Even if the process hasn’t gone as smoothly as you had hoped, be thankful that you still have a home to sell. There are millions of people throughout the country who don’t have a home to call their own, and many millennials are still living in their parents’ basement. During the holiday season especially, be grateful that you have a roof over your head, as well as for the fact that once you sell, you’ll most likely have another.
The improving economy is another reason to be thankful this holiday season. As the economy continues to improve, so too does the housing market, making it a good time to have a home listed as the market appears to be performing better than it has over the last three years.
It’s also important to pay thanks to the fact that we live in a world where technological advancements make it easier than ever to show your home to prospective buyers. The Internet, mobile phones and tablets have made showcasing your house as easy as clicking a button. Plus, advancements in cameras and videos can work to your advantage when it comes to highlighting your home more beautifully than ever.
More often than not, when people take a step back and examine their lives and think about all that they have, they become more charitable—something that can help when preparing for a sale. Giving away clothes or items that you no longer use/need will eliminate some of the clutter from your home and go a long way toward helping others.
And last but not least, be thankful that you’re working with a savvy real estate professional who can seamlessly guide you through the process. Today’s agents work hard to ensure your home is properly marketed to everyone out there, and more often than not, you’re not seeing everything that goes on behind the scenes. In fact, recent research from the National Association of REALTORS® shows that houses are selling faster and for more money today, a feat that couldn’t be achieved without real estate professionals who are at the top of their game.
