Are You Ready To Be A Home Owner? Really Ready?

Industry Observer



Since my business is helping people buy and sell homes, you might think that I believe EVERYONE should buy a house. I make money if I sell houses after all. But.....sometimes people should NOT buy a house - not right now.

If you are a buyer who is considering quitting your job to go back to school - it may not be the right time to buy a house.

If you are a buyer who is pretty sure you'll be relocating across the country next year - it may not be the right time to buy a house (unless your plan is to turn the house into a rental & you know how that will work both financially & for managing it long distance).

If you are a buyer who will be pretty much depleting your savings account to scrape up the funds needed to close on a house - it may not be the right time to buy a house. The nature of home ownership is that there is ongoing maintenance to do as well as budgeting for the longer term or emergency things like a new roof or hot water heater.

I do LOVE selling homes to buyers & being able to share their joy & pride in becoming a home owner. But....if the time to buy is really next year....or in 5 years....then that's OK. When the time is truly right for you to be a home owner, then I'd be delighted to help you make that happen!

Nancy:  Like me, YOU are in business for the long haul.  You're exactly right when you say that whether it's now or down the road ... we will be here to assist Buyers.  It's best they make sure the timing is right for themselves ...

Thanks Gene!  Yep, I will be delighted to help buyers buy when the timing is right for THEM, whether soon or in the future.  And I know you feel the very same about being there for them to assist with a mortgage loan - when they are ready.
