The cure for homebuying anxiety you should know about

Anyone who’s ever bought a home knows that the process can be stressful. In fact, nearly half of American homeowners said buying their first home was the most stressful event in their lives! Luckily, you don’t have to suffer through homebuying anxiety. Here’s a solution that every homebuyer can benefit from.

One thing I’ve learned over years of helping people to become homeowners is that homebuying anxiety is real.  In fact, a recent study found that nearly half of American homeowners said buying their first home was the most stressful event of their lives, and one in three said the process had brought them to tears. 


The good news is nobody has to be overwhelmed by the homebuying process. By taking advantage of a valuable resource that many people overlook, you can come to the table more prepared and enjoy a much smoother process. Homeownership advisors stand ready to walk you through the homebuying process. Here’s how they can contribute to your success.


Homeownership advisors will educate you. The homebuying process can be a long and complicated process. If you’ve never purchased a home, how can you expect to know the ins and outs? You don’t have to if you have a homeownership advisor. He or she will walk you through the process from beginning to end.



Homeownership advisors will prepare you. When you’re planning to buy a home, you want to put yourself in the best possible position financially. Doing so can make the process easier and save you money. For example, the better your credit, the more likely you’ll qualify for a lower-interest rate, which can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. Homeownership advisors know what lenders are looking for, and they can work with you before you’re actually ready to buy a house to make sure your finances are in tip-top shape.



Homeownership advisors will advocate for you. Let’s get real. For lenders and other mortgage professionals, homebuying is a business. Their goal is to close the deal. However, homeownership advisors are working for you. Their goal is to help homebuyers maneuver the homebuying process successfully. That means they’ll help you figure out what you need to do to be successful and they can help you to determine whether a deal will be in your best interest. Buying a house can be intimidating, but with a homeownership advisor in your corner, you’ll have the confidence you need.



Homeownership advisors can help you find free money.  The average homebuyer can expect to spend as much as $40,000 in one-time fees when buying a house, according to one study. However, there are programs that provide down payment and closing cost assistance. A homeownership advisor can tell you about sources of financial assistance that can help you.



Nobody wants to embark on a huge undertaking like buying a house alone. Thanks to homeownership advisors, you never have to.  Contact HomeFree-USA to speak to a homeownership advisor now.
