Stress Relief for Home Sellers

Image of a happy family in front of a house. Stress relief for home sellers.If you’re selling your home, you may be yearning for some stress relief. Did you know that selling your home is regarded as one of the most stressful life experiences? In fact, it’s ranked right up there with divorce, bankruptcy, and even the loss of a loved one.

If you think about it, it makes sense. After all, no one likes strangers roaming through their home, engaging in contracts and price negotiations, working against deadlines, or even dealing with the whole moving process in general. It’s enough to make even the calmest person feel stressed.

To make the home selling process easier and less stressful, keep these stress relief strategies in mind.

1. Remember your “why”: Chances are you’re moving for a reason that is important to you. What is it? Are you needing more space for a growing family? Downsizing so you can travel the world? Embarking on an exciting career in new city? Whatever your reason for selling, keep that “why” firmly in mind as you navigate stressful times. By doing so you’ll be more motivated to stay the course.

2. Lean on your Realtor: Remember that your Realtor has been through hundreds if not thousands of real estate transactions. He or she has “seen it all,” and can probably offer much advice on everything from pricing and negotiations to home staging and interacting with buyers. If you have a good Realtor working for you, there’s no reason for you to ever feel like you’re “in it alone.” Let your Realtor help you every step of the way so you can experience some true stress relief.

3. Let things go: When you’re selling your home, you’ll likely encounter things you simply cannot control. Maybe the last five families who viewed your home felt it wouldn’t work for them. Perhaps you secured a buyer but their financing fell through. Or maybe a natural disaster hit your area and home sales have temporarily stagnated. These are all things you can’t control, so why devote energy to worrying about them? Instead, let go of what you can’t control and focus only on what you can.

Stress relief when selling your home is possible when you take steps to deal with stress in the most productive way. Let us help you navigate the home selling process. Contact us today!
