Listing your house to sell can be a nightmare. If you want top dollar you’ll need to make costly repairs and upgrades, catch up on deferred maintenance, depersonalize your house as to not offend any potential buyers, pay for professionally staging, host open houses on the weekends and hide during showings with your kids, dogs and cats at a moment’s notice… and don’t forget to make those beds every morning!!!
That’s not even talking about getting qualified buyers to your current house, the negotiation process, costly repairs and closing fees. Then you must pack up and move at least once to avoid 2 mortgage payments and get the remainder of your stuff out of storage that you had to hide for all the showings.
The entire home buying and selling experience can be filled with unforeseen costs, frustration and anxiety!
