Late at night, things happen to cause buyers and sellers of Maine real estate to wake up. Stay wide eyed.
To toss, turn and worry about the property purchase and sale process. How come?
Not an exercise they find themselves doing every day. It's one big chunk of money to fork over. Or saddle up to apply the lien with the notarized promissory noteis personal guaranteed to at the closing.
When a long mortgage payment is applied to their monthly budget.
When they already juggle lots of other financial obligations.
You want to keep it smooth sailing, easy does it.
Running out of money, what if I lose a job, the car acts up and needs an expensive repair at the world's worst time? Or how to pay for kid's braces, fund those college education accounts? How to make ends meet and can I really afford this buying, selling of a property? Is this the right time? So I can sleep nights inmy new Maine home.
How secure is my job and if there were employment layoffs, where would my neck be in the line up on the chopping block?
Takes time to weigh the options in anything involving real estate. The life largest purchase for most. Worry about the unknowns in life linger. Gives you a sinking feeling. Especially if tight resources make the money extra precious.
Squeasy, uneasy feelings enter the head and stomach of real estate buyers. With no nest egg squirrelled away especially. And even though a Maine bank is smiling, saying you are all approved. Can you pull really pull this purchase off successfully? You may not be so sure.
To buy a Maine home, or to rent an apartment is not a fun discussion to have without yourself either.
Because home ownership is the dream of all in the land right? To be connected. Part of a community as a tax payer who studies, serves on boards, votes on the issues facing the burg.
But shelter, I think we can all agree. It is one of the most basic needs. Up there with food, water, love. And lots of emotion is tied to the real estate property listing for the seller too.Because with homes, everything from bringing in the new born babies one by one, the Thanksgiving turkey, the Easter Ham and the Christmas tree, for all those holiday celebrations.
