Real estate is one of the most emotional transactions you will experience in life. It is dealt with in such large sums of money which ultimately alter which direction your life will head. But when it comes to the renting and selling of your biggest asset, you’re down to the business side and there’s no room for emotion.
If you are objective with your decision making you’ll find that the stars will align for you in most cases. It’s not easy to detach your feelings from such a big decision, though remaining objective will keep your expectations controlled and conservative which lines you up to win most of the time.
The reason why being conservative helps is because it takes the pressure away from yourself when you’re left to an open market. If your pricing is competitive, the market will respond kindly and force your price up. That way you have a greater chance of getting a result higher than you what you expected.
Be guided by your agent and allow them to do there job. Don’t get greedy and price yourself out of the market thinking that’s a safe option. You will lose the authority as a seller and end up taking low offers six months down the track.
