Plan for it. Expect that you will have buyer’s remorse. Keep all the notes you took in your home-buying process and all the information you gathered that helped you come up with the offer. If you feel a tinge of buyer’s remorse, review these materials.
Plan a celebration, even a small one, for the moment you find out your offer was accepted. A favorite bottle of wine, a special dinner, those decadent chocolates, all can be part of your celebration of homeownership.
Avoid the well-intentioned friends and family who are always bragging that they could have gotten it cheaper. These braggarts get great joy in putting down other people’s decisions. Ignore them.
Above all, do not let your buyer’s remorse push you into making a costly mistake.
