It’s always amazing, as homeowners prepare their homes to sell or future buyers start their search for a new home, how much emotion is involved in this process. The range of emotions can run the gamut from happy, sad, scared, thrilled, worried, disappointed, excitement and everything in between. That’s a lot of ups and downs and they can happen in a short amount of time!
It’s important for homeowners wishing to sell to remember that it’s time to detach emotionally from their home. As homeowners begin to clean out, memories takeover of all the variety of milestones that took place in this home. Instead of being sad, try turning it into a positive. You have such wonderful memories of living in this home and it’s time to allow a new owner to experience those benefits. It’s also helpful to remember that you are moving for a reason. It’s time for a new journey, a new beginning, a new adventure and hopefully it’s an exciting time for you. Every stage can be good. Downsizing can be a blessing, as you clean out and clear clutter and lessen the workload and maintenance that you have to do.
Sometimes homebuyers can be worried because of the finances. Using a reputable mortgage company that will help you be realistic is very helpful. Unknowns can be scary, but with the guidance of a responsible Realtor, they will be there to guide you each step of the way.
In today’s market, disappointment can happen, especially for first time homebuyers who are finding they are making offer after offer and not getting the home of their dreams. Remember, it’s a process and most agents truly believe that things happen for a reason and the right home will be found and then there will be much excitement.
While purchasing or selling a home will probably be the biggest investment you will make in your lifetime, that’s just the point – it is an investment, one that you get to live in and enjoy for many days. It will hopefully give you a positive rate of return and a host of wonderful experiences. Just remember, don’t let the range of emotions cloud your judgement or the process. This truly should be a satisfying experience! If you need the assistance of a Fazendin agent, please don’t hesitate to seek out our services.
