with
some small compromises. If you donʼt make an offer on a home, youʼre effectively
saying, “Iʼm comfortable losing this home.”
My job as an agent is to represent your interests and do my best to protect you along
the way. If youʼre pursuing a home purchase in the near future, please get in touch.
