It’s a natural instinct to rush to defend your home when you hear constructive criticism about it, but fight this urge!
- Whether you like what you are hearing or not, it’s important to listen and consider the feedback you receive.
If you are too quick to defend your home and shut down those conversations, you are missing out on learning valuable knowledge about your property. Ultimately someone is just sharing their opinion with you, and this will always be subjective. However, when it comes to selling real estate, the opinion of the buyers in the market is incredibly important!
Don’t fall into the trap of confirmation bias, where you only look for positive feedback that matches your beliefs about your home. In the world of real estate, there is a very simple way to tell if your home’s condition and price are favorable to the market by looking at the number of showings, and whether those have led to offers. To stay competitive, be open to those valuable and honest critiques, which allow you to take immediate action and ensure you are maximizing your listings potential!
