What to do in case you are feeling buyer’s remorse and uncertainty after purchasing in a seller’s market

In recent months, B.C.’s real estate market has heavily favoured those who are selling properties. As a result, many prospective homebuyers were forced to make snap decisions when purchasing a home, rather than doing their due diligence when it comes to condition checks and quality assurance (ie. removing subject clauses).

Buying a home in a seller’s market can be far more stressful than usual, however we have assisted many such buyers after the fact, providing them with assurance and peace of mind, even if the process had left them in a daze.

Some common questions and concerns that buyers have in this type of situations are:

  • Have I just purchased a money pit?
  • Are there safety issues that need to be corrected?
  • What should my priorities be?
  • Is it too late to address some of these issues?
  • Is my family at risk?
  • Is there someone I can turn to, to offer some assurance and guidance?

Have no fear! It isn’t too late.

Duxbury & Associates can help identify any issues that need to be addressed. Glenn Duxbury can also author a detailed report that will confirm and/or dispel the worries you may have with your home and aide you in creating a plan to bring in professionals who can fix the situation, if needed.

As the saying goes, knowledge is power.  This can replace and erase stress, anxiety and the worries of the unknown.
