FEAR: A stumbling block for many home buyers

Fear of the unknown.Fear of buying the homebuying process

Fear of rejection.

Fear of commitment.

Fear of responsibility.

Fear of answering the unanswerable.

I have seen many would-be home buyers become paralyzed by the FEAR OF THE PROCESS.  Buying a home can and should be an exciting time but for many the process can seem overwhelming and mysterious.

One of the best ways to alleviate and overcome these inherent fears is to align yourself with experienced professionals that you can trust. 

The two professionals that you will have the most contact with during the process will be your real estate agent and your mortgage loan officer so it is important that you take your time during the selection process.  Make sure that you have a good rapport with them, make sure that you feel comfortable discussing private financial matters with them. 

Selecting Real Estate ProfessionalsOnce you have chosen the professionals, it is important to remember that THEY ARE THERE TO HELP YOU!  They are on your team.  They are your advocates, your cheerleaders and they have a vested interest in your success.

They should answer any and all questions that you have about the home buying process and never make you feel silly. 

There are NO DUMB QUESTIONS. (8 Simple Steps to Buying a New Home)

They should take the time that it takes to make sure that you are well informed and comfortable at each step along the way.  They should respond to your emails, texts, phone calls, etc. promptly.

You should understand that everyone who applies for a mortgage undergoes the same scrutiny, the same "invasion of privacy", the same feeling of uncertainty. 

It's normal. 

Don't take it personally. 

With the proper support and guidance from your real estate professional and your mortgage loan officer, you can complete the process and ENJOY LIVING IN YOUR NEW HOME.

Jenna,  Fear is a big stumbling block for many. TRUSTING the mortgage and real estate professional is a big piece of the equation in moving beyond fear.

Jenna Dixon - I always tell my buyers - the dumb question is the one you did not ask!

Guiding them through this complex process is what I like - and they do appreciate it, too.

Congratulations on the feature. The process of getting a mortgage and buying a home can be intimidating and scary for many buyers, but the key to avoiding that is education and guidance from those who know the process well and can help throughout the process.
