The Buying Series Part 6 – Get advice from family and friends… but not too much

Are you on the lookout for your dream home but struggling with too many cooks in the kitchen? Well, fear not! We’ve all been there.

Parents, adult children, respected family members, and even friends can have a significant influence on our buying decisions. Maybe they have a financial stake in it or are just being protective and parental. And let’s face it, they don’t want you to move away from them and miss out on all those delicious home-cooked meals.

While it’s great to have their support, it’s essential to remember that their taste and lifestyle preferences might be different from yours. But, don’t worry! This is where you come in, and your opinion is the most critical. You’re the one who knows what you’re looking for, and what will make you truly happy.

If you’re in a situation where a family member or friend is offering advice after you’ve already looked at dozens of properties, take it with a pinch of salt. Sure, they might have more experience and insights, but don’t let them overshadow your own reality.

So, the next time someone tries to steer you in a different direction, take their input, weigh it against your own vision, and stay optimistic. After all, your dream home is out there waiting for you, and you’ll find it!
