The excitement all started a couple of months ago when you made the decision to buy a house. You were pre-approved with a lender then on your way to meet with your realtor for a buyer consult to find the perfect new home! You saw a few houses you liked, but after weeks of searching you just couldn’t find “the right one.” So now you’ve given up hope, figured it just isn’t meant to be, and you’ve decided to wait a little longer before buying.
You’re thinking maybe 6 months, maybe a year? You think with time, you’ll have a better idea of what you’re looking for and more inventory will be available to choose from this time next year.
