If you’re on the hunt for a house, it’s easy to fall into the trap of wanting to see EVERYTHING out there. Many people have the tendency to feel like they might miss out of they don’t see every conceivable option. Barry Schwartz, in his fantastic book The Paradox of Choice, refers to these people as Maximizers.
The problem? Maximizers end up being LESS satisfied with their purchase! Believe it or not, the more options we have, the less satisfied we are with out choice.
When shopping for a home, it is actually a far better approach to narrow your search and look at fewer homes - say, 5 to 15 - that closely match what you’re looking for. You’ll probably find that you’re happier with the results!
