Selling a home is not as easy as sticking a sign in your front lawn and waiting for the offers to start coming in. Even when aided by a professional Realtor, the process can seem drawn out and complicated. Remember that patience is the key to writing a successful and financially rewarding conclusion to this chapter in your life.
First, understand that not everyone who comes to your open house is a potential buyer. There are some folks out there that visit open houses as a hobby of sorts, perhaps looking for decorating ideas for their own home. You might also see the “nosy neighbors” who are only interested in getting a look inside. Browsers are simply part of the process.
But for the most part, those who do visit your home are there because they are truly interested in seeing what’s currently on the market. When offers do start coming in, take them very seriously and once again exercise patience. Even if you view the offer as low, it’s often presented as a means of opening a negotiation. Allow your Realtor to handle the details on your behalf.
