How to Sell Your House Fast (LOA Style)
I just read Barbara Corcoran’s article on Oprah.com about How to Sell Your House Fast in a buyer’s market. I get asked this question a lot and was curious about what the experts recommend.
As expected, Barbara suggests pricing it right, and making aesthetic changes like eliminating clutter and lightening up the place. Maybe redoing cabinets and getting new towels for the bathroom.
Regular readers know what I’m going to say about that.
If you want to sell your house fast, the best way to do it is to get aligned fast.
That means paying attention to how you feel and what you’re thinking; checking to see if those thoughts are leading you to the outcome you want; and then redirecting if appropriate.
Typical example, if I do all the right things (pricing it right, cleaning it up, updating key features) but I’m anxious about what might happen if it doesn’t sell, and I repeatedly think about how the neighbors couldn’t sell theirs, and I listen to my sister-in-law about how unlikely it is we’ll get a decent offer in this market – those thoughts and feelings stand in the vibrational way of the results I want.
Lots of folks aren’t trained about how important their vibration is in regards to what happens next.
But your vibration is all that matters.
1) Dial in on what you want, rather than what you fear.
Holding pictures in mind of the outcome you desire isn’t as natural as it sounds. The higher the stakes, the easier it is to entertain visions of what we don’t want. Those mental pictures and thoughts serve as instructions to the vibrational universe to create circumstances to match.
So get your instructions straight.
What’s the thought you’ll think when your house sells fast? What will you see when your house is sold?
Think those things and see those pictures NOW.
And after that:
2) Do what feels good.
When you’re properly dialed in on the outcome you want (imagining it in your mind and feeling it a done deal in your heart), you may find yourself inspired to do something. Honor that inspiration, whatever it is.
That inner nudge or voice within may say “buy a new shower curtain,” or it might say go for a joy ride. It might say “lower the price” or it might say do cartwheels in the backyard. It might say clean out the closet or it might say sit down with a new book.
There’s no predicting what that inner wisdom will say. (It might even say listen to Barbara Corcoran!) But honoring that wisdom, after you’re properly dialed in on what you want (rather than what you expect or what you fear), will inevitably lead you to exactly the outcome you desire.
Get dialed in on what you want, then do what feels good. You’ll be surprised how well that works!
Because it’s easy to overlook this vibrational mismatch, it’s worth mentioning that needing your house to sell fast, or feeling desperate about it, is one of the best ways to ensure it doesn’t.
Release your attachment to your house selling fast, and – believe it or not – it’s much more likely to do just that.
Because the vibrational signal of “need” just ensures we continue to create circumstances that keep us in a state of “need.” Universe is blocked from satisfying us when we’re signaling need instead of satisfaction. That’s why they call it the “law of attraction.”
So if you want it to happen fast, practice feeling now how you would feel then. That vibrational instruction will serve you, no matter how old your cabinets are or how dingy the bathroom.
Back in 1992, Abraham said the best way to get a buyer for your home is to focus on the love you have for your home!
Here’s the exact quote:
“In the moment that you go back and begin vibrating in the glory of that beautiful place, remembering how you felt as you first discovered it, remember the joy that you found within it, focusing upon the positive aspects of it, writing lists of the positive aspects of this glorious place, your vibration will go to the boundaries of the universe far more than any editorial that any real estate agent could put out for you. And those who seek that which you have, and there are many of them, not only that you seek those who have cash, you seek those that are ready to make a deal. You don’t seek those who are dreaming but are not yet ready. You want a ripe tomato, you see.
“And so as you focus upon all of that, it will unfold for you. You have had enough wanting within you to shoot you to the moon. In other words, you are not short on wanting. It is the allowing part that we are adding emphasis to. Just relax within this, and remember how good that spot is, and you will attract very quickly someone to that spot. Good.” – Abraham
