How to Prepare Your Home for Sale
Time To Let Go and Disassociate Yourself With Your Home
The decision has already been made to sell the home - so it's now time to get your
head in the game and realize that the house has now become a "product" and that
from this point forward this is a business transaction. There are many things you can
do to help the house sell more quickly and for more money and we will cover some of
those in the next steps - but for now you need to come to peace with the process.
Say to yourself, "This is no longer my home; it is just a house -- a product to be sold much like an item on a store shelf".
Make the mental decision to "let go" of your emotions and focus on the fact that soon this house will no longer be yours and you will be moving on to a new home that you will love even more..
Picture yourself handing over the keys and envelopes containing appliance warranties to the happy new owners!
Say goodbye to every room.
Don't look backwards -- look toward the future and all the great times ahead and new memories to be made in your next home. This is going to be an exciting journey - embrace
