The Home Buying Decision

How do people choose careers, colleges, spouses and towns. Of those decisions, buying a home ranks with the most difficult.

It is difficult emotionally. Like a lot of the biggest decisions, it is more emotional than coldly rational. People generally don’t select a house; they fall in love with it.

Part of that falling-in-love process is aesthetic: the sense you get within 10 seconds of walking into a place that it just feels happy and right. Part is aspirational: When people fall in love with a house, they aren’t really falling in love with the walls and the roof; they are falling in love with a beautiful vision of their future lives.

That process of falling in love is confusing and mysterious. When you’re buying a house, you’re making a stressful major financial decision based on a set of emotions you can’t control, don’t fully understand and can’t pin down in any concrete way.

Cupid’s housing arrow has a tendency to strike you unawares. You walk into a place and just start behaving differently. You find yourself talking about where you’re going to put your furniture; you feel defensive when the Realtor mentions some of the place’s flaws; you feel the urge to brag about the house to your friends; you feel comfortable walking into the bedrooms and bathrooms, even on the first tour; you feel bereft at the thought of not having it. You’re just buying an object, but your heart is suddenly on the line.

Choosing a house is also difficult psychologically. The whole process forces you to separate what you think you want from what you really want. Realtors have a phrase, “Buyers lie,” because at the start of the process so many people don’t know what they desire.

You may have dreams of being the sort of person who has a fantastically eclectic house, filled with beautiful and exotic objects and where you can host squads of people for big dinners and parties; and that you can have a house that is a crossroads for diverse populations.

But when you actually survey the homes you are drawn to, you realize that you in fact love your privacy; that you don’t care enough about interior design to spend years searching for the fascinating objets; that in real life the thought of neighbors constantly coming over fills you with exhaustion; that a sense of quiet, tranquillity and privacy is more important to you than the frenetic chaos that comes with running Grand Central Station.

House hunting is cognitively challenging. At some point the inspections, the appraisal and the price negotiation impose cold rigor on this hot process. You don’t know what the seller (that jerk!) is thinking, or how exactly you are getting shafted in the process (though you are!). At some point the head has to check and set boundaries on the heart, employing certain mental tricks to self-distance. For example:

How do you make the major decisions about offers and conditions? Pretend you are advising a friend, not yourself.

How do you know you’ve fairly sampled the market and haven’t missed a better house somewhere out there? At the start, tell yourself you’re going to see 50 homes total. Visit 18 without making an offer on any of them. Then make an offer on the next house that’s better than the first 18.

How do you force yourself to remember in the middle of a negotiation that you’ve got to be willing to walk away? Remind yourself that this is not a narrow-framed binary buy-or-not-buy choice. There are many other housing options out there on the market.

Finally, house hunting is morally difficult. This is where Donald Trump comes in. We’ve become a ferociously fragmented country. People move close to people just like themselves. Every town becomes a cultural ghetto while Americans become strangers to one another and the civic fabric lies in ruins. People feel more comfortable in their insular neighborhoods, but self-segregation is damaging to one’s own open-mindedness and to the country at large. In 2017 it’s probably necessary to put a moral onus on realty decisions, to be seriously bothered by the temptation to talk about diversity but move to homogeneity.

The process of house hunting focuses your attention on the wrong things. It focuses your mind on the features of the house rather than on the features of your life. Think of all the people who fall for some expansive far-off home, without counting the cost of a long commute. They’ve got a happy home but a miserable existence.

It focuses on the features of the house, not on the social relationships that will happen in them, which is all you’ll remember decades hence. Choosing this or that house has only a moderate effect on joyfulness. The neighborhood you choose, and the social fabric you enter, is more important than the structure you adore.

How Can You Trust a San Diego Realtor?

Homes for sale in San Diego

Buying a home in San Diego can be interesting. Such a beautiful town with a tremendous amount of opportunities, both in investment and living the kind of life you and your family deserve. Buying a house can be stressful, but making a decision about where to live and how to live in a city with so many great aspects can be daunting.

Some families get so excited about the prospect of buying, and of a new place, that they get caught up in that feeling rather than properly vetting an agent. Fortunately, there are ways home buying prospects can be reassured that a realtor is taking them down the right path. Here are some to consider:

  1. Are calls returned promptly? The right realtor cares about his or her clients, and making sure that communication and common ground are at the forefront of the business relationship saves future cycles.
  2. Does your realtor care about what you’re looking for, or rather does he or she seem to push their agenda on you?
  3. Do you feel pushed out of your price range, or pushed toward a purchase that you don’t feel financially secure with?
  4. Does your real estate agent in San Diego come with personal recommendations, good reviews and does he or she seem to work to get the relationship built with trust out of the gate?

These are all things to consider when it comes to buying the right house in San Diego.

Stay tuned and keep an eye on this blog for more tips, tricks and news!

Buying a new home

Tips for buying a new home

When you’re looking to find a new home online, you’re confronted with dozens (if not more!) opportunities to find the home of your dreams. You could be looking anywhere, from the top-rated websites to newtools just hitting the market. Many real estate buyers tend to find the home of their dreams from local realtors, word of mouth or simply driving around and looking at signs.

If you’re in the market for a new home, there are a variety of things to consider in order to make sure you get the best option. Here are some simple tricks to ensure buying a new home in your city and state will yield the best possible results for you.

  1. Work with a realtor. Find someone you trust and have a good rapport with. In order to do this, it’s possible you’ll need to vet a few realtors and see where the best relationship develops. The realtor that promises to give you a life-changing deal when you buy a new home might be the one that ends up costing you more money and time in the long run. Trust and accountability are 100% necessary when you get into a relationship with a realtor.
  2. Ask questions. Ask a ton – whether you’re interested in learning more about the history of a structure or home or you’re looking to find out why a home is priced the way it is, you must remember that no question is too offbeat. It makes sense to get all the information when buying a home in your area so you can make the best decisions.
  3. Think about the future. Many people looking for a new home might even consider taking the first offer. For every house you love, there might be a dozen more on the market you haven’t seen yet. If you can’t make finding the perfect home work with your budget, then the house you’ve been considering might not be the perfect one.

The reality is that much can go into buying real estate, so developing the right relationship of trust with a realtor who really cares about you is critical to finding the right property for you and your family. Asking questions, building relationships and taking the time to make sure you’re getting involved in the right situation are all integral to the best possible experience.

We’d love for you to use ZiptoHome to find the home of your dreams and connect with a realtor that you can build trust and a future with!
