Finding the ideal home is a lot like finding the ideal partner. Home buying can be stressful and anyone who’s been single recently can confirm that dating can sometimes be a living nightmare. But when you find The One, it’s all worth it in both cases. This is why some experts suggest using the dating approach when house-hunting could make the whole experience better.
You’re thrilled when someone pairs you with a good match – Sometimes getting help from an expert is just what you need.
You know what you want, but realize you can’t be too picky – No partner is perfect and no house is either, so sometimes you have to take a chance on the option that gives you most of what’s on your checklist. And you never know when sparks are going to fly in person, with a date or a house.
You know it’s important to take it slow – You shouldn’t rush big decisions, with partners or houses. Think of open houses like casual coffee dates, there’s no pressure, you’re just checking things out. And when you feel frustrated by the house-hunting process, remember there are plenty of bungalows in the cul-de-sac, just like there are plenty of fish in the sea. Find the right one and you’ll live happily ever after.
