It’s true that there is an easier and happier way to home ownership, but you can’t tread this path unless you walk away from the old process

“I believe that ‘GOMO’ or Grief Over Missing Out is a product of the current status of the property market, wherein home buyers are forced to competitively bid against each other just to own a handful of real estate for sale by owner,” observed Rick Otton, a mentor of many real estate experts in Australia.

A clinical psychologist from the University of Canberra, Anna Gordon, explained that GOMO is a combination of disappointment, stress, and despair over the chance of becoming homeowners, and this can lead some people to become clinically depressed.

She added that buyers who suffer from GOMO are usually the ones who invested a lot of time, money, and effort just to get a chance to bid on a property for sale, but still end up empty handed after every auction, (Domain.com.au reported on 9 November 2013).

“Most of the time, young home buyers immediately fall in love with a house for sale and they start imaging themselves living their lives within its rooms, only to find themselves being outbid by another person at an auction or a private sale,” according to Mr. Otton.

“GOMO, however, doesn’t only affect young home buyers and their families. People in their 40s are also suffering from clinical depression when they realize that they might end up homeless after retirement, because they still can’t afford to buy homes for sale,” he added.

“This rise of grief and anxiety over homeownership should be enough wakeup call that new processes are needed when buying and selling houses, and this means creating ways for people to become home owners without paying a large amount of deposit or applying for a new home loan,” Mr. Otton said in a new interview for his Power Property Profits Pack.

“It’s true that there is an easier and happier way to homeownership, but you can’t tread this path unless you walk away from the old process,” he shared.
