Research has shown that buying or selling a home can be an extremely stressful event. In any situation, preparation is key to reducing anxiety. Michele Harmon Team has a few tips that will help you achieve a stress free Real Estate experience.

2. Create a List
Before you begin touring properties, create a list that prioritizes your home feature “wants” and “needs”. Not thinking about what you are truly looking for in a home prior to touring properties will put you on the spot and can potentially create anxiety.
3. Get Mortgage Pre-Approval
Having your finances ready eliminates unpleasant surprises from lenders after you have found your dream home. It is important to speak with a lender and get pre-approved before you start house hunting. This will tell you how much home you can afford, your interest rate, or if you need to take action on an item in order to get pre-approved. Most importantly, your pre-approval letter lets sellers know that you mean business. Michele Harmon Team has developed relationships with some of the best lenders in Texas who can help you find the best loan program for you.

4. Don’t Take Things Personally
It’s not you, it’s them! Or the market. Or the lender. Try not to take it personally if a buyer values your home for less than what you are asking, or if a seller rejects what you believe is a perfectly reasonable offer.
5. Talk Things Through with Your Trusted Real Estate Agent
One of the best ways to de-stress is to talk things through with your trusted Real Estate Agent. If you ever need to talk, do not hesitate to contact Michele Harmon Team. We will always guide you through the process and make it as stress free on you as possible.
