You don’t have to think of a good excuse if you decide to sell your dear old family home. It’s okay to say “I want to sell my house because I just don’t like it anymore.” People move all the time. In fact, the last time the Census Bureau did a mobility study, they found that at least 11.2 percent of Americans move each year. (That’s a lot fewer people than in years past.)
Americans move mostly because they want a better place to live. And that’s your point exactly. You don’t like your house and you want a better place to live. There’s one big problem though. If you don’t like your house anymore, how are you going to convince someone else to buy it?
Should I ask a realtor if she can sell my house?
The thing is, once the idea of moving settles into your head, it’s difficult to let it go. You have to do something so, as most movers do, you phone a realtor.
A realtor will inspect your home, examining every lightless corner and every wall of flaky paint. Realtors look at your dull-green lawn and let out a quiet sigh. They silently tally up the fixes, upgrades, and overhauls it will take to get your home into market-ready condition. Before they leave, they toss out a few realtor buzzwords like “illusion of space” and “curb appeal.”
After one inspection, a real estate agent will understand why you don’t like your home anymore. Yet they will take it on as a marketing challenge.
If I do enough upgrades, will that help me sell my house?
If you don’t even like your home anymore, imagine the work it will take for someone else to love it enough to take it off of your hands. When you list with a traditional real estate agent, you’ll get the work done because you have to.
You’ll do all the recommended fixups and upgrades and overhauls. It will cost quite a bit but your home will look good enough to list… and maybe even good enough to sell. It might even look good enough for you to love it the way you did when you first emptied out your bank account and took out a mortgage to buy it all those years ago.
It shouldn’t be that hard
If you don’t like your home anymore, selling it shouldn’t be a big, expensive production. That’s the way it is but it doesn’t have to be.
