Real Estate: The Myth of the ‘Number’ and ‘Overpaying’

Buying or selling a home is not rocket science.
I mean, how hard can it be?
Buyers have a pretty good inventory to choose from, at least in San Clemente.
Sellers have a relatively robust market to sell into–escrows are closing at a decent pace.
In other words, the free market is working just fine.
Both parties have competent guidance easily available to them, such as real estate agents, escrow people, loan officers, home inspectors and other professionals. Even “short sellers” get to have attorneys at no charge to them.
So why is it that most prospective buyers fail to buy even after six months of looking, and most prospective sellers fail to sell within that same time period?
They’re only hurting themselves.
Many buyers think they know what they want, but they really haven’t made up their minds. They say they want four bedrooms close to good schools, but then find themselves falling in love with smaller homes with ocean views. Agents have a saying for this: “Buyers are liars.”
But buyers aren’t really liars–they just often fail to really commit to solving their housing needs. Everyone would like a better home to live in, but very few make a solid commitment to do anything about it. The result: Lookie Loos.
