Why shouldn’t we Fall Prey to These Common Lifestyle Segmentation Scams?
The other day I was scrolling through a Facebook page and saw this post written by a friend. It was about a friend who had just split from his spouse. It went on to talk about how this person chose to live separate from his spouse, how he had made a conscious effort not to fall for this behavior too often. Also, how he didn’t recognize he was falling for this behavior. The problem is people are often too busy to realize when they’re falling for a lifestyle segmentation scam.
Sure you might have seen a friend or relative fall for a similar scam once before.
But that was months ago and you’re probably too busy to think about it any longer. I’ve seen many friends and family members fall into the trap of buying a house they didn’t want.
Most people fall prey to the same lifestyle segmentation scams they’ve seen before. But this time they’ve caught on that they’ve fallen prey to something much bigger.
They’ve been duped into thinking that they’re buying a brand new home that will make them feel like a million bucks. But in reality, what you’re really buying is a brand new home that they may have to spend years living in.
What is the key to these scams?
The key to these scams is that they use the same type of consumer psychology we use when we buy a car or a house. The trick is convincing the consumer that they’ll be living in a safe and secure environment. But in reality, they’re living in a house that may or may not actually be safe. The same is true with most home-buyers.
For many people, the home is the only place they have the kind of safety they crave. But the truth is, we don’t always have a choice in this matter.
In fact, many times, we make the choice to buy a home because we want a comfortable place to live, not because we’re being forced to. The truth is that most home-buyers use the home as a place to live their lives, not as a place to live a life.
We don’t all want to live in a place where we are forced to live our lives. Sometimes, we just want a safe place to live our lives. So when we see an ad for a house that will have a security system, we are more than likely going to check it out to see if it actually has what we need in it for our safety.
Not all home buyers make the same mistake.
For example, I had a family member tell me he was planning to move for the sake of the children in the house, and his wife. And I had a very heated discussion about it. In the end, I convinced him that he had plenty of reasons to live in a house where security is a consideration. For me, the main reason was the kids were already in the house.
