Your realtor is an idiot hell bent on the most money possible. Since their commission is based on the selling price, you may hear your place is worth more than you thought. It is but only to the commissioned salesperson. I set my house with the most reasonable person. And he doesn’t return phone calls! So here I am with a reduced price. I had to force an open house too!
In the event you think home destruction is too much work. Plan to give your house away. Sell it for 10-15% less than you believe it’s worth. Your realtor will fight you, but your days will go quickly. Your stress will be little.
Oh yeah, throw everything you like out. It’ll help
