Time to sell your home?
Of all the things you own, your home probably stirs up your emotions more than anything else.
The day you bought it, you felt happy and relieved and pained all at once—you loved your new house, and the search was finally over, but wow, that was a lot of money! When an appliance died or the roof sprung a leak, you felt frustrated. The compliments you received on your redecorating made you proud.
And the day you decide to sell, you feel every emotion under the sun.
As a home seller, you try your hardest to be practical and see your home through buyers’ eyes. But let’s be honest—that probably stings a little bit! What you call charming quirks they call imperfections in need of repair. And then your emotions surface.
Practical, shmactical—you’re feeling sentimental, darn it!
Here’s what’s going on: A lot of those emotions can be traced to pride. You’ve grown attached to your home, no matter how much you’re ready to move on. It’s a reflection of you, after all! You’ve spent years making memories in it and decorating it in a way that expresses who you are. And to you, those things are priceless. So it’s easy to take criticism personally.
Here’s how to make that happen:
Know that it’s normal to feel some attachment to your home, but don’t allow that attachment to lead to overpricing. An overpriced home will turn away buyers before they even have a chance to look at it. And those who do like what they see will probably put in a more reasonable offer anyway. Instead of overpricing, focus on bringing out the best your home has to offer to get the best price possible: Make simple repairs, clean it until it shines, and stage it well! Then work with a real estate pro to find an asking price that’s fair.
When the criticism starts rolling in, remember that it’s not personal. Lower-than-expected offers and contract negotiations that request repairs are normal, so don’t take offense or assume those offers aren’t serious. If you hold out for a higher offer or one that doesn’t ask for as many concessions, you might be waiting forever! A real estate pro can help you navigate stress and negotiate a deal both you and your buyer can be happy with.
A successful home sale means you and your family can get on with your life—in a new house that you can make your home.
