New Year, New You
Is your goal this year to buy a home? It’s no secret that keeping your New Year’s resolution is a difficult task. Only 8% of Americans who set a resolution stick with it throughout the year. We at the Florida Manufactured Housing Association want to help you reach your goals. Here are four tips to guide you in your journey to buy a manufactured home:
Clear as a Bell
Create clear and measurable goals. Do your research using our home buying guide to determine which community and floor plan is right for you. If you set specific dates, attainable numbers, and a tangible vision, you will be unstoppable in reaching your goal.
It’s important to challenge yourself, but it’s also important to be realistic with your goal setting. Saving money to buy a home can seem overwhelming – at first. If you start small by simply setting aside extra change or contributing a few bucks a week, before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to buying your first home.
Spread the Word
Speak your goals into existence! Tell as many friends and family members as possible. When you discuss your New Year’s resolutions with loved ones, they are more likely to hold you accountable. The more people that know, the more people will ask you how your home-buying journey is going, and that will motivate you to keep going!
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
One reason it’s hard to stick to your New Year’s resolution is because there are very few real consequences – so create one for yourself. Make a bet with a buddy or use personal incentives to keep yourself motivated.
2019 is your year! FMHA challenges you to be a part of the few that stick to their New Year’s resolution this year – you can do it, we believe in you.
