When it comes time to sell your home, there is no doubt that emotions can run high. It is an exciting time as you embark on a new venture, but can also be scary and stressful. Because of all these feelings, it is often easy to speak on things regarding your home before either taking the time to think or investigate.
Therefore, we offer these tips on what not to say when it comes time to sell your home in Sun Valley. Remember, often times less is more.
- "Our House is Perfect" To you, your house is probably perfect. You have a lot of memories in your home and therefore it can be easy to think of it as ideal. However, every house usually has something that may need fixing or repairing. Plus, if the home inspection reveals that your house is less than perfect, it could turn buyers off.
- "We've Always Wanted to Fix XYZ." Sometimes it may seem beneficial to share all the ideas you have had for your home. However, in doing that, you may end up telling your buyer that your home is not actually what they want. If they fall in love with your ideas for renovation they may go looking else where for it without having to put in the effort.
- "I Will Never Accept Less Than $X Amount" Everyone can understand that you will want top dollar for your Sun Valley home. However, remember real estate is about negotiation and you should always be open to all offers in order to start a conversation with potential buyers.
Luckily, a Sun Valley real estate agent can help guide you through this process and take a lot of stress out of the situation for you. Plus, by taking over a lot of the communication, we can mitigate any feeling of being overwhelmed.
