The truth about home-selling

If you think buying a home is challenging, selling your home. Home-selling can be even more stressful than home-buying.

It doesn’t matter if it is your first time or your fourth time, there are many hurdles to overcome to successfully sell your East Naperville Home.


What are the top challenges of home-selling?


  1. If you haven't sold a home, be forewarned.


Many emotions come to play during the selling process. You'll feel excitement, uncertainty, nervousness and sometimes even remorse during the process. It can be emotionally challenging, and at times some clients would say it is like a roller-coaster ride.


Giving up a home you have formed  an attachment to and associate with significantly good memories can cause emotional stress. When potential buyers criticize your home, you sometimes feel like it is a personal attack against you.


  1. Another challenge you have to face is the local market conditions, which affect how fast or slow you can sell your home or not. You should know what type of market your home exists in to better understand how to market your home.


If your home is in an area with many homes for sale you are probably experiencing a buyer's market. This means potential home-buyers have more opportunity to shop for the home they want and there is a higher chance your home may not sell.


  1. Choosing a real estate agent to work with is another challenge. There are so many real estate agents to choose from it can be hard to know which one to work with. Working with an experienced agent makes the process easier.


  1. Setting your East Highland Naperville home price is another difficult matter.  An overpriced home is hard to sell and will end up on the market for a long time, while an underpriced home means leaving money on the table.


But do not despair. There are ways to overcoming these challenges, and I will teach you how.


So how do you overcome these challenges?


To cope with these challenges, I would like to suggest three things I have learned from dealing with clients in my many years as a REALTOR ®.


  1. Emotional connection to the home makes things difficult. Learn to detach yourself to keep your emotions in check, and help you understand a potential buyers perspective when the home receives criticism.


  1. Find a competent and efficient real estate agent, like me Teresa Ryan. Skills and experience make a real estate agent good. I like to make the home-selling process as easy as possible for my clients by being with them each step of the way, answering questions, helping stage the home, preparing documents, etc.


When you have found a competent REALTOR®, you will understand the market better because you have an expert who can clarify and discuss things with you. Pricing your home is easier because you have all the right information and you know you have someone trustworthy backing you up.


  1. Fix, update and stage your home. Make your home rise above the competition by updating its fixtures and properly staging it. Repairs, updates and correct staging can make your home look more attractive and pleasant. These things take time and a little budget but in the long run, it will help your home sell faster.


Selling your East Highland Naperville home is not easy, but with my help, it will be manageable and less stressful. Visit my website  for more tips on how to prepare your home for selling.
