For some homeowners, the process of listing, showing and selling their home can be stressful. Fortunately, there is plenty you can do to make it much less nerve-racking—and even exciting and enjoyable. Here are some ideas:
1. Make a plan. Decide when you’re going to show your property and block out these times in an agenda book or calendar if making your property available to show on short notice is not an option. That way, you and your family can plan for upcoming showings.
2. It’s important to build in flexibility when purchasing a home so you should try to be flexible with home viewing times. For example, you may plan to see homes for sale on Saturdays, but if the perfect home comes up for sale on a weeknight, give yourself room in your schedule to jump on it. Sometimes the early bird gets the worm!
3. Get stuff done early and allow time to get your home prepared to sell. Doing things last minute, such as finding a real estate lawyer or packing or getting rid of clutter, can quickly lead to stress and frustration. Whenever possible, get tasks done early. That way, you won’t have to worry about them.
4. Hire the right professionals. By far, the surest way to a stress-free move is to get the right professionals working for you: everyone from contractors to mortgage brokers to movers and packers.
