Selling your home is an emotional undertaking

Selling your home


It’s not just four walls and a roof – it’s not just a house. When you nurture countless memories in the place that you’ve called home for many years, it becomes a symbol of family, rest and security.


Because of this, selling a home is one of the most difficult things to let go. Emotions tend to run high when putting your home on the market. Aside from finding a buyer and closing the sale, you are often faced with other equally important tasks, such as finding and moving to another home, figuring out the financial obligations that go hand in hand with a home sale and/or home purchase.


“How much should I price my home? My house can’t be priced less than the house next door!”


“I don’t want potential buyers going through my stuff! I don’t know who these buyers are, how can I make sure these people coming to my house won’t break anything?”


“What if I can’t sell my home?”


“Do I have to pay taxes for selling my home?”


“I have too much stuff that I need to let go!”


These are just a teeny bit of the issues that could confront a home seller.  Wouldn’t it be a relief if a large chunk of your worries were entrusted to an expert? Especially those that need a more objective disposition such as pricing and marketing your home?


Having a concerned, but unbiased, third party helps you stay focused on all other issues you are faced with. Leave the selling to the real estate agent who has done this many times over.


You need an experienced Realtor® on your side!

This helps to remind everyone involved that this is more than just making a sale.

The emotions that go with selling a house can interfere with an objective assessment of the true potential value of the property.
