It is so much a part of human nature to ask questions that it seems that as soon as children learn to speak, they learn to ask. Children aren’t shy about asking questions, either. They will ask you questions from the profound to the simple with the same earnestness and curiosity.
As adults, though, most of us become more reluctant to ask questions. Too often in life, we assume that we should just automatically understand certain things if other people around us seem to understand them. It can be tempting to play along when things are over our heads, but honestly, how often does just pretending we know the answers ever work out in our favor? Usually it just leads to worse embarrassment! Instead of playing along, we really should be saying, “Wait…can you explain that?”
If you are not a real estate professional, then you are not supposed to have all the answers about the home buying process. Particularly is this the case with first-time home buyers. If you have a question, no matter how trivial or basic you think the answer might be, by all means ask it! Getting clear and direct answers to your questions is one of the greatest benefits of having personal contact with a real estate professional. Getting your questions answered will also help put your mind at ease and make you feel more relaxed and in control of your home buying experience.
When it comes to buying or selling a home, remember: It never hurts to ask!
