1.  Selling FSBO: Trying to sell your home on your own is admirable, but just doesn’t make sense. There are so many things to take into account when selling a home, not to mention the fact that most FSBO homes end up listing with an agent eventually anyways. Why waste the energy, time and frustration of doing it yourself, when you could just hire a professional to get the job done for a reasonable price and make sure your home sells for top dollar.

2. Mispricing your home: Incorrectly pricing your home can be a big problem. Price it too high, and you’ll get no showings or offers until you reduce it. If you underprice your home, you may get too many offers to keep track of, and it may be hard to sell for top dollar. A good agent can come in and help you price your home correctly for top dollar.

3. Using lousy photos:  We’ve all seen them online, the weird sideways pictures with bad lighting, and clutter in the background. Nothing turns off potential buyers more than bad online photographs. You need to have a professional photographer take pictures that tell the real story of your home, that’s what will attract people to your home online.

4. Ignoring the backyard and landscaping: Oftentimes, people will make a decision on whether they like a home or not in the first 15 seconds of seeing the property. Having nice landscaping will help quell buyers' fears. Don’t ignore the backyard though, that’s an easy way to turn buyers off as well.

 

There you have it, the four major mistakes that will screw up your home sale. If you are thinking of buying or selling soon, give me a call or send me an email. I’d love the opportunity to interview for the job, and I look forward to hearing from you!
