'Vision of Home': Don't buy without it

REThink Real Estate

Q:I think I might be too picky!I have just started house hunting for my first home. I know people who bought the fourth or fifth home that they saw, but my Realtor has shown me more than 30 homes and I still havent seen "the one" yet. Am I being unreasonable?

A: The real question as I see it is whether it is possible to be too picky when you are buying a home. My answer? It is, but it’s pretty tough, and I don’t think you are there yet. It sounds like you are experiencing some anxiety and uncertainty about the process of selecting your home. There are some perspectives and tools I’d like to share with you to transform your experience of the process.
