Do I go the fair way or the family way when it comes to selling a home? Do i sell it to the one that offers the most money, or take a cut for family?

Family or Best Offer

I'm in the process of selling my home and I need some advice about a concern of mine. I have 3 people interested in buying my home. The first one that showed interest in buying home is a family member.

I placed an ad in 2 papers with a certain price that I agreed to start the bidding on. Many people told me that I was trying to sell my home to cheap.

Days later a young couple came to see the house that have several children and need a bigger house. I felt good about the idea of them buying the house. The frustrating part is that the person that is family can't pay as much as the stranger that told me he could pay.

I always try to put family first, and I have in this case. I want to be fair as well with all of the interested parties.

I would like to ask my readers a question

Would you go for the highest bidder, even if you knew by going higher that family lost out on buying the house.

I told the family member that if it was only 1 thousand dollar cheaper I would go for the family member having the house. I think it is fair to allow all the concerned buyers of my house to have an equal chance in buying the house.

Readers what is your opinion?

I would sell to the young couple with several children.
Because I am renting and I know how difficult it is to find an apartment that will allow you to live with all your little ones, so by giving this opportunity to this family, a big difference will be made. Great article! And Many blessings.

Business is business and family comes first...What a predicament. I like the $1000 or less idea and I think that is more than fair.
