Successfully selling your home in the shortest period of time is generally an achievable goal, but there are many potential pitfalls to be aware of. Although one of the most important steps you can take involves hiring an experienced, proactive real estate agent, your own attitude and beliefs can have a major impact on things like the final selling price and how long your house stays on the market.

While your real estate agent can provide valuable guidance, advice, and marketing help, there are certain things that only you, the home owner, can do. Maintaining a positive outlook is one of them.

If you have self-defeating attitudes and beliefs, you may be undermining the sales process and keeping potential buyers at a distance. Here are a few examples of how your own negative attitudes can be a major stumbling block to getting your house sold quickly and for an optimal price.

Unrealistic beliefs: Sometimes sellers are so emotionally connected to their homes that they're unable to relate to the viewpoint and perspective of potential buyers. Pricing, for example, should be based on objective criteria and comparative data, rather than emotional attachment or perceived value. If the price you're asking for your home is significantly above the actual market value of your property, then that will raise red flags in the minds of both prospective buyers and mortgage lenders. Although you want to get the highest possible price for your family's home, it has to be based on a realistic range that would be acceptable to both buyers and lenders.

False expectations: Homeowners who expect prospective buyers to recognize the intrinsic value of their home, even though the paint is peeling and the bathrooms have never been updated, are setting themselves up for disappointment and failure! When you factor in human psychology and the competitive nature of the real estate market, it becomes apparent how vitally important first impressions and overall presentation are to the marketing a home.

Pessimism: Although positive thinking, alone, is not going to get your house sold, it can help give you that extra boost of energy and motivation to make sure your home is clean, organized, and visually appealing. Pessimism, on the other hand, can cause you to be less thorough, attentive, and conscientious about keeping your home immaculate, fresh, and ready for potential buyers. If there's any hint of the house being unclean, in disrepair, or cluttered, then you've lost your opportunity to make a positive first impression.

Finding and working with a real estate agent who's got a solid sales record and a proactive approach to selling houses is among the key ingredients to getting your home sold quickly and for the best possible price. Although they'll be doing the lion's share of work when it comes to marketing your property and coordinating the details, your support and cooperation plays an important role in the ultimate success of their efforts.

Having a family changes a lot. For one, your priorities about where youíd like to live change. This shift could be from a desire to live near restaurants and bars to parks and the best schools in a safe neighborhood. If you want to find a good neighborhood to search for a home in, there are a few things that you can research ahead of time before you even start your search for a home.


Research School Districts


For most parents, the school district in which they choose to live is an important part of the decision where to live. If you donít know the area, or arenít sure how the schools are, there are plenty of tools to help you. A quick online search can help you to compare and contrast neighboring school districts. Another important question to ask to find a suitable school district is if they actually have room for all of the students that would like to be enrolled in the school of your choice. You can also talk to people in the community about the schools and how they feel about them. Even a visit to local schools can help you to see what the education system in a certain neighborhood is all about.


Safety


Once you have a family, safety becomes even more of a priority. You do all of the right things from feeding your family well to baby-proofing the home. Yet, one thing thatís sometimes hard to control is the safety of the area that we live in. Youíre going to want to find a neighborhood with low crime rate. Thereís a few different tools online that help you to check the crime rates in certain areas. Donít assume that the city is less safe than the suburbs, or even a rural area. Doing research and getting to know the area is key to finding a safe place to settle down in. 


Shortcuts And Speedways


In the same realm as safety, you want to check out the actual street that you hope to settle down on. Some streets can be used as shortcuts and can end up being a speedway. You should check to make sure that the street you choose isn't a high traffic route. Youíll never feel comfortable having your children outside playing if you know that traffic is so dangerous on your street. 



Community Sense


Once you have a family, you suddenly find a need to build a network of other parents and families that are just like you. A good way to tell a family friendly neighborhood could be just taking a peek through it. If you see families outside for a walk together, toys in the front yard, or a thriving neighborhood park, itís a good bet that your home will be in a family-friendly community.
