The Upside of Buyer Heart Break
So, you've been looking at houses online, hopefully working directly with a professional real estate agent... and otherwise staying off certain national sites that like to take your information, sell it to whatever random agent has bought that particular zipcode and got your business only by spamming your email, phone and text.
But... we digress.
So you've been looking at houses online, and decided that there's ONE IN PARTICULAR THAT WOULD BE PERFECT.
The layout (from what you can tell)!
The colors look fantastic...
The yard looks well kept...
The appliances are new or at least recent...
EVERYTHING IS PERFECT.
So, you arrive there and it hit's you:
Something. Anything. Everything... is a no-go. The house is not only NOT perfect for you (or even close), but just absolutely would not work out now that you're standing inside it (or even sometimes before you've even walked in if you really hate the neighborhood or otherwise the location that would make your commute unbearable).
That sinking feeling of heartbreak feels awful, we know it does. But in all honesty, it's the reality of "online window shopping" for a home. Our hopes, dreams, and ideals (from what's inside the home to what you may want your monthly payment to stay under) can be rocked to their foundation when you think you've found that Perfect House, and you figure out it's not what you thought it was going to be.
The good news is.... buying a home is, and should be, a learning experience!
Heartbreak is just another rung on the ladder to get where you're going: Your TRULY Perfect House.
