Don’t blame the listing price, money saving habits or your luxury lifestyle, these things are not stopping you from buying a house. There’s something more that prevents people from owning their dream house. Fears in mind make people unable to act, and here you are going to read about the fears which are not letting you move into your own house.
- Fear of buying
Everyone wants to buy a house, but not everyone is buying. We know many friends who always speak about buying a house. They look confident about closing a deal as soon as they get their finances on track, but are they actually doing it? Your willingness to buy a home gets affected by your fears. You are afraid of choosing the wrong property, you are afraid of taking new responsibilities. You are afraid of taking your discussions with a real estate developer to the next level. Everyone you meet knows that you are looking for a house, but what they don’t know is that you are afraid, and in fact you also don’t know this. Why does it happen? Long story short -you are not realistic about your needs. You don’t know your needs beyond the number of bedrooms, interiors and the imaginary lifestyle. Come back to the reality and make a realistic approach for everything that comes on the way.
- You’ve become a fortune teller
When buying a house or thinking about taking relationship decisions, we think about things which are beyond our control. We try to see the future, not what’s just next to us. We skip what’s next and focus on what can happen after 5 years or 10 years and predict things according to our present conditions. Thinking about future is undoubtedly a great way to remove obstacles, but when you turn yourself into a fortune teller, you don’t overcome challenges, you create obstacles in your imaginary world. You think about problems that don’t even exist and such thoughts turn out to be the major roadblocks on your way to buying a home.
- You fear loss
Life is not permanent. The art of homebuying cannot be learned in philosophy classes, of course. But the fear of loss makes you unable to plan and act. It makes you immovable. You feel that you will buy a wrong property and regret. How long can you delay? Are you not losing the opportunities you are missing every day? The real loss is what you lose every day and not what you are losing in your imaginary world. Think about it. Those living in rented houses are losing money every month. Those who have parked their money in bank are losing the benefits they can get from a wise investment.
- You are afraid to bring in the professionals
Believe it or not, you do need real estate agents, a trustworthy developer, financial advisers and other professionals. You need people who make you follow a strict routine and want you to be in discipline because they want you to develop the right strategy, understand the agreement and even offer advice as to which of your chosen property they feel might suit you. However, it’s important to remember that professionals can only advise. It’s completely up to you to decide how to make things happen.
- You’re afraid of financial problems
If you feel that you are not financially strong enough to manage buying a property, follow these two solutions. First you educate yourself enough about how homebuying and mortgages work. There are numerous guides available on the subject. Second, if you’re still not sure, get a fixed long-term home loan plan. There are many foolproof ways to overcome the fears. All you need to do is to take strong steps and follow the above mentioned tips.
