Are you wanting to move, but afraid to sell your home? Deciding to sell is a huge decision…not one to be taken lightly. It’s hard to leave the place you have called home for so long, but sometimes life requires change. Let us explore some of the common selling fears in hopes of putting your mind at ease.
The Fear of Spending Money on Repairs
While it’s true that buyers like to see a home in move-in-ready condition, it’s not always necessary to fix up everything. The rule of thumb is to do the repairs that add value to your home. If you only have a limited budget for updates and repairs, consult your real estate agent to help you decide what is most important and will give you the biggest return.
The Fear of the Work Required to Get Your House Ready to Sell
It’s a fact that getting your house market ready can be overwhelming. Instead of trying to do it all at once, break it up into small jobs. Tackle a couple of tasks each weekend until they are finished. Don’t let the fear of work keep you from reaching your dreams. You can even call on the help of friends or family. Serve them lunch and enjoy time together. It could actually turn into a fun day!
You Fear the Value of Your Home
While it isn’t a good idea to sell if you are upside-down on your mortgage, make sure you have an accurate estimate on the value of your home. Don’t rely solely on online estimates. A real estate professional can look at the upgrades and finishes inside your home giving you a better idea of what your home is worth. Great news!
