Emotional buyer

This home buyer profile is part of our home buying quiz. Take the quiz here.

Relationships are your strong suit and you’re likely to seek out a real estate agent or a mortgage broker with whom you feel a rapport. Your relationships with your neighbours are also important to you, so you’ll tend to gravitate towards areas that offer a sense of community.

You may find yourself getting easily emotionally attached to certain properties, which can lead to extreme disappointment if a transaction falls through.

If you’re an investor, a property purchase to you represents a certain lifestyle rather than just cashflow. Money for you is valuable because of the emotions attached to the lifestyle it provides.

You tend to be a peacemaker and you try to avoid conflict. Tense negotiations with a seller or a competitive auction environment could be off-putting to you.

You’re detail-oriented and should have an easy time navigating the steps involved in securing finance and purchasing a home. However, you can also find yourself having trouble making decisions, which can lead to you missing out on properties.

Strengths of the Emotional buyer

  • Good at forming relationships with agents and brokers
  • Detail-oriented

Weaknesses of the Emotional buyer

  • Can have trouble making decisions
  • Can get the short end of negotiations due to fear of conflict

Your next steps

You might want to think about using a buyer’s agent. A buyer’s agent can help you navigate the market to find the best deals and can negotiate with sellers and agents for you. If you find you have a tendency to naturally avoid conflict, a buyer’s agent can take some of the stress out of the buying process by aggressively negotiating on your behalf.
