Prevent Buyer’s Remorse When Shopping for a House
Buyer’s remorse; we all experience this from time to time. Perhaps it was the convertible that seats two because you wanted it, only to realize a month later that you cannot even go grocery shopping in it. Maybe it was the neon green patent leather Kate Spade stilettos that matched the dress you bought to wear to your baby shower that you later realized are just hideous. It’s one thing to realize your car or shoes are not really functional, but you certainly do not want to realize that the home you purchased is not exactly what you thought it was. These three tips might help you prevent buyer’s remorse on the biggest purchase of your life.
Get the Secondary Inspection
One of the biggest mistakes homebuyers make and one of the biggest reasons they experience buyer’s remorse is the fact that they do not take advantage of the secondary inspections they are advised to have. Buyer’s remorse is going to happen after you turn down that secondary inspection only to realize that it would have located the $5,000 cost of repairing that leaking roof prior to purchasing the home. Now you’re out $5,000.
