Selling Your Atlanta Home: Ease the Stress in Three Easy Steps


Posted by Wendy G Brown on Jan 6, 2016 in Real Estate

Here are a few pointers for how you can keep your stress level low and your attitude positive while you're selling your Atlanta home.

Queue the Clean-Up!

It may seem like a bad time to take on such a task, but de-cluttering your home can have a positive impact on your mental health throughout the selling process. Instead of saving all the cleanup and clutter until the last moment when you’re trying to get your family out under the closing deadline, do some spring-cleaning early. By looking through the items in your bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen – and getting your family involved – you can make the packing up that will come down the road a much more straightforward overall a less stressful task.

Maintain an Optimistic Outlook!

This might sound a little obvious, but maintaining a positive attitude towards the sale of your home is one of the key factors in minimizing your stress level. It can be quite easy when you’re putting your home on the market to get ahead of yourself and hope that each viewer is a potential buyer. Not everyone who comes through your home will buy unfortunately. There is no need to stress yourself out when your home doesn’t immediately sell. According to a November 2015 study by realtor.com the average amount of days homes spent on the market is 61 days, or 2 months and a day. By maintaining a positive attitude, you can enjoy the last memories you and your family will be making in your home, and you can think ahead for what you’ll have to do when selling time comes with a more positive outlook.

Move It All Out!

It’s not likely that everyone will be able to take advantage of this option, but if you have good friends or close family in the area, you may want to consider moving in with them while your home is on the market. Doing so can allow you to can be ahead of the game when crunch time comes and you have to move out. While this option may lead to other types of stress, it can severely minimize all of the things you’ll have to do when you sell your home since you’ll only have to worry about moving in to your next home.
