Most of the time, first-time home buyers I work with go through many ups and downs. They’ll fall in love with the first house they see and we’ll go to put in an offer only to be beat out by a better one.
That’s OKAY. In fact, it’s pretty normal. It’s important to remember throughout the buying process that you shouldn’t get too emotionally attached to a home before the dotted line is signed.
Also, you’ll have to compromise a lot and I mean A LOT on your personal Wishlist. Let’s face it, you’re not going to get a home with a backyard jacuzzi, built-in home theater, and 7 bedrooms at $150k. Set realistic goals and expectations.
