5. After you write the final check for closing day – Your closing day is when you will make the full commitment into homeownership.  Just as many engaged couples on their wedding day do, scan through all the reasons why they want to say “I do”. You are normal if you are asking yourself “am I doing the right thing”?  What if, what if, what if?  Remember real estate is not “until death do you part”.  Most home buyers become home sellers every 3 to 5 years.  Your housing needs will change along with your life.  Buying this home is not a lifetime commitment it is a stepping stone to building wealth why keeping a comfortable roof over your head.

TIP:  As you write a purchase check it’s normal for thoughts such as: “what if something happens to my finances” to creep in.  Remember, nothing in life is for certain.  Dwell on the positives of ownership, tax write off, investment growth and sleep better.  Homeownership offers you the ability to sell your asset and cash out in the future if you need to.  Renting is a problem if something happens to your finances too.  If you can’t pay you can’t stay and because you do not own anything, you have nothing to sell.
