Congratulations, you bought a Berkshires property! That’s something to celebrate…right? Right?! Well, unfortunately, not every buyer feels like popping bubbly after they’ve closed on their Berkshires residence. “The grass is always greener” mentality may set in right after you shake hands with the sellers and part ways. Or right after you have made an offer on that Berkshire land or residence. Maybe it’s after the chandelier has dulled its shine, or the fireplace has lost its spark. Whatever the cause, second thoughts are so common that it they have become known as “Home Buyer’s Remorse”. So, what to do if you’ve signed the dotted line but wish you hadn’t?
