So Pull the Trigger!

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

If you were a gun fighter in the Wild West and hesitated to pull the trigger, you might not get another chance. Failing to pull the trigger nowadays in real estate can end your chances to fight for a home as well. Let me explain...

I have clients at the moment that have been looking for a home for multiple months and have lost out on several offer attempts. We saw a home over the weekend that the couple liked and for the past 24 hours they have been more concerned about offer strategies than actually putting in an offer.

It's OK to discuss strategies with your real estate professional, but at some point you have to stop discussing and pull the trigger.

If you have to sleep on it, you may never get to sleep in it.

Oh my, indecision will not win the race.  Pull the darn trigger and see it your aim was on target!

That saying proves to be true for a lot of things we face in the world, if we fail to act quick enough, we often lose out.

People that want to discuss strategies are still looking to get a deal and not really looking to get a house.

Peter, by waiting just a month or two, they now can enjoy a higher interest rate too!
