It can be hard to take away the emotional attachment you have with your home.  You may have watched children grow up, celebrated birthdays, and had cocktail hours with neighbors on the back patio, but now it’s time to move on.  You’ve experienced a lot in your home, you’ve lived there, cared for it, maintained it and now it’s time to sell. 

One of the first things your emotional attachment may affect is how you price your home.  Make sure your home is priced on the sale of other homes sold in your neighborhood.  Check out recent sales and current properties on the market.  Your real estate agent will be able to show you all the comparables in your neighborhood, and help you understand what a realistic asking price will be.

Keep in mind selling your home is a business transaction, there will be contracts to review, and papers to sign.  Your home is now a product you hope the consumer will love as much as you do!  Remember though there will be buyers who view your home and find things they don’t love about it.  Be sure to take the criticism in a constructive way.  Don’t let it get you down, it isn’t personal.

Having wide-ranging feelings about selling the home you’ve lived for decades, or even a short time, is perfectly normal.  Try your best to prepare yourself for what’s ahead.  Taking the time to mentally prepare yourself will very much help you during the marketing and sale of your home.

If you’re having a tough time grasping all these emotions be sure to communicate with your real estate agent how hard this process may be for you.  It’s okay to be emotional - selling your home is a big deal, just don’t let the emotions take over.

I’d be happy to help you with the sale of your home.  I have over 15 years real estate experience.  I have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process.  If you’re interested in finding out more about the current market, please reach out to me anytime.
