Emotions are for house hunting, not for auctions
Emotions are a great way to narrow down the search for your potential dream home – how a house feels is an important part of the decision-making process.
When it comes to auctions and staying in budget, you need to be colder than an industrial cool room. Skilled auctioneers will try to up the emotional state of the auction to entice people to bid more.
To combat this, practice being philosophical about the house. Like fish in the sea, remember that there are plenty of houses on the market and be ready to walk away once your budget is capped, confident there’s something more perfect out there that you just haven’t discovered yet.
