Sell your home – easy, fast, and worry-free!

It takes a lot of hard work putting your home up for sale. While some people think that it’s simply about coming up with beautiful photos of your Capitola CA home, hosting a few open houses, posting about your home on social media, and hoping the right buyer comes along – well, you’re in for a surprise.


Health and wellness experts have proven that putting your home up for sale is an experience that is as much stressful as filing for bankruptcy, planning a wedding, or getting divorced. There are plenty of things that you need to take care of when selling your home – from marketing it to handling the paperwork to meeting with prospective buyers.

Here are factors that you need to know to avoid the stress of selling  homes in Capitola CA.

3 ways to best deal with the stress of selling your Capitola CA home:

Before attempting to be a seller, you must first check out these simple tips to help you avoid the unnecessary hassle. Sell smarter, not harder.

  1. Be financially prepared to sell.

Just because you’re the one selling a home doesn’t mean you’re exempt from any pre-selling expenses. Some items to consider are closing costs, home improvement, and home repairs. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to miss out on hundreds of thousands of dollars simply because of a simple lighting fixture that you could have gotten fixed for a couple of dollars, would you?

Ensuring that you get top dollar for your home means you need to account for the costs of getting it ready for listing. And unless your home is fully paid off, you also need to take care of any discharge fees that you might incur for your mortgage. Apart from this, being a seller also means you have to pay legal fees, bank fees, consultancy fees, property taxes, and more.

  1. Prepare your home for sale in Capitola CA.

One of the reasons sellers get stressed out is because they are unprepared to enter the real estate market. Whether you’re buying or selling, learning more about the real estate industry will help you better gauge exactly how much you can get out of the sale, when is the perfect time to put your home up for sale, and more.

Another way to prepare your home is making sure that it’s in its best shape – no maintenance issues, no dirt or clutter, and no repairs are needed. Potential buyers want to be able to see themselves living in your home and a dirty sink isn’t going to paint them a convincing picture.

  1. Take a breather.

Go outside and take some time off from dealing with all the selling preparations. Give yourself a break and remember that you’re only one person. Even if this isn’t the first time you’re selling home, you need a moment to clear your head from any and all the distractions so that you can focus on the work that you need to get done.
