Inspiration for 5/19/19
This milky white and desert sand petal Magnolia stole my heart! After all the rain we have had this spring in North Dallas, Texas, I was reminded of a quote I heard years ago. The intention of this post is to give sellers hope for the right timing to list.
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to bloom.

Do many sellers want to know when is the best time to sell? Yes! Of course! The best time is when you're ready because you already focused on all the details with your Real Estate Agent, you know what to expect by reviewing all the paperwork in advance, and went over a contract to get familiarized with items you can be prepared to negotiate with to make the process easier and the sale worthwhile for you. Also, it is important to get a range of estimated Seller's Net within a range of high to lowest sales price you would be willing to accept, knowing, terms of the contract may change with sales price, closing date, type of financing, etc. Waiting for the perfect time to list and trying to time the market rarely works to your advantage. Getting rid of emotional attachment is not easy; however, to succeed, releasing emotional attachment helps if you make it a high priority. If a seller waits too long, they take the risk that their perfect buyer already moved on and may have settled for a different property. Believe it or not, even after the sale, some buyers continue to peruse through the MLS, Realtor.com, or other third party websites to see what other homes are just listed and they wonder, did I buy on impulse? Missing the perfect home because it wasn't on the market at the right time causes some buyers remorse. My goal is to prepare the seller in advance.
