Avoid buyers remorse

Managing Real Estate Broker with John L Scott #86099

Things as you go thru buying process to ask yourself-

  1. Does the home include the most important things on the list?
  2. What qualities made the house you chose stand out from the others you looked at?
  3. Did you find many houses that met your needs or was this one a rarity?
  4. If you can back out of the contract, is it realistic to think you will find a house that's "better?"
  5. What was special about the house just a few days ago and how has it changed--really changed?

Analyzing the facts that lead you to the home will help you sort out your feelings about the contract. Was it truly a poor choice or would you be nervous moving forward on any house?


Happy shoping!!!!!!!!

Hi Daryl,

When I have a buyer getting nervous I calmly tell them that its a good sign.  Anyone making a 30 year commitment worth hundreds of thousands of dollars should be nervous.  It's a big commitment and we go through a series of questions similar to yours.  It's when a client isn't nervous I start to worry.

Commitment phobia.  Some people just have it whether it is a relationship or a major purchase.  I think your bullet points are a good way to help them thing through the process from a logical point of view.

Logic and commitment don't always go hand in hand. Like Dan said, I would be more concerned if my client wasn't a little nervous signing a 30 year commitment.
