Buying A Home: An Emotional, Not Just Practical, Journey {Infographic}

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC

 

Buying A Home Is An Emotional Journey

Buying a home is for many people the single largest financial investment decision they make in their lifetimes... no doubt making this decision is not just a "practical" one, but also an emotional decision. NewHomeSource has provided a terrific infographic (see below) outlining the steps involved in making the emotional and practical journey towards home ownership. And while this infographic focuses on steps involved in deciding on new construction, the reality is that these are the very same steps home buyers need to make if they are buying a resale home.

 

If you've been searching for a home and finding yourself getting emotional, don't worry! It's normal! And if you've made sure to work with an experienced Realtor®, he or she will help you with both the emotional and practical aspects of the journey.

Endre Barath, Jr. ~ hi Endre...it's easy to forget, when we do this day in and day out, that lots of emtions are involved where our clients are concerned. And it's important to validate those emotions.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, ~ good morning, Paul... it's emotional all-around these days, I think... buyers get emotional because they lose in bidding wars; sellers because their homes sell fast... the process is always stressful at the best of times, but these days it's crazy out there.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson ~ hi Sally... just as we tell sellers that when they decide to sell they need to think of their home as just a house for sale, buyers need to look at houses for sale as potential homes.

Good morning Nina.  Great infographic and also valuable information.  Can't take the emotion out of home buying, but it does need to be tempered with some logic.

Thank you for sharing the excellent graphic Nina Hollander . The one thing I would add to it is right after point one "What do I want" I'd add is what you want compatable with what your spouse (partner) wants?

Hi Nina: Where is the part where they get cold feet and wonder if they just made a huge mistake and call their agent at midnight sobbing and carrying on? Or is that behavior just in my market?

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents ~ I'm happy to report I've never had a midnight sobbing fest from a client! I think in some ways your market moves so quickly, people make decisions almost too quickly and then get buyer's remorse!

Nina Hollander - This is an outstanding post. Anyone can be emotional but some are more emotional than others. The infographic is excellent and your advice is powerful. Moving is a journey and each step of the way inches people up to different degrees of emotion.

You covered this topic very, very well!

Nina, I enjoy your infographics, and I am sure Buyers will like to have them during their buying process - it always feels better to know that you have guided other people through the emotions, too.
