Getting Mentally Prepared for Showings, Offers, and Negotiations

Once you get your home on the market you need to get prepped for the next stages - showings, offers, and negotiations. How do you go about getting mentally prepared for that?

Showings are obviously a bit unnerving because you’re constantly worried about the cleanliness, care, and maintenance of the house while people are checking it out. Maybe you have pets in the house or maybe you have young kids who take naps throughout the day. In this episode, we’ll get into some tips for how to prepare for that as well as the next stage which is dealing with offers and negotiations.

What you’ll learn:

  • Preparing for the first weekend of showings.
  • Make it as easy on yourself as possible.
  • When you go through the offer, be sure to look at factors other than the pricing, like the escrow timeline, financing of the buyer, and more.
  • What if you’re getting no offers on your home? Maybe you need to lower the price. 
  • What to do if you get multiple offers?
  • What are some secondary negotiations? Request for repairs.
