We've been working diligently with some very nice clients to find them a home in Ozark, Nixa, or Springfield MO that meets their needs and budget. It seems like every time we find the right house, something unexpected happens that knocks it out of the running. Last week we came close again and another issue surfaced. I was asking a bunch of questions and trying to figure out what to do next and all of a sudden she burst into tears. What I didn't realize was she was heartbroken over the stress and emotions of not finding the right home yet. I felt SO bad and gave her a big hug. Thank goodness everything is okay now and the search continues.
As REALTORS® sometimes we get caught up in the facts, just the facts, and forget that buying a home is a very personal and emotional experience for buyers and sellers. Its not just a house, its a home. Its easy to get caught up in current interest rates, new listings, marketing homes, showing homes, scheduling inspections, meetings, negotiating contracts, and so on and forget about the human aspect of selling homes. We surely learned our lesson!
