Putting your home on the market ultimately comes with anxiety. That fear often holds our clients back from making a decision that would be financially life-changing for them and their family. But this process doesn’t have to be that way! Here are three fears that sellers have, and why they aren’t as bad as you think.
“I Can’t Juggle My Day-to-Day and The Selling Process”
The selling process is often a daunting one. You already work hard to keep your day-to-day schedule afloat! However, with the proper expectations and preparations, the process WILL go a lot smoother.
Creating a selling strategy with a real estate specialist will help ease your mind. A qualified local realtor can help you make a list of everything you need to do to get your home on (and off) the market. Tapping into a local network of contractors through your realtor can also make the process much less burdensome. You’re not in this alone!
“My Home Needs Too Many Repairs”
Many homes can sell at MUCH higher prices with just a few simple repairs/additions. A good Realtor can work as your project manager when you’re getting your home ready for the open house. Which repairs should be prioritized? Which can be left for the buyer? A great realtor knows how to get the most bang for your buck.
The beauty of making repairs is that YOU get to decide how much time/money you put into the prep. If you’re okay with giving up money on the total sale price to save some time, just sell the home as-is. Again, a Realtor’s network is invaluable when contracting out work and making sure the job is done right the first time.
“My Home Will Take Forever to Sell”
ANY home will sell for the right price. It’s the market conditions that ultimately determine the perfect selling price. That’s why it takes an agent who is well versed in local market information who can help you interpret and analyze the data.
Griffin Realty Group has consistently knocked our time estimations out of the park in the North Houston area. In this last month, we sold our homes on an average of fewer than 12 days after listing. We can make sure you don’t feel like the process is dragging on, while still making sure to get the selling price you need.
If you’re ready to down-size, up-size, or anything in between, we are here to help. Forming relationships with our clients is our number one focus. The home-selling experience has long been dreaded by homeowners. We are on a mission to turn this process into an adventure they are excited to embark on!
And at the end of it all, we will celebrate together!
