Are You an Unhappy Buyer?
REALTORS know, some buyers may never be happy with their options. In a sellers’ market, being a perpetually unhappy buyer could mean you might not find exactly what you are looking for. While you want to make smart choices, and not “settle” for just any house, you also don’t want to be uncompromising in your search.
A good example is you view a home and it’s the right price, in the right neighborhood, with the right amount of land, and has the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you need. The house has been beautifully updated too, but you don’t like the crown molding in the dining room and it doesn’t have the stainless steel appliances you want. You are unhappy with it so you end up crossing it off the list instantly (insert your REALTOR’s sigh here).
A balance must be found sometimes for those potential buyers who are never quite satisfied with the homes they view – a balance in which they make a few small concessions in order to obtain the big, most important features.

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will make. It’s natural to want everything to be “perfect” before you buy; but if you find you are unhappy and walk away from potentially great homes because of minor details, it may be time to look at ways you can compromise. Making a few shifts in your search criteria, being a bit less rigid, can turn you into a happy buyer – and a homeowner.
