How to Reduce the Stress in Deciding to List Your Home.

For many people, deciding whether or not to sell their home is a major decision.  So, it’s not unusual to feel anxiety.  In fact, it may even REALLY stress you out!  Big decisions, like listing your home can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there are several ways to eliminate the stress.

One way is to get the decision on paper (or screen).  When you can see it written out, and you have a clear plan, it becomes a lot less daunting and more manageable. 

KNOW your market. Anxiety thrives on uncertainty.  So, enlist a local Realtor you trust to help you find out what you need to know about the current market. Have them do up a comparable market analysis (CMA). Which will tell you how long similar homes in your neighbourhood were on the market, and what the average sale prices were.  If, you are also buying look at the area in which you want to move and what the homes you like are selling for.  Another key piece, is to get pre-approved for a mortgage so you know what you will be able to afford.

Dwelling and over-thinking big decisions can be a thing that stops people from moving forward towards their goals.  But focused planning based on facts, will help you move forward one step at a time, towards moving into your next dream home.
