Thinking About Buying A Home? Avoid These Common Regrets

You have to make a lot of decisions during the process of buying a house. But if you don’t make the right decisions, that process can lead to serious homebuyer regret.

So what, exactly, are some decisions you’ll want to avoid during the homebuying process?

recent article from outlined some of the most common regrets that end up haunting homeowners long after move-in day, including:

  • Waiting until the last minute to start looking for a home. Waiting until the very last minute to start your home search is a big mistake. When you’re tight on time and need to find a home ASAP, you’re forced to buy the best of what’s available, instead of the best home for you. Instead, give yourself plenty of time for your home search.
  • Overlooking schools — even if you’re a child-free home. Buying a home in a good school district is a “must have” on many parents’ lists. But even if you don’t have children, or ever plan on having any, you should still consider the school district before buying a home, as it can play a major role in the property’s resale value.
  • Underestimating the number of bedrooms you actually need. When you buy a home, chances are, you’re going to have to make compromises. But compromising on the number of bedrooms is a choice many homeowners come to regret. Before you start looking for a home, get clear on how many bedrooms you need, and then tailor your search accordingly.
