How Reality TV Gets Real Estate Completely Wrong

When I catch a glimpse of someone in my family watching a house buying show on TV, the thing that impresses me the most is how fairly young people have such a huge amount of money to spend on a house. But that’s far from the most unbelievable or inaccurate part of such shows. The process of finding a home to buy is never simple enough to fit into a 30-minute format, and you should not expect your experience to be anything like that. Another thing is how picky the buyers are -they never begin the search with an open mind.

Reality TV shows about real estate put too much emphasis on finding the perfect home, which is a serious mistake for would-be home buyers because the perfect is the enemy of the good. In other words, while would-be home buyers should make sure that the properties under consideration should match all of their most critical criteria and as many of the rest as possible, they should not let over-strict adherence to their criteria cause them to miss out on promising buys.

There are plenty of other ways that reality TV does not reflect a home buying experience. Read about them at Housely.
