Is This a Good Time For Home Buyers & Wannabees in London Ontario?

Since Adam & Eve went looking for a home, everyone has had an opinion on the proper steps & timing when buying a home, which is quite natural for us humans as we all have our inner fears, doubts, demons, bravado, ego & advice from well-meaning family members, so-called real estate gurus, 1000’s of books, articles, & Google searches, no wonder with the information overload we at times don’t act or think clearly!

I quote Morgan Housel in his excellent book “The Psychology of Money.”

” Every decision people make with money is justified by taking the information they have at the moment & plugging it into their unique mental model of how the world works. Those people can be misinformed, have incomplete information, be bad at math, be persuaded by marketing or misjudge the consequences of their actions.

Every financial decision a person makes; makes sense to them at that moment and checks the boxes that they need to check.”

Getting back to whether is this a good time to buy a home in London Ontario, as a Realtor, I have an opinion, if I can’t make ends meet, I have an opinion, if I’m a dreamer, I have an opinion, if a mortgage broker, I have an opinion, if a pessimist, optimist, fence-sitter, an opinion.

Facts Don’t Lie!

Omitting or hiding facts is the issue, and for most, how do you know the information you have at this moment is an opinion, a fact or a principle?

I may not have seen or heard it all, yet after working with thousands of home buyers & wannabes, there are a few practical steps to ensure the home buying process is less stressful and more satisfying.

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-tos, and what is for sale on MLS. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring, but we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty I am a Broker with Sutton Group Preferred Realty Inc., Brokerage and the team leader for The Envelope Real Estate Group, that's enough about me! You see, this is about you, you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
