Sell A Home

If you are a homeowner who wants to sell a West Hills home but have been holding off because of the uncertainties, now you can stress less when selling. 

For some homeowners, the idea of selling your home is appealing, particularly when home values are on the rise. But there is at least one piece, if not a few aspects of the process, that tend to cause you stress.

Are any of these true for you?

For many people, the lack of control around the timing of when your home will sell creates anxiety. You have a timeline in which you want to sell. Or, in some cases, there is a hard deadline to close by a specific date. The thought of not selling by when you want, having a long process, or one that drags on would be difficult to manage.

Or maybe you are anxious about not knowing how much your house will sell for. You don’t know how much a Buyer will offer to pay for the house, but you have a desired price in mind. Maybe you need a certain amount to make your next move. Or you are at least hoping for a minimum offer for the sale to even make sense.

You worry that once you find a Buyer the offer will fall through. The thought of negotiating an offer with a Buyer makes you wary. Will it be something during inspections? Are they not qualified for financing? If a Buyer cancels, then here you go again. The process starts all over until you find a new Buyer.

Possibly you are unsure about the demands of preparing the home to sell. Will home improvements or repairs be required? Too many burdens, either to put the house on the market in the first place or those requested from a Buyer to continue with a sale, may be too much money, time, or hassle for you to handle.

If you are selling your home to buy a new one, the timing of the sale with the purchase of your next home could make you nervous. Being aware that housing inventory is low in many areas and understanding you may be competing against other Buyers for the same house, not knowing if you will be the winner, could potentially put you at risk of being homeless (albeit temporary) until you find a replacement home. It is not your ideal position to be in and one that certainly adds some stress.

The lack of control over the selling process, timeline, or unexpected aspects of selling a home is frustrating for many. There are so many steps involved for a Seller, and just as many for the Buyer to handle on their side. There are a lot of people involved which can complicate communications and timelines. You can only hope that everyone does their part to make it all happen on time.

Not knowing if buyers are seriously interested in your home can be worrisome. Will anyone want to see it? Make an offer? If they do make an offer, will they pull out if they find something better? Questions like these and others are common stressors for a home Seller.

Keeping the house clean and ready for showings can be a chore, especially if you are living in the home. Last minute showing requests or cancelations can be unpredictable. For some, leaving the house for showings can even leave you feeling vulnerable.

Whatever your personal circumstance or life event that is prompting you to sell your home, there are simply some things that you may find stressful. Even if you have sold homes in the past, some uncertainties will exist merely because you will not be able to control everything.

 

Now Imagine…

What it would be like for you to be less stressed and more certain about selling your home. Being free to feel the excitement about new opportunities to come. To envision yourself living in your next home, the one meets your family’s needs. Or moving closer to family, relocating for work, or getting the closure you need to move on.

You have sureness that your planning and preparation will result in a home sale that is successful for you. A sale that is successful because it is at a price your home is worth, is on a timeline that works for you, and closes with the least hassles.

You are clear on your end goals and have planned for variability to accomplish them. You have the insight and the knowledge you need to make the best decisions for you and/or your family.

You trust in the process to protect you; the support team you have chosen to care for you and your asset; in yourself to be happy. You are confident that now is the time for you to sell and to make your next move.

How Can You Sell Your Home with Less Stress and More Success?

We start by working through these three, key needs, all of which are incorporated in the 7-Step System.

1. Know how much you need to net to Make the Most Money.

What your home is worth is different from what you will walk away with, or net, after the sale. By understanding up front both the value range of homes like yours and the potential costs associated with selling a home, you can make choices along the way that allow you to make the most money from the sale.

2. Know what you need to do to sell with the fewest hassles.

Selling a home starts before putting it on the market. When you understand how prospective Buyers think, what makes your home more marketable, and the requirements of home Sellers, your time and resources can be spent on those items which result in the greatest return. So, you can sell with the fewest hassles.

3. Know what timeline you Need To close In The Least Amount Of Time.

Your timeline for closing impacts other decisions. There are a lot of steps to take and decisions to be made when selling a home. Many are dependent on another. Taking intentional steps, at the right time, and in the right order, will guard your timeline so you close in the least amount of time.
