In my years as a real estate agent — I’ve seen one single unifying theme that seems to rear its ugly head in almost every single transaction — Fear. Fear of the market — “Is now the right time to buy?” Fear of making a mistake — “What if there’s something wrong with the house I want to buy?” And, yes, even fear of Realtors themselves, “What if I pick someone that won’t protect me?” It paralyzes people from taking any sort of action. Rather than POTENTIALLY making some sort of error, they prefer instead to sit endlessly in their rented apartments, flushing month-after-month of money down the drain — when they could be taking real, tangible steps to getting a home of their own. Here on the Clarified Realty Podcast, week after week, we will be interviewing experts in every facet of real estate (lenders, accountants, financial advisors, home inspectors — just to name a few) and provide realistic insights and advice into how you can make the process more understandable and less overwhelming. Whether you’re buying or selling, we will take you step-by-step down the path and show you that real estate is nothing to ever, ever be afraid of. All you need to do is take the first step.
