Why The Rush?
Why is it that so many people are rushing to move, or to jump on the real estate ladder. So the biggest worry that people are having, is that their home is losing value, or that the homes they’re trying to buy are growing in value. It’s so hard to figure out the market we’re working with at the minute, because every so often the values change, either for the better or for the worst. So half of the time, people are trying to figure out whether the move they’re about to make will be right financially, but if they miss it, whether they’ll struggle to find the right home for them in the future. There’s also a rush because of the pressure society is putting on people to move into their own home. This pressure often leads to people choosing to rent, rather than buy, which is a trap in itself!
How Hard It’s Becoming
It’s becoming ever so hard to jump on the real estate market, and then being able to afford everything that comes with it. First of all, you have that initial cost of affording the down payment. But then you have all of the troubles of the move, houses not being ready when you are, and items everywhere. So secure self storage are becoming more popular as well, because most of the time the delay is too large to put the items in someone else's house, such as family that are willing to help. It’s also becoming hard to find something that suits needs. You’ll often find that housing estates are now so boxed in on each other, making families in particular feel like they have no privacy!
The Problems People Are Facing
Aside from all of the problems that we’ve mentioned up until now, people are finding it hard to adjust to life in a new home, especially first time buyers. It sounds amazing, moving out, but when the reality of bills and having to maintain a home kicks in, it’s so hard to keep on top of things. So always reach out to family and friends for support, and make sure that you and your partnet are evenly sharing roles around the home!
