EACH LIFE IS MADE UP OF MISTAKES & LEARNING,
WAITING & GROWING, PRACTICING PATIENCE
AND BEING PERSISTENT

Think About What Patience Can Do For You Or Against You
If you want my two cents about what I think about patience when it comes to Real Estate during a Seller's Market when inventory is low, here are my personal opinions:
Waiting for new Active Listings when inventory is low may require patience but waiting because you want to sleep on it before making a decision to make an offer may be too late.
The problem with taking too long to think about whether you want to make an offer on a house may be prudent but when multiple buyers are all looking for a home in the same price range, same school district, same zip code, or city by the time you decide it may be too late.
If you think Investors aren't thirsty and hungry for a deal, think again, they probably have more money and can pay more too without being picky.
Consulting with FaceBook friends or texting others to talk about what you should do may be helpful but just like too many cooks in a kitchen can spoil the dinner, so can too many heads who are not in the business of selling real estate cause doubt or influence you to make the wrong decision.
If you think it wasn't meant to be, whose fault can it be?
Driving too hard a bargain when interest rates are this low may come back to haunt you if it doesn't work out.
Patience may be a good thing but even patience has its limits.
Never assume interest rates will get any lower or a better house will come along or assume that it wasn't meant to be if you resist and don't try.
