Buyers need to stay positive in this market.
I don’t normally reach out to buyers, but today I wanted to because I think in today’s market, the power of positivity cannot be overstated. I’ve run my life on being positive, using my faith, being careful of what comes out of my mouth, and seeing my goals manifest.
Frankly, this market can be stressful and depressing for buyers. Most homes have multiple offers on them, and that kind of competition can be intimidating, especially if you’re a buyer who is doing a 3%-down offer. You might feel like you’re behind the eight ball, but today I wanted to let you know that you aren’t.
"I truly believe that you have to act as though your goals will come to fruition if you want them to."
Recently, I had a buyer with a 3%-down offer; we were competing for two properties and going up against cash offers. He was starting to feel depressed, but after some encouragement, he went to look at a popular condo. The stars aligned, and he ended up getting the condo at the price he offered.
The bottom line: Don’t give up, and focus on staying positive. If you’re a person of faith like I am, I encourage you to focus on prayer. I’ve witnessed hundreds of examples of this working in my own life; I truly believe that you have to act as though your goals will come to fruition if you want them to. Also, be specific about your goals. Write down the kind of house and all the things you want for it so that whenever it comes along, you’ll recognize it instantly.
If you have any questions about buying a home in today’s market, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to help you build confidence and enthusiasm in your ability to find the home of your dreams.
