5 Ways to Make the Selling Process Stress-Free

For some homeowners, the process of listing, showing and selling their home can be stressful. Fortunately, there is plenty you can do to make it much less nerve-racking—and even exciting and enjoyable. Here are some ideas:

 

     1. Make a plan. Decide when you’re going to show your property, search for a new home, view listings, etc.                         Block out these times in an agenda book or calendar. That way, you and your family can see what’s coming up.

 

     2. Be flexible. Few things go exactly as planned! So, it’s important to build in flexibility. For example, you may plan to           see homes for sale on Saturdays, but if an opportunity comes up on a weeknight, give yourself room in your                     schedule to jump on it.

 

     3. Eat well. There are numerous studies that connect poor nutrition with increased stress. When people are selling             and moving, there’s a tendency to rely on quick fixes, such as hot dogs and pizza! Try to plan more nutritious                   meals that will keep everyone healthy and energized.

 

     4. Get stuff done early. Doing things last minute, such as finding a real estate lawyer or getting rid of clutter, can                   quickly lead to stress and frustration. Whenever possible, get tasks done early. That way, you won’t have to worry           about them.

 

     5. Hire the right professionals. By far, the surest way to a stress-free move is to get the right professionals working               for you: everyone from contractors to mortgage brokers to movers.
