Selling your home can be time-consuming and emotionally straining, which is why it is important that you don’t unknowingly make the process even more painful by making these home selling mistakes.
Pricing is wrong!
Overpricing your home is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Buyers today are savvy, and know how much your home is worth compared to other homes that have recently sold, and every time you decrease the price, buyers will become increasingly suspicious that “something is wrong” with your home.
Not preparing your home for the market & showings!
Sellers who prepare and stage their home end up selling for 17% more than those who do not. Cleaning, depersonalizing, decluttering, and staging a home ensures that buyers see it in its very best light, and can envision themselves living in your home. Investing some time and effort upfront to prepare your home will increase the likelihood of receiving offers.
You Don't Look Best Online.
Most buyers are scrolling for homes on their phones, which is why it is crucial to have high-quality photos with good lighting (and editing) taken that capture your home’s best features. It is typically the photos that are piquing a buyer’s interest in your home and prompting them to take the next step by scheduling a showing.
Going with the agent that has the "cheapest” commission!!
When it comes to hiring a real estate agent, the saying, “you get what you pay for” rings true. Just like any other professional, you are paying not just for the service provided, but for the years of knowledge and experience.
Selling a home is, for most people, something undertaken only a few times in our lives. Hiring an agent to guide you through the entire process is a smart choice to fund & easily facilitate your next step.
