When Not Buying = Buyer's Remorse

By
Real Estate Agent with The Realty Group, LLC

At Lowe's, they had fence panels for sale at 50% off.

I need to build a fence.

I really, really thought about those fence panels - a lot.

I thought I'd just wait a little longer though, maybe when the weather got just a little bit warmer.

So, it's turned warmer. 

Yesterday, I went to Lowe's to finally buy the fence panels that I wanted.

They were gone.

They were such a bargin, the Lowe's guy told me, people just snapped them up.

Now I'm kicking myself.  Hard and frequently.

Will today's home buyers who are sitting on the fence kick themselves later?

I wonder.

Hello Kimo - During these confusing times, I find myself editing rooms more than adding to them - I need the clarity that only a blank wall can provide.  Thank you for your comment.  It's good to hear from you.

Very funny story!  I have a friend who was waiting to buy a home, but he kept saying he wanted to see what happened with interest rates.  When the rates went down he said he was waiting to find that right house.  He found the right house, but he did not want to write an offer because he was convinced the rates were going to get lower.  While he was waiting the house he really wanted got sold.  He is still waiting, but every time I see him he tells me how much he regrets not writing on offer on his dream home.  Buyer's remorse for not buying!

Hi Christopher - and then they start comparing everything they see to the one "that got away." People are kinda funny, huh?  Nice to hear from someone from the'hood.

Dear Alyce,

Very nice post and good analogy.

Some people have to lose several "deals", before they can recognize an opportunity!

Hello Barbara - Very kind of you to comment.  Thank you for stopping by!  I have clients who still drive by a house they should have bought.  They say it's "their house" (dot, dot, dot...)  Kinda sad really.
