Lose to Win

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster - Fairfax Centre Sales

Many home sellers in today's market are struggling with the fact that their home is not worth what they hoped it would be. There is a psychological block in the mind of a seller which tells them that they just can't sell their home for less than what they paid for it. It can be a big shot to the ego. Pride kicks in and a defensive mode that limits a home seller from seeing the bigger picture becomes overwhelming.

It hurts! It's depressing! It's humiliating! It can make you feel like a failure! You fear judgement from others and the brutal judgement you have against yourself. You're afraid to let go of all the money you put down and all the payments you put into the home. Remember how long it took you to pick out colors and the weeks of painting? Remember furniture shopping for months trying to pick out all the perfect pieces for your new perfect home? Remember tearing out that old dated bathroom and turning it into a work of art? Remember bragging to all your neighbors about the recent appraisal you got and how much equity was packed into your wise investment?

As a Realtor, I feel the pain of my sellers daily and how it controls them. It keeps them from moving forward. Even so, every once in a while I meet a brave soul willing to let go of the past. Willing to think clearly and move forwad into a brighter future. Willing to lose $10,000 to win $50,000. Willing to lose so that they can win. That's what this article is all about. Letting go of the past and being present to see the amazing opportunity that is NOW. Interest rates are amazingly low hovering just below and above 4%. Here in Northern Colorado, there are plenty of opportunities to get into properties in very desirable locations with 10-25% equity. Thats a victory of anywhere from $20,000 to $60,000 based on a median home price of around $235,000!

If you are one of these brave souls fully aware of the opportunity that is now then get in touch with me and lets do business. I am ready to sell your home and get you into the next one!
