There will undoubtedly be different opinions on this quote, but this is also a great reason why you need to hire a solid real estate agent. A good agent will keep you from making mistakes they have seen people make before and ensure you have made a solid purchase.
Chances are, most of us will only purchase 3 or 4 homes at most in our lifetime, so while mistakes can be costly, perhaps it is with serious investors who are buying multiple properties that making the same type of mistakes over again could really start to affect you.

George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist, and political activist. His influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
