I met a young man that had to sell his house. He told me he started his search for a bigger property when prices were at their highest. Then the prices started to decline but he bought what he wanted anyways and was left to sell in a declining market.
His answer to me was, "I have already made money since I purchased my first home and there's no need to be greedy. Maybe I didn't make as much as I would have liked to but life goes on. After all, this is my home, not a rental investment." There is something to be said for that!
Some sellers forget the price they paid for their home 5,10 or 20 years ago. Now they are downsizing and want to cash in. Remember all the good times and security your home has given you.
Real estate is still the best investment, no matter what the price. Home is where the heart is.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! May your 2018 be filled with joy, prosperity, peace and good health.
