Selling Can Be Such an Emotional Ride

I have helped folks move for the past 19 years and selling your home is never as easy as it looks! The emotional roller coaster can be about as wild a ride as being at the Fair. Does any of this sound familiar?


I’m going to list my house for sale…”I am sooooo excited” I bet it will sell really, really quickly.

  • Oh my goodness I forgot how much preparation, purging and cleaning/fixing there was to do. I am exhausted! But it will sell really really fast for top dollar!

  • My house looks beautiful now that it is listed - I am so proud of my house, Sigh!

  • This is crazy, I have to clean my house for every showing, my light/stereo and gas bill for my fireplaces are through the roof, my flower and candle consumption are out of control, and then…… the people don’t even show up! Grrrrrrr.

  • Price Reduction? Again?? The market is really that bad?

  • Yeah… an offer is coming, thank goodness I was just about to give up….my faith is renewed Smile

  • What do you mean they want to pay only that much? Seriously? Who do they think they are? Absolutely Not!

  • Oh alright then, I can live with those terms…I guess its okay.

  • Inspections? Subjects? Oh no…what if they back out…I will have to start cleaning all over again…..please, please, please!

  • Yeah we’re sold!!! I am soooooo excited

  • I hate packing, Never again! What was I thinking?

 Some tips to minimize your stresses;

  • Work with a REALTOR who you trust and will have your best interests in mind, mixed with a dash of compassion and understanding. This way you can rest assure that the “other” details will be looked after by a professional.

  • Accept  the process and plan for it

  • Know that your house will sell; I have seen it over and over and over again. Just relax and let it happen.

Happy Selling! Ps Buying is going to be a cinch!
