The stress of selling a home

It is said that selling a home is one of modern life’s most stressful experiences – often cites as second only to a relationship break-up. And the stress seems especially severe for millennials and baby boomers with 36 percent saying the experience left them in tears.

In a recent Zillow survey, 70 percent stressed over setting the right price, 69 percent worried about the time frame, and 65 percent were concerned that the deal would fall through.

Of course, selling a home is often accompanied at the same time with buying a home which only increases the pressure. A full 70 percent of those surveyed admitted that they mistimed the process with the sale of their home taking longer than expected.
