Aaaarghh! I Just Can't Decide!!! Let Me Ride On a Helicopter...

Don't PanicAs inventory increased in the years following the "sub-prime meltdown" and we switched from a "seller's market" to a "buyer's market", many buyers experienced MORE DIFFICULTY in making a puchase decision.

(OK, hold it, wasn't it supposed to be easier, now that there are more choices available...??)

The fact is that having MANY options sometimes OVERWHELMS buyers and causes BUYER PARALYSIS!

Buyers are comparing different types of homes (private sales, short sales, lender-owned, foreclosure auctions) that have different advantages and disadvantages, features. special prices, incentives and gimmicks.
