Myth: I will not sell, I will die in this house!!

Today's myth is I will not sell, I will die in this home. Is this myth true? Welcome to today's episode of Myth versus the Truth.

Now, we understand, that many times when we're door knocking we'll come across some sellers that have say or some people that would say that no, I would never sell my home. I'm going to live here forever until I die. We understand the emotional part of it. You raise your family there, it's your home, you've lived there for 20 or 30 plus years and it's something that it's emotionally attached to you. You just can't think of going anywhere else. And I understand that. But sometimes we need to be practical. We need to give it a clear thought as to whether or not this home is continuing to be resourceful for us. So we have to be very thoughtful or mindful and say is this home practical for my current lifestyle or is this going to be a liability?

Let me help you to put some points into view for this. If your family is around, if you have support, if you have people around you that help you to maintain and I want that you understand this word to maintain that home to the standards and that's working for you, that's perfect. You don't need to do anything. But if your family is not close to you and it's just you're paying around to try to keep the house in shape. If the home becomes a burden, like it's actually more expensive for you and it's not fitting at this point in your lifestyle is considered to move to a condo that has everything around you is set and you just have your maintenance fee and then you can actually enjoy and have a new lifestyle that's setting to your new times. That is just so that you can have a lifestyle that you want at any time. You just have to make it for yourself. Think for yourself first.

A house is actually a home, but it's more than that, it has to fit the lifestyle because when a family buys their first home or second home or their primary home, they don't buy a house. They make it a home, but they buy the lifestyle. It has to fit the lifestyle. Now, the home you bought 40 years back, or 30 years back, if you still fit in your lifestyle, not taking time out of you or giving you troubles, then enjoy the home, stay in this home. But if it is, time to make a tough decision, what's going to give you a better result for your life down the road.

Hopefully, this information will help you decide to continue to live your life happily. See you next week in another episode of Myth versus the Truth.
