Reasons to Heed Your Intuition When Purchasing a New Home
Purchasing a new home is a major life decision, an investment, and a consideration that should be taken seriously in all regards.
There are all sorts of clear logistical points to consider when you are planning to buy a new home, ranging from things like the location, the distance from good schools, the commuting time to your current job, and so on.
There is, however, also a good argument to be made for heeding your intuition when purchasing a new home, whether that means investigating the house and land packages at The Grove and zoning in on the ones that “feel right,” or whether it means allowing your emotional reaction to a place to carry a lot of weight, on the day of viewing.
Here are some reasons to heed your intuition when purchasing a new home.
Because your intuition can reflect subtle environmental cues that your conscious mind misses
Although human emotions are famously fickle, and can be misleading, it is nonetheless the case that our intuitions can often reflect a recognition of subtle environmental cues that our conscious minds have missed.
Often, when people “get a bad feeling” about a person or place, there will be subtle reasons behind that, which it’s frequently wise not to ignore.
Even if a potential home seems right on paper – a “bad feeling” in the pit of your gut may point towards some very substantial issues that you can’t quite consciously identify yet.
Because it is always easier to build positive experiences off of a positive foundation
When you move into a new home, you will obviously be deeply invested in turning the place into a positive environment, and in having positive experiences there, while also making some positive memories.
While it might be possible, in theory, to turn just about any environment into a positive place to be, with enough time, effort, and work, it is clearly easier to build positive experiences over a positive foundation.
Your intuition can help you to identify a place that already strikes the right chord with you on an emotional level, and that therefore enables you to “hit the ground running” as soon as you move in.
Because your intuition can help you to streamline and simplify the process of choosing a home
It’s face it: choosing a home is an immensely complex and time-consuming process, in most cases. Truth be told, there can be so many micro and macro decisions involved, that it can be easy to feel completely overwhelmed and to become totally disheartened by the whole process, in pretty short order.
Simply put, listening to your intuition can help you to streamline and simplify the process of choosing a home, by giving you a criterion that can radically whittle down the pool of potential options, in order to enable you to then be more decisive going forward.
