How to Avoid Buyer Fatigue

Whether you are looking to purchase property in Sydney or Canberra for the first time or you are a seasoned real estate investor, the purchasing journey always starts with good intentions and a lot of excitement.

That’s why everyone wants to start the process alone; it seems to come easily, and everything is full of positivity… until it isn’t.

Suddenly you are six weeks in:

  • You’ve missed out on one or two dream homes.
  • At auction after auction, you can’t even get close to a bid.
  • You’re driving out to locations disappointed every weekend with no time to relax.
  • Your nights are spent doing hours of tedious research.
  • You’re in a rush, sick of the process and tempted to settle on a sub-par property…

And before you know it, you’re almost set to make a million-dollar mistake buying the wrong home.

Sound familiar? 

If so, this overwhelming sense of frustration is what we call buyer’s fatigue and if left unmanaged, it can quickly become buyer’s remorse that lasts years.

So, how can you get on top of buyer fatigue and reinvigorate the excitement of buying Sydney, Canberra or NSW property? That’s exactly what we will cover in this article.

How to avoid real estate Buyer Fatigue

1. Recognise that it’s normal

First of all, it’s important to realise that property buyer fatigue is normal and incredibly common. As Buyers Agents, we buy property in Canberra and Sydney for clients every day and virtually every one of them we speak to has felt this feeling at some point along the way.

It means you’re not alone! Virtually all of your competition is also trying to piece together the complicated puzzle that is purchasing real estate.

So, take a deep breath and reassure yourself; you aren’t the only one.

2. Take a step back.

To decompress further, we recommend taking a step back from the property buying process in the short term.

Instead, spend the weekend at Bondi Beach or go on that weekend hike in the National Parks around Canberra. Whatever it is you enjoy doing, just try to take your mind off of the property-buying process for a short while.

A little bit of rest in the short term will be worth it once you finally land that forever home.

3. Revaluate your position and property goals

With a fresh perspective, it’s time to reconsider your budget. Then re-evaluate the Sydney or Canberra property market and where your purchasing power currently stands. Have you been on the right track?

Now consider your non-negotiables. Have you moved too far away from your initial property goals? Have you over-compromised? Are you searching in the right areas?

Maybe the purchasing process has led you to change your mind on certain things, and that’s okay. The important point is that you don’t want to settle out of impatience. It’s better to stay true to your goals whilst making sure they remain realistic in a changing real estate market.

4. The final step

After all this, you may find that your fall straight back into a cycle of fatigue. Or maybe the thought of following the above steps is fatiguing in and of itself and you’re after a quicker solution.

While these recommendations can get you back on the right path in the short term, many still don’t want to continue.
