House Hunting Doesn’t Have to Be Stressful
“House hunting is stressful…” @mollykerrigan
“Find house hunting so stressful hate being decisive !!” @bethyybowers
“I never knew house hunting could be so taxing, with so many options not sure which one to choose” @Ms_Masingi
According to popular opinion on Twitter, lots of people stress out when they jump on the house-hunting train. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Owning a home should be a relatively long term decision depending upon your future plans, but it doesn’t have to be for life. In fact, if you’re young, and you have dreams of owning a dream home some day, I would urge you to shift focus while you search for what is inevitably going to be an intermediate home on the way to your dream home. Shift that focus from owning the perfect house, to making the right financial decisions as you move from house to house over the years.
Owning that perfect home now is often what gets people all worked up and stressed out. Relax and remember that this is not the end of the line for your home ownership experience. It’s just the beginning, and in a few years, you can move from where you are now, to something closer to “perfect.” Who knows, by then it’s possible that you will have earned enough equity and saved enough money to build your own custom home, just the way you want it.
