SWIFT TIP from THE HOMESELLER'S PLAYBOOK: Our homes are our haven from the stresses and troubles of life. When we move in, we become less objective because we begin to fill it with memories and events entertaining family and friends. Itís difficult to separate the feelings you have about your "home" from the "house" you are about to sell.However, you must begin to emotionally disconnect to take charge of the home selling process, seeing it now as an asset/investment worth thousands of dollars.
