Helping Buyers Through Emotional Decisions

Buying a home can be an emotionally draining process. Your home is where you will create family traditions and memories that will last a lifetime. So choosing the right property is a big decision that may add pressure. To combat these negative emotions you need to choose the right real estate agent to guide you and support you throughout the process.
When we sit down with clients, we learn what matters most to them. We try to get a sense of their lifestyle and make a list of their non-negotiables. Learning about their needs helps to narrow down the list of houses. This ensures we find their dream home quickly and efficiently.
Emotions can lead clients to pay more for the property than they can realistically afford. One of the first things we talk about is the budget. We want to ensure clients find themselves in the best position where they understand the average selling price in a specific neighbourhood that they are looking at.
Bidding wars are common in today’s society. Sellers are people too and it is easy for them to become emotional in the process. We believe that a personal touch can go a long way, especially in negotiations.
This is the way we were once able to secure our client's dream home. Our clients wrote a letter to the homeowner explaining the wife's connection to the property (she had grown up a couple of doors down and had actually swum in their pool). There were multiple offers of the same price, but our clients were able to secure the property partly because of that letter.
At the end of the day, whether you are buying or selling, you may find yourself making emotional decisions. Work with someone who will help you through these emotional times.
