Are You Looking for the Perfect House?

Okay buyers, I know it’s like being a kid in the candy store when you are out looking in today’s market.  There are plenty of choices.  However, there is no reason to look at every home for sale in your price range.   You are NOT going to find the perfect one – every house has trade-offs and it’s a matter of weighing the features important to you.   Psychologists and economists have studied the issue of too many choices and have concluded that an overload of options may actually paralyze people.  Buyers fear that whatever they select, the other option would have been better.  Research shows that an excess of choices leads us to be less, not more, satisfied once we actually decide.  According to the 2013 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Buyers & Sellers, the typical buyer viewed 10 homes during their home search process.  If you are spending hours researching and have looked at way more than 10 houses, it’s time to stop and focus.  And be happy with what you decide!  If you need help in focusing, then give me a call.  As an Accredited Buyers’ Representative, I will put my years of experience to work for you.  donna@donnaforest.com, www.donnaforest.com, 603-526-4116.

Know How to Build Your Wealth?

With home ownership! Gallup recently released results from their April Economy and Personal Finances poll that asked Americans to choose the best option for long-term investments. Given the choices of real estate, stocks & mutual funds, gold, savings accounts & CDs, or bonds, Americans today think real estate is the best option for long-term investments, ranking it ahead of gold and stocks. As housing prices continue to improve, I believe more and more Americans will consider real estate to be their best course of action for long-term investment.

This belief that home ownership builds wealth is also backed by a study published in 2012 by the Federal Reserve (Federal Reserve Bulletin June 2012 Vol. 98 No. 2) that revealed a homeowner’s net worth is 30 times greater than that of a renter. The average homeowner had a net worth of $174,500 while the average net worth of a renter was $5100. It is a great time to be building wealth by buying a home now so you can take advantage of the low interest rates and spring inventory. Give me a call and put my 20 years of real estate experience to work for you! 603-526-4116; www.donnaforest.com; donna@donnaforest.com.
