How Emotions Can Get in the Way of Selling

Like most homeowners, you probably dont think of your property as just a building with rooms and a backyard. To you, its much more than that. Its a home.

When you walk into your dining room, for example, you dont merely see the table and chairs. You see memories. You recall laughter with family and friends. Its emotional. Thats what a home is all about.

However, buyers dont want to buy your home. What they really want to buy is a property that has the potential to become their home.

While you see memories of family dinners, they see room dimensions and what the dining room may look like with their furniture in it.

Thats why, when youre selling your property, you need to keep emotions at bay as much as possible.

In fact, the best mindset is to think of your property as a product. The more attractively you present that product to prospective buyers, the more likely you are to get good offers.

Thats why cleaning, depersonalizing, and staging are so important.

Its also why setting a price that aligns with your homes current market value is important. You may have put your heart and soul and many weekends into landscaping the backyard to make it a summer oasis. It may, in fact, be a strong selling point of your property. But that improvement will only add to the selling price an amount that the market, not your emotions, dictates.

So keep emotions out of the selling process as much as possible. Save that energy for turning your next property into your dream home.
