The only thing that can fulfill your dream of home buying is your action. No matter in which phase you are, everything can only be possible through actions. Often your own mind can be your worst enemy. Home buyers over-analyze things and it is a problem. If you are simply finding solutions and answering questions in mind, it won’t help you until you start taking actions.
Inactions result in further inactions and if you act, you prepare yourself to act more. You can build more fear inside your head or you can learn facing it by actions. Many home buyers simply get stuck in a position where they want to figure out things, they want to solve problems, they want to fix things, be it their finances, other responsibilities, problems or anything, they want to do it, but they do nothing to fix the problems. They just think but don’t act. Doing so not only stops you from taking the first step, it actually keeps you in dreams, assumptions, and predictions.
Don’t feel bad if you’re told to act rather than over-analyzing because this is how home ownership works. It is really important to read books, blogs and collect every single piece of information related to real estate deals. But until you start acting and implementing the knowledge you have gained, nothing will work. It is important to keep learning about the market, but at the same time, you should use it. Never stop educating yourself, but make this education a part of the process not the beginning of the home buying process. Treat learning as a part of your journey because it is never ending but your home buying process should not be.
Even if it is about meeting a reliable local real estate developer, agent or someone who knows about the market, do it. Invite them for a coffee or take an appointment and start. Sitting in the office or at home thinking about how to fix things before jumping into the market, jump straight away. No one is going to take money from your pocket and seal a deal. You are and you will be the one who is going to do it.
Fear is something every home buyer deals with, but you should enjoy that fear. It is a sign that you are not going to make foolish mistakes, and you’re well aware. Now it’s time to do it. Don’t run away from fear. Face it, embrace it or lose the opportunities. One thing is very clear that fear will never go away from anyone’s life, it is there to stay, but it depends on you that how you tackle it. Stop dreaming, just start doing it. Home buying is easy. Anyone can buy a home in 2017, but we all know that everyone won’t do it. Fear will stop many people and they will be just fixing problems and keep doing it. Now it’s your turn to choose the side.
