IKEA is Life

If you ever want to find out how you handle stress, head to IKEA.  Stand at the entrance and you'll see people going in happy and coming out stressed and miserable.  Walk through the maze and you hear sighs, snipes, gripes, and screaming kids.


It's a nightmare.


It's not that IKEA is bad...One quick glance around our homes and you can see that we LOVE the place.  Decent looking furniture at a reasonable price that you can fit in your car.  And you get to feel like a carpenter when you finish putting it all together.


It's just overwhelming.


You're faced with WAY too many decisions.


"What type of shelf, the thick one or the thin one?"


"How big should it be?"


"What color?"


"Should I get the doors?"


If you don't walk in there with a plan, you will crumble and buy everything, or eventually give up and leave with whatever's in your cart.


It’s kind of like trying to sell your home yourself.


You’ve got a general idea of the process and what an agent does so you take some pictures yourself and stick a sign on your lawn and get ready for the offers to roll in.


But there are way more things to manage than you anticipated. 


“What’s the right price to list my house at?”


“Why don’t my pictures look as good as others I’ve seen?”


“People want to see my house but I’m at work all day?”


“I don’t have time to field all the calls and emails from people interested in seeing my house!”



Too many things to manage, too many decisions to make.  If your house doesn’t sell quickly you could be facing this kind of stress for a few weeks maybe even a month or longer.


That’s why using an amazing real estate team like Property Matchmakers Melissa & Jenell makes all the difference.  You don’t need to navigate the process yourself.  They know what to do to showcase your home best and they have the resources to manage the process – no mental energy required on your part.


No guesswork…..only results.
