As a realtor at Coldwell Banker Bain with more than 14 years of experience, I’ve worked with hundreds of buyers and sellers. I understand the emotion on both sides of the equation. Your home is full of memories.
It’s part of your personal history and story. As a result, sellers often get too close and too emotional when it’s time to sell their home. It happens when they start thinking about the holidays they’ve shared, and the memories made in their home.
It’s important to take a step back and recognize that selling your home is a transaction. It’s also an investment. Don’t let emotion prevent you from reaching the best outcome. Rely on your realtor to give the best counsel when negotiating terms and pricing because they have your
best interest in mind.
Remember, just because the new homeowners will have a chance to make the house part of their life story doesn’t take away from the memories you created in that home.
