Staying Positive while Waiting for Your Home to Sell

Staying Positive while Waiting for Your Home to Sell

Moving is deemed one of the most stressful time periods in peoples lives.  This is especially true if you are prone to negative feelings.  Selling your home can be tough, as you might receive negative feedback fromcriticism viewings.  What do you do when that happens?

My advice to you is to take it with a grain of salt.  I've heard all kinds of feedback over my career.  Some buyers will nitpick at very minor issues such as paint hue or choice of linoleum.  Other times the feedback, while critical, might tell you where to focus your efforts in order to get your house sold.  Are you constantly being told that the home is priced too high?  Is the feedback maybe regarding pet odour?  While you might feel slightly offended at first, if these are valid claims, you may need to make minor revisions in order to get your home sold.  If this is the case, stay focused on the end goal.  Once your home is sold, you are free to move on, move out, and move up!
