RESERVED A PROPERTY TO BUY & NOW YOU’VE GOT COLD FEET?
Buying your dream home in Spain is an exciting time. It not only gives you so much to look forward to after being in limbo for such a long time, but is also a great investment for your financial future.
If you’re one of the many people that have reserved a property to buy, without seeing it in person, you may be questioning your own judgement by way of asking yourself “what have I done?”. This feeling you maybe experiencing doesn’t actually mean there’s something wrong with your purchase, or that you shouldn’t continue.
It’s just your mind playing Devil’s advocate, making you question your own judgement. Meaning you’re just getting cold feet!
Here’s 3 points on how to make sure your fears are put to rest, so you can make this journey an exciting one, and not one to be afraid of.
1. If you’re unsure how much your legal costs will be, make sure those questions have already been answered, long before you’ve even put your offer forward. No-one wants to receive a hefty bill after they’ve completed, so get that “piece of mind” information, from the start.
2. If you’re nervous you could be paying too much, think about other homes you’ve already seen in your price range. Ask your Real Estate Agent to show you comparable home prices if necessary. This will reinforce your decision and prove that you’ve agreed on a great price. Let those nervous butterflies you’ve had, change to excitement and allow them to carry you through your purchase!
3. If you’re in the mindset of “maybe a better house will come on the market,” you need to stop second-guessing yourself. Don’t you remember how many homes you’ve looked at online, before you fell in love with the one you’ve chosen? You need to give yourself a pat on the back, and remind yourself of all the online research you did upfront. And, if you’re still afraid you’re going to miss out on an even better home, ask yourself how happy you are with the property you are buying, on a scale of 1 to 10. An 8 or higher, you’re making a great purchase. Think about this.... You could be looking for a year or two and never find a perfect 10.
So stop doubting your decision, look to the future with your head held high, and make your purchase a happy adventure. I’m sure you’re choice will be perfect!
