Selling Your Lakeland FL Homes – Are You Physically and Mentally Prepared?

Selling your Lakeland FL Homes – Are you physically and mentally prepared?

Selling your house can be quite stressful and more so if you do not even have a real estate agent working with you. If you don’t hire an agent, there’s a good chance that your work and even your health would be affected. Selling any kind of property is a time-consuming process as well as requiring expert skills. Free yourself from unnecessary worries by relying on a full-time real estate agent to sell your property at the best price possible.

Are you financially prepared for what could happen after selling your house in Lakeland FL?

Money won’t be a problem after selling your house but if and only if you haven’t taken out a mortgage on your home or you are up to date with your mortgage payments. If not, then there’s a good possibility that much of the proceeds – or even all of it – would just go to your creditor.

If the latter is true, then you would need to save money before selling your house. Once you sell the house, you will need extra funds to spend on the following:

  • Deposit or advance rent for your new home
  • Closing fees
  • Moving and relocating expenses

Only when you have reached the point that you can answer ‘yes’ to all the questions listed here should you push through with your decision to sell your home in Lakeland FL.

Petra, excellent point, in fact, I just had some sellers who were not mentally prepared and it became very clear once offers came in.

Hi Petra,

Most people worry about being financially prepared before going into a sale, but they forget about being emotionally and mentally prepared. I think hiring a good trustworthy and reliable agent and having realistic expectations would help a lot in keeping the process as stress-free as possible. Keep up the good work as a top Lakeland FL short sale agent!
