Real Estate Transactions & Stress

Handling The Stress of Selling and Buying a Home

Part of my specialty as a real estate agent is managing stress for my clients.  It means a lot to me when clients tell me at closing, “Wow, Matt, I can’t believe how smoothly everything went.”  It’s a badge of honor for me when I hear things were “stress free” or “low pressure” from my clients’ perspective.

Even in the best case scenario, every real estate transaction comes with a little stress.  If you consider WHY most people are buying or selling a home, the motivation usually comes from either positive or negative life change.  Marriage, the birth of a child, the death of a spouse, divorce, a new job, downsizing… all are common reasons people buy or sell a home.

It’s no surprise that these major life changes are also listed on the “Holmes and Rahe stress scale,” a list of 43 life events which can contribute to illness (  The ability to manage the stress associated with these events isn’t just about feeling good… it’s also a crucial component of maintaining our health along the way.

Since I’m always on the lookout for ways to reduce my clients‘ stress levels during this time of transition, I was thrilled to find this excellent article from Reader’s Digest called “37 Stress Management Tips” to share with you:

            What Is A Short Sale?


            Short Sales in Nutley NJ

            The Problem With Buying Short Sales is that banks are not equipped to handle the volume. The other issues is that the home owner may have multiple loans on the property so its hard to get them all agree to take a portion of what they are owed on the home. A home buyer may get a good deal but it can take up to six months to get an acceptance from the banks. If you want more information on short sales give me a call 973-846-0065 I am a short sale certified agent.
