Selling your house can be an emotional experience

March 22, 2012

When the time comes to pack up your belongings and move on to a new home, many thoughts flood your mind.

Perhaps you are selling a house to upgrade to a larger living space.

While it may seem like a great idea when your kids are fighting because they are tired of sharing a room, there will likely come a time when you would gladly give up more space to hold onto precious memories.

After all, this house could be where your child said their first words and learned how to walk.

However, there are ways to ease your anxiety and look forward to your new home where you will make new memories.

One way is to think of your past and the house as two separate entities, and then think of the house as a commodity.

An excerpt from Selling Your Home For Dummies shared by Karin Derkley recommends focusing on your home as a marketable asset and offers ten strategies to help you get the best possible price for your residential property.

Included in this list are removing personal clutter, building more storage and targeting the right market.
