When Pamela Herring bought her first home she didn’t open a bottle of wine to celebrate.
“I regretted [the purchase] the day after I moved in,” she said. “I had a meltdown and hated my home for a few months.”
Herring found support with her family and friends. “My family and friends helped a great deal. My sister told me I could come visit her any time. My parents told me I could stay with them any time I wanted. Everyone invited me over for dinner a lot, knowing how miserable I was. My friends were supportive and told me of their own home buying woes. I didn’t spend much time there if I could help it. I told myself I could always rent it out and move in with my parents again if it got too bad. My dad supported this.”
And in the end, sometimes the situation improves.
Herring said, “I still have relapses. It’s been a year and I like it much better now. I tell myself I can find a roommate if I get too lonely or if I’m mad about the house itself, I tell myself I can renovate or find another in a few years. It’s all negotiating with myself, but the feelings come and go now. It’s getting better … or I’m getting used to it.” http://www.yourhome.ca/homes/realestate/article/868816--when-buyer-s-remorse-extends-to-your-home
