According to an older NAR article I was reading, here are the biggest worries that all sellers have.

17% of Sellers - Getting enough money to recover what I put into the house (I'm sure this # is a little higher today!)

14% - Worry about the hassle of keeping their home in constant showcase condition

11% - Worry about closing on time to meet their relocation deadline date

11% - Worry about selling in time to buy the house they want before it sells to someone else.

8% - Worry about temporary housing and a second move

7% - Worry about finding an effective, trustworthy real estate agent

6% - Worry about the contract from the buyer whose financing falls through

5% - Worry about Emotional strain of uprooting and moving all my things

5% - Worry about the hassle and time involved in fixing up to sell.

5% - Worry about the inspection revealing need for costly repair

5% - Worry about Physical chore of boxing and moving everything

2% - Worry about the cost of fix-ups to get ready to sell

2% - Worry about coping with trauma the kids will experience in a move

= Equals a 98% rounded number due to the NAR Rounding

Whew That sure is a lot of worries so next time I am on a listing appointment I will be sure to address any concerns as I usually do but will keep this list as a handy tool!

It can be stressful when you move and I totally understand it!
