How to Avoid Buyer's Remorse

1/27/2015

You loved the home when you signed the closing contract, but suddenly you’re not sure you made the right choice. Is there a better house out there? Did you pay too much? What if the value goes down?

Questions will race through your head long after the home becomes yours. Doubts are a normal part of the process. After all, a home is probably the most expensive thing you’ll ever purchase – but it will also be one of the proudest moments of your life. If you do experience buyer’s remorse, there are a few things you can do to put your mind at ease:

  • Remember your must-haves. If you’re regretting your purchase, go back through your list to remind yourself of all the features that made you want the house to begin with.

  • Don’t look at other houses. Stop browsing the listings and going to open houses. It’s tempting, but now is time to focus on your new home.
  • Start decorating. This is the fun part! Make your home your own. Now is the time to put the decorating ideas you had before purchasing the house to work.
  • Don’t dwell. Stop thinking about the negative aspects of the house or the compromises you had to make. Focus on the good.
