Relocate to Wisconsin : Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce - Short Sale (Keller Williams 414-525-0563)

There's No Excuse for the House being Messy ! YES there is !

   Imagine that your life as you know it changed....you lost your job, your spouse left with another person...and the savings account.....you are a single parent overnight with no Life upside downsupport other than the part time job you had....the house needs some repairs......bills continue and income does not.   

     If you think that this condition has economic or geographic areas...you would be wrong....it's Doctors, Lawyers, teachers, tradespeople....no one is immune...and the strong not only survive...but come back to a new life a stronger person...it just may not happen in an instant...things take time to heal and start again.  The courage to get upMessy life and face a new day...taking on as many responsibilities as can be handled is all that can be expected. 

    When you show a home where income is sparse whether it is a Short sale or not....be kind.

     The best definition I have ever heard of depression is "anger turned Inward"....people are understandably frustrated with their lives due to circumstances beyond their control. When you are "at the bottom" or on your way there...the dishes in the sink, freshly vacuumed floors, etc. are not your top priority....functioning the best you know how for yourself and the people who depend on you....ARE....and some days that is difficult.

Empathy  You don't know what those other shoes feel like they are walking in...that the toes pinch and the heels rub....they do.

   Before you write that showing report that complains about what was not dusted...or discourage buyers because you can only imagine how much maintenance has NOT been done....Take a breath....a kinder one...you aren't selling dust or dirty dishes....you ARE selling a piece of someone's life history  which right now is not as perfect as anyone wishes it to be....

         This is a professional public service post brought to you by Sally K.  & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates at Keller Williams honored to represent southeastern Wisconsin.
