As Windsor real estate agents, we cannot deny that buying a home is stressful. In fact, it’s one of the most stressful things a person can go through. It plays on your emotions, your finances and can often be physically draining, as the whole process can be overwhelming.
What many say is the most stressful time, is waiting to see if the sellers have accepted your offer. Chances are, you have already imagined where you are going to put the furniture in your new home and you can hardly wait to meet the new neighbors. But of course, none of this can happen until your offer is agreed upon. So you are crossing all your fingers and trying hard not to stare at the phone while waiting for your agent to call with the hopeful news.
So how can you avoid the stress of buying a home? Many Windsor real estate agents have made thoughtful suggestions to their clients to try and avoid worrying for the couple of days it usually takes before an answer arrives. Here are some of their ideas:
1. Get physical. Make it a point to stay busy by engaging in exercise, family bike rides or sporting activities.
2. Go Away: Take a few days off if possible and head to a location that will distract you. If you have spent a long period of time looking for a home, chances are, you are due for a little break. If you can’t take a few days off, consider going away for a day to an amusement park, play or a double feature. Remember, you are only a phone call away. We know how to find you.
3. Call Your Agent: If you have any lingering doubts or questions, follow up with your Windsor real estate agents. They can help alleviate your fears and tell you that what you are feeling is normal and par for the course.
4. You Can’t Control The Outcome: Remember, you have done everything you can, the rest is up to the seller. Chances are they want to sell their home as badly as you want to buy it, maybe even more. So rest as comfortably as possible and know that if you made a fair offer that is all you can do.
