Find out more about Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty's system to sell fast and high.

Did you know that there are a few major mistakes you can make when selling your home? As a seller, it's important to be aware of these potential pitfalls so that you can avoid them.

Wouldn't it be nice to know how to avoid making costly mistakes?

A report recently published by some of the top minds in real estate, "The 9 step system to get your home sold fast and for top dollar," identifies mistakes that sellers often make. The report also contains a comprehensive plan consisting of easy-to-follow steps to ensure you earn the highest profit from selling your home.

Not making your home presentable for potential buyers is a mistake.

If you're selling your home, one of the keys to success is making sure it looks its best. This doesn't just mean keeping things tidy--it means considering how a potential buyer will see your house and what impression they'll have.

However, there is more to do than just keeping the house clean when trying to appeal to a potential buyer.

In order to be effective, you should:

  • Get your home in order by getting rid of the clutter.
  • Removing family photos from walls and shelves
  • Packing miscellaneous items and decorations
  • Deodorizing your home for guests (pet odors, cooking, etc.)
  • Downsizing your belongings to the essentials

You may be wondering why you should take down family photos and decorations from the walls and shelves.

Because each potential buyer is unique, you cannot predict what they want or how they will react when viewing your home.

Give buyers the opportunity to see themselves living in your home by minimizing personal photos and decorations that could serve as a distraction.

Some people don't want to buy a home where there have been too many pets, kids, or grandkids living there. They might believe that the house has too much wear and tear and possible unseen damage, especially if the walls and shelves are covered.

2. Overselling during showings has the potential to frighten away buyers.

Are you ever made to feel pressured into purchasing a new car because the salesperson is exuding an overpowering aura of confidence, and appears to know everything about their product? It can be intimidating.

This happens frequently, especially with high-priced items.

When people feel like they're being pushed too hard to buy something, it can drive them away quickly.

Why do we get offended so easily? Because it usually means something is wrong, or at least that's the appearance.

It is beneficial to leave the house when it is being shown by the realtor; this includes removing yourself, your children, and your pets.

If you go with a professional, you can be confident that they will get the job done well and efficiently. You also won't have to worry about taking things personally or saying something that could jeopardize the sale.

The potential buyer will feel more at ease asking questions and won't have to worry about offending you.

3. Making it Challenging for Buyers to Obtain Details About Your Home

When you put your home on the market, you want to make sure that interested parties have everything they need to know to determine if they will purchase your residence.

Too often, home sellers do not understand how much information they need to share. It is always better to err on the side of caution and give them more rather than less information.

The right real estate expert will know how to put together a complete listing package, including all the paperwork and information potential buyers need. They will have everything set out and ready to go before showings start, so that interested buyers can take it with them when they leave.
