The Home-buying process can be stressful on a couple.  Justin Newark, psychologist  & co-president of the Psychoanalytic Couple & Family Institute of New England suggests a plan to help Couples remain as stress free as possible while in the process of purchasing a home.

Newark suggests to:

  • Set Priorities and make choices throughout the home-buying process as equal partners.  Having one decision maker can cause the other to "grudgingly" accept things they may not agree with.  Having both people on board with decision making establishes a sense of ownership through out the process.

  • Treat the home purchase like a business deal.  Stay focused on negotiations in which each person compromises.

  • The best way to start out - Each person should make a list of things that matter the most to him/her in order of preference;

                    examples: home office, open floor plan, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, etc.
