Remove Emotion when Selling

Remove Emotion when Selling

If you’re too emotionally tied to your house, you may end up overpricing the listing and making hasty decisions based on emotions rather than facts, real estate professionals say.

Selling a house without being affected by emotions isn’t as simple as saying the words. It is, after all, your house. Emotional attachment is a normal reaction. Avoiding your emotions when selling your home quickly and for top dollar may be accomplished in a variety of ways. Here are a few tactics to consider:

  • You should only see the sale of your home as a commercial transaction. Redirect your thoughts and feelings to the new house you’ll soon be moving into.
  • Personal objects should be stowed away, such as awards and family photos. Instead, make your house into a product.
  • Don’t get offended if a potential buyer tells you that they don’t like the color of your deck.
  • Please don’t base your decision to accept or reject a buyer’s offer on whether or not you like them.

It’s important to question oneself, “Am I making this choice because of the facts or because of my emotions?” If you get “fact” as a response, you’re probably in good shape.
