6 Habits of Successful Savers
We hear a lot of clients say they struggle with saving enough to reach their real estate goals. Whether it’s for a down payment or to purchase an investment property, saving feels like an always-out-of-reach task.
We want to tell you: We GET IT.
Today, we're here to drop some knowledge bombs to lighten the struggle if you’re feeling the same way.
Does saving take discipline? Sure.
Is it impossible? Not at all.
Clients who show up with big savings tell us similar stories of how they did it. (It's achievable, we promise).
It’s small, methodical choices that over time become habits, like:
→ Automate savings.
→ Set specific goals (and talk about them often).
→ Throw extra money at your goals (tax refunds, birthday gifts, bonuses, etc.)
→ Avoid lifestyle inflation (i.e. drive the old car and use the old phone).
→ Get out of debt and stay out of debt.
→ Say no when friends say yes.
→ Don't allow yourself excuses that break your savings routine ("Just this once," "I deserve it," "But it's Christmas").
Trust us, it’s far easier to save a little here and a little there than to give up on your dream of owning real estate altogether.
