Why Downsizing in Real Estate Can be Much Harder than Upsizing...
👉 What looks like from the outside like a rational decision is actually a highly emotional process. Most of us have a strong emotional attachment to our home having lived in the same place for a number of years.
👉 Fond memories such as family gatherings, holidays, and other special occasions create a great deal of apprehension, sadness, and even regret when it comes time to say goodbye to the home we have come to love.
👉 So, we’re pushing it off.
👉 Pretending that we have all the time in the world.
👉 Ignoring the fact that we haven’t opened the door to the third bedroom in months.
👉 The big dining room table has become a convenient storage area instead of a place for family gatherings.
We know that the right time to downsize would have been years ago. Before all these "maintenance" items piled up.
🔻 When the roof was newer
🔻 When the AC didn’t make funny noises
🔻 When the purple color in the bathroom was still fashionable ( though, THAT really never was fashionable )
We all know this, deep down inside, but just like a trip to the dentist - we go when the pain becomes too much to bear.🦷
And that’s not a good position to be in as a home seller.
👉 You don’t want to be in a vulnerable position.
