The real estate market can be terrifying, which is part of the reason I love it so much. But it can be downright petrifying when it involves what may be your most valuable possession: your home. The market changes every day, sometimes every minute. For home buyers, some of whom will buy one house in a lifetime, trying to time the market perfectly can be a ridiculous waste of time. In ten, twenty, or forty years, any small variations in the price of your house will have amortized into a blip on your financial radar screen.
You have to go with your gut, and if you love a house and you can afford it and your broker assures you that you are paying a fair market price, you’re paying the best price. It’s as simple as that. When it comes to your home, don’t be concerned about spending more than it’s worth if you know that you will be there forever and you’ll be happy there. Sometimes the emotional price you put on a house may exceed the market price. Buying a home is different from the pure economics of investing in real estate. If you simply cannot afford a house that you love, don’t be shy about underbidding; sometimes the seller will surprise you.
