Owning a home is part of the American dream however so many families do not enjoy home ownership. There is absolutely nothing wrong with living in an apartment or renting a home, if that is what you want to do. Granted, home ownership is NOT for everyone. However, I am directing this question to those who DO dream of home ownership but have NOT yet taken the first step towards making that dream come true. What is holding you back? What are you scared of?
The home buying process can be scary and a bit overwhelming for first time home buyers because it is all new. But keep in mind it was all new to everyone who owns a home. The process can be overwhelming which is why it is important to do your homework and hire a REALTOR® to ensure the process goes through seamlessly. Many people do not like to venture into unknown territory because it takes them out of their comfort zone and as we all know, stepping out of that comfort zone is very uncomfortable. I get it. Totally understandable however if we all stayed in our comfort zone, we would all still be crawling on the floor and pooping in a pamper. It is a scary feeling to be in unknown territory, believe me, I know. Nevertheless, it is a fear that we must be able to conquer.
The right REALTOR® can walk you through the process from beginning to end to help you get into the home of your dreams. REALTORS® are not magicians and cannot pull a rabbit out of a hat, so it will require work on your part. But it is okay, every home owner has gone through the same process. DO NOT let fear of the unknown prevent you from home ownership. Step outside of your comfort zone and join the many people who are living the American dream. It is up to you to take the first step.
