When you’re considering selling your home, I think it’s important to know what your motivation is. I mean, what’s moving you… what’s your motivation to sell. This page is short, sweet, and to the point about home selling tips on motivation.
When I say motivation, I don’t mean you need to be that one desperate seller in the neighborhood who dumps the price for a quick sale. When I talk about motivation, I’m really talking about the two most important question you need to answer before before putting your home on the market:
- Why are you wanting to move?
- How soon would you like your move to happen?
So what’s moving you? Why are you wanting to sell your current home? Are you outgrowing your existing home or looking for a scale down? Are you wanting to be closer to work or schools, or are you relocating? Maybe you’re selling an inheritance or investment property and want to free up cash for something else. What’s your “why?”
In a perfect world, how soon would you like that to happen? It’s important to not only nail down your reason you’re wanting to sell, but the time frame in which you would like to make it happen in.
The answer to these two questions will determine how you price your home, and how much effort you will put into making your home presentable inside and out.
Selling a house isn’t an easy thing to do, but it can be much easier to plan out your home selling strategy if you understand your motivation for selling and the time frame you would like it to happen in.
Long gone are the days of pounding a sign in the yard and waiting for a buyer to knock on the door. With web savvy home buyers looking online and researching listings in neighborhoods it is more difficult to sell, but it doesn’t have to be frustrating.
