Top Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Home

Top Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Home:

Working Alone

Selling by yourself might save commission fees, but you miss out on a real estate agent’s invaluable market knowledge and network. And having your home in the MLS alerts agents that will show and possibly make an offer much quicker than selling on your own.

For SaleOverpricing

High pricing can initially seem beneficial, but it often leads to a need for price reductions after missing the critical initial listing period. Buyers see a price reduction as there must be something wrong with the home that it had a price reduction and that can be very hard to overcome.

Skipping Repairs

Simple tasks like painting are essential, but addressing major issues is equally important for a successful sale. If buyers come through your home and see a lot of deferred maintenance they may pass if they consider a high price as well. Make your house shine with a good scrubbing and some small maintenance repairs.

Being Unavailable

Flexibility for house showings is key. Ensure you can vacate and present your home in top condition at short notice. Allowing your home to be available to see at any time gives you a better chance of selling quickly, and that means getting an offer so you can getting back to living (and packing) more quickly. Sell smart and efficiently for a quicker sale!
