There are seasons in life when home buying isn’t fun. Maybe your expectations and your budget don’t line up. Perhaps there has been a job change or a divorce, or maybe you are relocating to a more expensive area to experience an urban lifestyle or enroll your children in different schools.
If you find yourself in this situation, I urge you to try your best to detach yourself emotionally from the decision and approach it as a businessperson. Shift your search to find a property that has good potential for equity growth, and let a good Realtor be your guide. You may not be in love with it, but it very well might be the boost you need to get into that dream home.
After all, real estate is the only tax-free investment opportunity out there.
