We ask sellers not to be present during showings for the very reason you state: you take it personally, and may not respond in a manner to help you sell the house.
But if you are intent on selling your place yourself, here's how to the get the most C (cash) by doing the C's --- color, cleanliness, curb appeal, de-clutter, condition (repairs)
showing your home, because you are sensitive to the potential buyers comments, that is exactly one of
the reasons to remove yourself from the selling and negotiating process, and let a Realtor do this in your best interest and on your behalf, without any personal and emotional involvement.

Bottom line: you should NEVER be there when your house is being shown. PERIOD.
My agent tip? Get an agent and let them do their job. Or, if you insist on doing this yourself, if you donâ€™t like the feeling of rejection when buyers donâ€™t like what they see? Get over it.
