The Biggest Challenge to Selling (or Buying) a Home - Objectivity

Today, there seems to be quite a disconnect from reality by many folks.  Whether it deals with real estate or everyday life as folks have access to so called news or information that is just plain wrong.

Last week I was driving through one of the local Rockledge, Florida neighborhoods (Levitt Park) and noticed a man yelling at a garbage truck that had just driven past his front yard.  He was pushing a receptacle out toward the street as if to say "take this!"

My guess is he was yelling at the guys in the truck to stop.  They saw him I am sure but just kept going.

Why?

I quickly realized that they were picking up "recycle" garbage.  The guy yelling had "regular" garbage.

How did I know?

Because every trash receptacle in the entire neighborhood that afternoon was blue while he was running with a green one!  [Blue = recycle; green = regular refuse]

This reminded me of  some home sellers I have bumped into over the years who saw their home as being like the rest of the neighborhood homes while ignoring the difference.

Sometimes it is the appearance.  Sometimes it is the size. Sometimes it is noticeable neglected maintenance like a worn out roof.

If one really is motivated to sell they will be motivated to notice the differences among the competition and prepare their house for the market.

My guess it is just the human condition....seeing what one wants to see.  And it impacts buyers as well as sellers!

Thinking about selling your Rockledge, Florida home?  Call or text me at 321-693-3850.  A good local Realtor will help you see the differences among the competition and make recommendations to make prospective buyers stop and not just drive on by!

It does really seem extremely hard to be objective about your vision for your house because it's yours.
