4. The final walk through – you start to fear it’s a bad house that will cost you a lot to maintain.
TIP: One reason feelings turn negative on a walk through is you have had a lot to do in a short period of time and there has been a lot of uncertainty such as waiting for loan approval, packing and organizing a move, working through inspection items. It is all overwhelming and the house you just walked through is vacant and lifeless sort of like your energy level right now. Let’s face it, you’re tired. Don’t expect the excitement about your new home to be as intense as it was in the beginning. You are about to make a final commitment and your feelings are normal. Stay calm and carry on or as many Realtors say; “take two M&M’s and call me in the morning”. After a good night’s rest you will feel better. Now focus on all the fun times you are going to have in your new home and watch your excitement return again.
