Posted by Dan Miller, REALTOR on Saturday, October 17th, 2020 at 5:38am.

If you're like many sellers these days, you probably feel overwhelmed and a bit panicked when you think about all of the challenges confronting you. Our team is here to help you address all of these challenges and replace your feeling of overwhelm with a sense of calm and confidence. Below we cover a few of the common stressors that many sellers experience, and how to address each one of them. 

Mad City Dream Homes Selling Your Home

Commons stressors during the home-selling process

Home repair and cosmetic updates

Most homes have some wear and tear that should be addressed prior to sale, and some homes need a few cosmetic updates. We can help you prioritize the projects that will provide the best return on investment -- and connect you with reliable contractors, too. Be proactive with your repairs and updates. Begin this work well before you need to sell, and you'll avoid a lot of unnecessary stress down the road. 


If you're like most sellers you don't know where to begin with staging your home. Our stager, Debbie Lea, takes all of the guesswork out of the process for you. Debbie will tell you exactly how to stage your home room-by-room. Follow Debbie's recommendations, and you'll be amazed by your home's transformation. Remember, we offer Debbie's expertise free of charge when you sell your home with Mad City Dream Homes.

De-cluttering, packing, and preparing to move

If you're feeling overwhelmed by all of the de-cluttering and packing that's required for your move, we can connect you with a reputable moving company and other contractors who will do all of the hard work and heavy lifting for you. We work with some great local companies who will make your life easier and take on the burden of moving for you. 

Your health and safety during the pandemic

This is a big concern for most sellers right now. We're here to help you choose a showing strategy that gives you peace of mind during the pandemic. You might choose to move out of your home before showings begin, allow virtual showings only, or allow in-person showings with safety precautions in place. No matter which approach you choose, we'll work through all of the details with you. 

Navigating the sale

You have a lot riding on your sale, and if you're like most sellers, you probably feel anxious about managing all of the moving parts -- especially during a pandemic. Please know we are personally invested in you and your sale and we're here to manage every detail for you. From the pricing, to the marketing, the showings, negotiation -- and all of the logistics. We work closely with you so you always know how your sale is progressing. We're in constant communication with you, the buyer agent, the lender, and title company to ensure your sale proceeds to a successful closing.
