Selling Your House: Don't Be a Reality Show Douche

BlogHer Spotlight

I have sold exactly one house in my day, but it was at the beginning of the housing slump and The.Experience.Sucked. What might have saved me, though, just a little, was a reality check at the beginning so I could better embrace the horror of the entire experience. I love Delilah's tips for prospective home sellers (so different than what they say on reality TV).

She writes:

If your home is priced at $150,000 do not be offended by an offer of $140,000 and refuse to even counter back to the prospective buyer. That is not a low-ball offer. Quit being a douchebag. Everyone wants a full priced offer, hardly anyone gets one. That's life.
