Are Your Motivated Enough To Sell Your House?
On a scale from one to ten, with one being ready to sell and move right now, and 10, being you really don’t care if your home sells or not, where are you on the scale?
Between 6 and 10? Then your house will most likely not sell. Are you one of the many who are just testing out the market? Do you think your need (or desire) to move is at the point where you’ll do what it takes to make it happen? Are you ready to move right now?
I usually suggest holding off from listing a home for sale if the home sellers have a motivation level well above 6. Also, usually unmotivated sellers find they come to the end of the listing period frustrated. I know it’s hard having your home show ready at all times and fielding curious questions from neighbours. Sometimes unmotivated sellers will also blame their Realtor for not selling their home even when things were not done by the sellers to make it marketable in the first place.
Sellers with a motivation level under 5 will sell their house every single time!
If your answer was between 1 and 5, congratulations, your home is almost certain to sell the first time around. These are wonderful home sellers because they are realistic, and are willing to do what is necessary to sell.
One question… pretty simple right?
When your motivation level reaches that point, you’ll know it. That’s the point you’ll be ready to not only list your house, but sell it!
So, on a scale from 1 to 10, where are you? Are you motivated enough to sell your house?
Let’s find out! Here are some simple questions that will help you determine exactly how motivated you are to sell your house. It’s an important step, but often overlooked.
These are the two most important questions you need to answer before listing your home for sale.
- Why do you want to move?
- How soon would you like your move to happen?
The answers to these two questions will determine how motivated you are to sell and how much hard work you are willing to put in to making the sale go through.
