Or that foreclosure, unless it's absolutely perfect!
When will I learn? Thinking I would score BIG this year, I hit some after-Christmas Sales. It didn't happen.
OH.... I bought some stuff.... the usual..... 70% off hot pink sweater, about which, once I got it home, I remembered how ridiculous boat necks look on me.
OH... and the black plaid jacket that was going to look great with the pink sweater, even though it was too short to cover up the rather chubbier than normal mid-section I got for Christmas, BUT would be great once I lost 10 pounds, (that's probably not gonna happen either.)
"What does all this shopping talk have to do with real estate???" you might ask.
Well, let me tell you, I will never wear that pink sweater, with or without that plaid jacket. I would have been much better off waiting until the new spring lines come out and paying full price for an outfit I will actually wear, and therefore, recognize the value.
Similarly, should the real estate buyer who is in the market for a home, buy something that almost works for his family, simply because it’s a great deal? Or should he stay the course, and after negotiating the best price (which he can do because it is still a spectacular buyer’s market), purchase the home of his dreams that works perfectly for his family.
Bottom line…..Mr. and Mrs. Buyer, don’t just look for foreclosures and distressed properties. Don't buy that hot pink boat neck sweater because it almost works, or that ugly foreclosure. Look for a great value that gives you exactly what you want and negotiate the best possible price.
For example, the real estate featured on this page is representative of homes currently on the DeBordieu market at great prices, but you will not find them on a foreclosure list. They are simply great values.
