    S2-E10 -- Protecting Family Relationships when Selling a Property in Queens or NYC

    S2-E10 -- Protecting Family Relationships when Selling a Property in Queens or NYC

    Selling a home is almost always a stressful process, no matter how smoothly it goes. That stress can often bring underlying family or relationship issues to the surface. Even when relationships are strong, if two or more people have different perspectives or priorities related to a home sale, it can quickly become tense and difficult -- especially in New York City where so much money is involved. In this episode, at Abigail Herrera's suggestion, we talk about different situations and different family relationships that we often encounter in a sale, and how families -- and agents -- can handle these situations to avoid as much tension as possible. We look at estate sales, sibling rivalries, divorces, and all sorts of other situations where potential disagreements and tensions can arise and discuss the simple, key elements to ensuring a smooth and successful sale.
