4 Steps to a Stress-Free Sale

November 22, 2019

Ideally, when you sell your home, you want the process to go smoothly and

relatively stress-free. While things may happen that are outside your control,

there is a lot you can do to ensure that the selling experience is a good one.

Consider these four steps to reduce worry and stress when listing your home:

Step 1: Learn the selling process.

Find out what to expect when the FOR SALE sign goes up. How will viewings

be scheduled?  What happens when there is an offer? The more you know, the less mysterious—and, therefore, lessstressful—the experience will be.

Step 2: Schedule wisely.

Use a calendar to block out times for viewings and other selling-related

activities. Be sure to schedule plenty of time to clean and declutter your home

before a viewing or Open House. Try not to have a tight schedule during the

sales period.

Step 3: Anticipate issues.

The more problems you can foresee, the better you’ll be prepared to deal with

them as they arise. For example, if you know you’re going to have a busy

week at work, start making plans now to deal with viewings and related

matters during those days.

Step 4: Make decisions.

Things can move quickly in the real estate market. There might be a few days

when there are no enquiries at all, and then suddenly two offers will come in.

Be prepared to make some quick decisions. Fortunately, with sound advice

from me as your real estate agent, making those decisions will be a lot easier.

So, follow these simple steps. They’ll help make your sale less worrisome and

even enjoyable!
