In a nutshell, buying property requires an open and positive mindset.
Anything and everything will happen throughout this process and no two buying experiences are ever the same.
You need to be prepared for what will be thrown at you, sometimes last minute, and usually from out of left field.
Having an open mind, a just-go-with-it attitude, and a glass half full positive mentality will be your strongest allies.
As hard as it can be, remaining unattached to the outcome until the property has officially settled and you have those hot little keys in your hands is also something to be mindful of. Things can and do change quickly in the real estate game and I’ve seen buyers who get their hopes up too soon be emotionally crushed to smithereens when something doesn’t go as they’d planned or expected.
