Tips for purchasing a home

Buying a home is an exciting and complex adventure. It can also be a very time-consuming and costly one if you’re not familiar with all aspects of the process, and don’t have all the best information and resources at hand.

If you’re like most people, buying a home is the biggest investment you will ever make. So whether you’re buying a starter home, your dream home or an investment property, why not take advantage of my experience in the local market of Maple Ridge to make the most informed decisions you can, every step of the way?

Buying a home is a truly emotional experience. There are tremendous feelings that seem to be overflowing at any given moment. With some good emotions and some bad emotions, how can they be kept separate?

Before your first foot enters a home, the simple thought of buying a new home can trigger feelings of excitement and anxiety; feelings of wonder for what will come down the path of buying a home. This is only the beginning of the emotional train you can experience.

Entering what turns out to be the right home, you may feel overwhelmed with a feeling of joyous relief, comfort and peace in finding the perfect home. Once the contract is in and accepted, the rollercoaster may ensue. There are several steps to buying a home, leaving plenty of time for anything to happen.

After your mind and your heart are set on a particular home, any small wrinkle in the flow can cause tremendous stress and upset. The feeling of pending loss may arise and bring about fear. When these issues are resolved, feelings of bliss and liberation can take over and put you back in a "happy place" to move forward.

Approaching the grand finale, homebuyers may feel inundated with things to do in preparation of moving or feel excitement to complete the process of buying a home to call their own.

Everyone has different emotions and triggers. It is rare that any two people share the same feelings when buying a home. The process can lead to a full spectrum of emotion – from excitement to fear, from happiness to sorrow. This should not be a pitfall, but rather a word of advice to keep your mind open to the possibilities. Often times emotion can lead to making a decision before thoroughly considering what you have in front of you. It is very wise for your future to be alert to your feelings and enjoy the excitement of buying a home.
